I have had similar experiences with philosophers.
To change the subject, can you or anyone else answer this question:
How do you define the word religion?
@Michael Tricoci: Testable proof of god is oxymoronic.
That depends on how you define god? Many people simply define god as being untestable by usual verifiable means.
I don't see any contradiction in what I said. Some people define it as untestable, others do not.
If someone comes up with a test for god, fine, bring it on; obviously I doubt anything will result of it, but I don't see how god is untestable by all definitions.
