  • Ah, the amusements of ludicrous organized religion.

    It would be funnier if organized religions didn't kill people so regularly, though.

    You are what you think.
    • Oh, please. Blaming this, or "killing people", on "organized religion" is like blaming bad programming on the language, instead of on the programmers themselves.
      • I didn't blame anything. People get killed for any number of reasons.

        I find organized religions funny; I would find them more humorous if they had not, in history, had a tendency to get humans killed.

        I apologize for bringing the point up, since it's so utterly non-perl.

        :)

          I would find Perl more humorous if it had not, in history, had a tendency to make people write bad code.
          • {Perl} is not equivalent to {organized religions}. {organized religions} covers an enormous set of sets; {Perl} covers a set. Perhaps

            I would find *organized programming groups* more funny if they had not, in history, had a tendency to make people write bad code.

            would be a more analogous statement?

            You're right, though. 'organized religions' was too much of a generalization. I have a tendency to view any 'organized' things as 'intolerant' things, from religions to corporations to governments.

            I apologize, both to the individuals within them and the groups themselves; my experience with organized anything has been pretty limited. (Bad, but limited.)

            I should know better by now, having had some chance to examine organizations that are both tolerant and beneficial to humanity. :)
