    I still stand by my assertion that if an amputee instantly grew back an arm the second the faith healer laid hands on him that this would be enough to persuade me that there is something supernatural happening. Some of you said that would not even be enough. Now THAT is unpersuadable! LOL.

      I think that everyone has some kind of bizarre beliefs. And i think that people get so uncomfortable when other people don't believe in those things.

    Wow, there were a ton of topics breached last Sunday and I thought some of them would be good for our MFA Googlegroups Forum (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/memphisfreethoughtalliance). Sometimes it is impossible to cover everything people want to discuss so I encourage folks who are not yet on the Forum to join in the debates!
    For example, I am going to post some stuff on global warming for David L. to peruse.

      We should also talk about when to believe that people are really able to speak alien languages, dead languages and so forth. I don't think that being very skeptical that a) a person learned the klypotmertic language from the planet Klypotron after being abducted by aliens or b) an 8 year old from California can speak a dead language from a past life is being close minded. I think it is just being reasonable. The saying "don't let your mind be so open that your brain falls out" is relevant to that discussion.

      Or, being always open to evidence is the way I would approach these claims. That way, there are some windows open with good window screens to hold your brain in at all times.
