So it's ironic that the only proof you can think of for logic doesn't meet logic's own standards of proof.
It's not ironic, it's metaphyiscally necessary. I didn't offer proof, I offered an observation.
I don't know if you intended it that way, but your question made a kind of metaphysical joke.
A is A, the final and most basic reason anything should be recognized as itself is that it exists... no...
Only if you believe something can have meaning without God. To you logic is giving these sentences meaning - to them it is God.

Faith is not required to accept an...

Well, it is.
There's rational arguments for and against it.
A rational argument is like sweet sugar. To say an argument is irrational is to say it...
I suspect this is the cause of our disagreement: I suspect that religion itself has a moral danger, while you believe religious violence is imposed by people on religion (as seems to be true of most in...
To clarify, if someone came up with a religion of reason; in which God rewarded you only for figuring it out yourself with logic, and would not give you your eternal reward unless you "did your homework...
One can ultimately speculate about whether the people involved in such conflicts all had some secret non-religious purpose, but I find it very hard to believe that all of the millions who have taken part...
You must be specifc to the word "They "
The first they refers to religions, no religion has become terribly violent based on the majority followers or orthodox dogma.

Silly thing to ask, but you guys have noticed that it was a joke right? Look at the comment underneath the pic. She is making fun of the people who were making fun of hobby lobby.
