I want to join Dr. Snubnose in apologizing to the pea-brained inbred mouth-breathers whose endless streams of strawmen, non-sequiturs, insults, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh screw it - nevermind.

Our reason is quite satisfied, in 999 cases out of every 1000 of us, if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized by someone else. Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.
- William James, from The Will to Believe, a guest lecture at Yale University in 1897
