    "The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly
    teaches me to suspect that my own is also." - Mark Twain

    i think this quote carries some truth to it, which is applicable to any faith-based religion. for virtually every religion in existence, there will be somebody who dismisses it as folly with easy confidence.

    additionally, by adhering strictly to one religion, you are, in a sense, dismissing all others as folly (implicitly, at least temporarily even the ones you don't know anything about).

    here's to hoping that you're right!
    (translation: here's to hoping that i'm right!)

    Yes, all the people who have been so critical of my skepticism have shown no reluctance to dismiss my new found super-spiritual Muffy.

    I love Mark Twain.

    Finally, that aside is one of the coolest things. Really amazing. Deserves a rec just for that.
