    Um, yeah, exactly... no eyes, lots of teeth, and buckets of flesh-eating saliva.

    no eyes: check
    where eyes 'should be' the surface is:

    i dunno about that, they've got torsos, heads, and limbs in generally the right spots. So they're still "humanoid" and seem intelligent... just operating on some style of intelligence we don't understand.

    Plus they gestate inside human hosts and tear their way out during the birthing process, killing the host. That creeps me out pretty bad, taking an affirmation of life and turning it parasitical (the scene in The Dark Tower Book 7 where Mordred comes out, turns into a spider, and eats his mom while she's suckling him freaks me out just as bad).

    I mean, come on -- doesn't that feel wrong?

    look on the bright side, this was way more entertaining and we talked about REAL issues with REAL effects in our lives rather than as before, self evident things only demented parrots keep denying

    Pascal's wager is a terrible reason to believe in a religion; the real reason for a rational person to believe in a religion is if doing so increases their happiness in this life (which I strongly suspect is the case for most people).

    Religion (unfortunately) is better suited to such a utilitarian purpose than individualized/unorganized metaphysical beliefs such as Deism because the latter lack a system of positive/negative reinforcement and (most importantly) mental habituation (i.e. self-imposed brainwashing); maintaining faith without these things actually requires a far higher capacity for faith (i.e. hope with a degree of certainty) than believing in an organized religion.

    For the above reasons, I get annoyed at militant atheists just as much as I get annoyed at religious enthusiasts; they are both attempting to impose what works for them onto people whose beliefs do not greatly threaten others, and who would be ill-served adopting a different belief system.

    People who have with a very low tolerance for cognitive dissonance coupled with strong metaphysical wants that have no rational substitution are pretty much fucked. Pass the beer, please.
