This is an emotional hot button with people. I see religion for many as an addiction, and when you threaten one's addiction, beware of the consequences. I try to instill reason memes in other people's thought space, without threatening their religion memes. This is difficult, but often possible.

Speaking of Rand, I saw a new video called the Passion of Ayn Rand. Anyone seen it? I passed it up to get October Sky, which instantly rocketed into my top 10 list of favorite movies ever. spike
