    In case anyone has ever wondered about Russell's teapot
    Richard Dawkins on the teapot:

    I often think of Dawkins quote when I see little children rocking incessantly back and forth reciting versus from the Torah or Qur'an.

    Zombies rocking back and forth ... they rock back and forth... day in and day out... rocking and reciting rocking and reciting....

    Oh! Glory be to the Great Tea Pot. Who did take His first sip, a servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Tea fields, to the farthest Tea gardens, whose green-precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our flavorsome green tea: for He is the One Who smellith and tasteith (all things). We gave Him the Book of Chai (Perfect), and made it a Guide to the Children of Tea Leaves, (commanding): "Take not other than Me as (your) Tea Pot" O ye that are sprung from those whom We carried (in the Pot) with the Tea! Verily he was a devotee most grateful....


    Zombies rocking back and forth ... they rock back and forth... day in and day out... rocking and reciting rocking and reciting....

    Wow, they come in all flavors.

    sleepy?

    Imagine a world where thousands of children spend hour upon hour memorizing verses from the Great Tea Pot. They waste their entire youth rocking in a corner memorizing what the Great Tea Pot said - well according to It's Last Prophet - who heard the voices in His head, from an angel, while drinking tea. The Tea Verses were written onto tea napkins, scribbled onto the outside of paper sugar containers, memorized, read in the tea-leaf fortunes -gatherered hundreds of years later, by someone. Unfortunately a great number of Tea Compainions were killed in the Great Tea wars (read-tea versus green tea) and so the versus were collected by the Great Chialif into what we all know to be the only perfect book - Great Book of Chia. Amazingly it's perfect.

    Anyway, I still feel sorry when I see these children wasting their youth day in and day out memorizing these Tea-Prophecies.

    Does everyone agree that Russel's Tea Pot is a logical fallacy? I mean, the possibility does exist that there is a celestial tea pot - right?

    I hope you are spending your life in the pursuit of oil and natural gases rather than rocking over philosophical issues that are a waste of time. :spank:

    S.A.M.,

    What do you think about children spending their entire lives memorizing verses from a Religious book? Be it the 'Great Book of Chai' or Torah or 'The Fundamentals of Thought' or The Qur'an or The Bible or 'John the Baptizer'?

    You know, when you see the children spending their entire youth not learning math or science but memorizing verses from these books. What are your thoughts on that?

    Is it really important for children to use their informative years memorizing 'Xenu's Thoughts of Volcanic A-Bombs' or the 'Scientific Miracles in the Great Book of Chai' or the 'Talking Ants in the Qur'an'?

    Now don't you go back into delusional stuff like thinking abstract concepts that have no meaning except in your head and indoctrinating others. :bugeye:

    Uh by the way, you can give me all that organic matter processed into green abstract stuff called money.

    My point is that people are not that different from other animals.
