in thread Which came first?

As a good Catholic, I don't have to literally interpret Genesis

One of the few things I like about catholicism*. Anyway, I want to thank you for showing that just because you're religious doesn't mean you're not allowed to think logically. I'm not being sarcastic either: for some reason that's something I don't see much on the internet these days. Though that may be because many of the sites I frequent have a high percentage of American visitors**.

* For the record: I'm an atheist, and not particularly in favour of religions in general.

** And I'm Dutch. No disrespect meant to Americans, but the US seems to be one of the most fundamentally religious countries in the western world.

    In respect to the american comment above, there is rarely definitive secular behavior worthy of sensationalist news. It is sort of like thinking americans must be violent jerks because that's what makes the paper. Lastly, there is a geographical slant to this sort of thing, too.

    I'd say that America isn't as you see it, but our media only likes to report on extremes so that's what we look like.
