Let it go mate, its a very poor analogy.

 

Not worth wasting our time on.

I think you can disagree with him, as strongly as you wish, but I don't think it's bigotry at all for him to make the statement. I think claims about the supernatural are apt examples of where the "burden of proof" lies - it is with the claimant not the skeptic.
You may say that his statement was too general, and you might be right. But the burden of proof is correctly placed with the religious.
Naturally there are many reasons people have faith, and many of those reasons are not related to claims & evidence, but tied to tradition, etc

Look up the definition of bigotry

 

"intolerance towards those who hold different opinions from oneself"

 

He uses the example of religion to compare to something that we all know is placebo (HOT).

 

Direct inference = religion (or someone's faith) is therefore also placebo / fakery / call if what you will.

 

He didn't need to make that sort of comparison.  It was made intentionally.

Suggest we comment no further on this.  I asked Amos to have a look at removing the post and all subsequent posts.  I apologise - as it's what I should have done originally rather than commenting.

 

Then you guys can go back to dissecting the HOT.

*pfft* Billion dollars? How 'bout infinity dollars? (Complete with irrefutable screenshot proof! But seriously, that link is one of the funniest I've seen, and I'm sure plenty people here would get a good laugh out of it.)
