Subject: Re: CSICOP's Religious War Against The Unholy

I feel compelled to make a comment regarding CSICOP's recent
press release.  For those who don't already know, CSICOP is a
fundamentalist religious organization, not at all unlike other
popular religions such as Mormonism, Catholicism, Judaism,
Jehovah's Witnesses, and so forth.  While the hypocrisy of
Christians is always amusing to watch, the unmitigated gall of
the cult followers of the CSICOP movement can be somewhat
irritating.

The distinction is simply that most religions at least have the
good sense to wrap their dogma in terms of "faith", while the
CSICOP brethren present their litany of material reductionism
under the guise of reason and rationality.  Nothing could be
further from the truth, of course, since it appears that no
CSICOP member seems to have ever truly managed to grasp the
concept of relativism.

Reality assimilation is a highly personal thing, between the
consciousness of an observer/experiencer of Universe and his,
her, or it's central nervous system.  That CSICOP as a group
seems committed to dictate consensus reality in some sort of
totalitarian way, waging an ideological battle against anyone who
dares experience a touch of reality outside of their strict rule,
is no more or less disconcerting than any other inquisition in
human history.
