This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

I would agree by HTownND
I would however, simply point out, you are trading one flawed system for another flawed system.
The flaws are different, but both are flawed.
If we're honest and say that a flaw is why we don't listen to/trust/have faith in one of the above, then we should recognize that all vessels of God's Truth are flawed.
From there, it becomes an issue of faith. I cannot fault someone for not putting their faith in organized religion. There is logic to that position. But if I'm going to harp on the flaws of organized religion, I should also point out the flaws of individualism and humanism, because they have giant flaws too. Of a different stripe and nature, but big glaring flaws none the less.
