    Indeed, it's not like you are going to float away (although it does feel like that).

    I am sure the feel different, yes ...


    Yes, as long as they fit your preconceived notions.


    When's the last time you heard about a false dilemma?


    Excellent atittude you have there.

    Did your parents and/or teachers despise you into accepting science as your religion?


    If delusion makes for "some of our greatest culture" ...


    I see the Dalai Lama is still paying dearly for that slip of the tongue ...


    As long as it is a direction that fits our preconceived notions!

    People would do well to note this...
