    No doubt Wilma and Betty unearthed a few bones.

    If that is true then contact your lawyer first and then the bank.

    Indeed it is. Went there once on an invite . . . which was more than enough.

    I'm sure is was nicer millions of years ago.

    Geez, just got a real hit job in this thread.

    Like, show me where on the doll the Cenozoic era touched you.

    Can't even operate on a dictionary definition of the word "cult."

    Pretty sure when you're looking up "cult" in the dictionary, synonyms aren't "science" or "geology."

    I mean, true, but also beside the point.

    I didn't bring it up. I only applied the relevant term to what someone else had raised. But I suppose this is what happens when a platinum supporting member complains about something a non-supporting member says.

    Not a big deal. I'm just one of those guys who'll talk dispassionately about anything, nothing is too sacred. And on the flip side, I'm lately finding myself rather disappointed in people (e.g. the more passionate types) and am probably a bit touchy as a result.

    Not sure to which "platinum supporting member" you are referring, but I did not report any posts in this thread, nor did I contact the moderators.
    I made a simple comment regarding the reality on this forum, whether I agree with it, or you, or not.
    There are two topics that are 100% prohibited on all of Alex's forums, and you hit on one of them.

    I only speak to this as a matter of logic.

    Cults exist, and religions do not have a monopoly on the sociological and psychological properties of them. I can think of several such examples off hand.

    Everything I said was non-religious and pertained to historical facts.

    But I guess most of us haven't studied cultural history and anthropology, and I shouldn't expect others to be able to walk the line as casually as I do. And that's just the kind of thing that I find disappointing about humans, the inability to suspend passions.
