Shakepen; religion flies in the face of common sense.

That's not the way that you represent it.

Shakepen says:
Spin: we want our results within the standard deviation.

Sam: You are a man who likes absolutes. There are very few absolutes when dealing with human beings. This statement is true regarding their anatomies, physiologies, emotional, and intellectual facets.

No. If anything, it's you who has taken it to an unwarranted absolute. I have no problems with variations, subtleties, and non-absolutes. I'm just pointing out that you're using these statistics incorrectly. Rather than attacking me, perhaps you should just acknowledge that you were wrong and change what you were doing.

Sam: How can I be using stats incorrectly if I use the average and note deviations from the average?

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Jun 2012 21:18:40 BDT
You use them incorrectly by implying that it shows that all people who hold religious beliefs are better adjusted than those who don't.

Shakepen says:
Sam: All right, I'll amend my statement to: religious people have a greater probablility of being-well adjusted than their evil, Satanic atheistic counterparts. :)

I don't vote and don't pay attention to the voting.
Did you consider the possibility that people think my posts add to the discussion?

Conscience needs guidance and knowledge in order to operate-- it also in the last analysis makes its own decisions or it isn't conscience. Read Newman on the subject.

Tell your condom-using Catholic pals. They don't agree.

Shakespen: SD is the fault of statistics, which makes any science relying on it open to question...

Spin says:
T; Why would a person "need guidance" to know what is right and what is wrong? What makes you think that your concept of "Right" is superior and more beneficial than anyone elses concept? Because it says so in a book?

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jun 2012 13:25:48 BDT
Guidance and knowledge are necessary but not sufficient conditions for conscience.

In reply to an earlier post on 23 Jun 2012 13:27:32 BDT
Because the purely individual viewpoint is often flawed and biased through self-interest -- eg the way most people vote. Surely you know Catholics don't simply follow a book, although they do take it into account.

Then why is the Vicar of Christ treated as inferior to personal inclination?

In reply to an earlier post on 26 Jun 2012 14:58:22 BDT
Because conscience is the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Pope is guaranteed to be that voice only under very special circumstances == about 3 times in 150 years.

Guaranteed by whom?

T: True. Catholics do not believe in a book. They believe in a man. But since they have no direct contact with that man, they rely on what is said about him to such an extent that hey begin to believe in "the man in the stories" rather than in the real man himself...The supposed words and ethics of Jesus are provided in secondary sources rather than from the man himself...And, more seriously, and of more consequence, catholics believe in the interpretations of these writings by men who are, in truth, no better qualified to pronounce on ethics than anyone else...

They have contact with that man through the holy spirit, as does the rest of the Church (the Christian Church, not just the RC branch). However there also have to be checks and balances, because no one is completely open to the Holy Spirit except Jesus.
