I don't like being confused with that New-Age stuff.

Thanks again fschmidt. I've said it before, but this forum really brings some of the most intelligent minds together.

Well I do go by Ignostic sometimes, but people always confuse that with Agnostic.

Thank you Jester. In fact in my El Paso Act Biblically meetup, there is a woman who had rejected Christianity who was impressed by this post and is now interested in acting biblically. I am doing what I can.

Okay, so I'm reading the Human Evolution Post on Act Biblically right now. I came to the same conclusions from my own research. Specifically I read this book by F.A. Hayek, The Fatal Conceit:



It's another pretty obscure book, even among Hayek's work and Right-Wing/Libertarian circles. The title "Errors of Socialism" is perhaps a bit misleading. The book touches upon evolutionary theory and the development of culture as well as population growth, linguistics, and religion. It basically holds the same views put forth in Act Biblically. It's a short book, only like 200 pages, but very dense. There's no wasted space. In the back of the book there is an index of many other books that influenced its writing, so it may be a good source for you to find further support. The Fatal Conceit is basically what happens when a genius level intellect is near death and tries to use his entire lifetime of knowledge to make one final argument.

You read Unwin and I read Hayek, but we both wound up in the same place.

Thanks abcdavid01, I will read this soon. Right now I am studying psychopathy. I have a theory that the mechanism behind psychopathy and feminism are the same. I need a few weeks to research this and then I will move on to other books including Hayek's.

That doesn't make any f***ing sense. How are you going pray to something you don't believe in? Most retarded thing ever.
