kvinesknows: I was promised a Venn diagram in thread.

Moonfisher: Tarot also belongs in the religion circle. Our church when I was a kid told us that tarot decks were possessed by demons and using them invited the demon into you. The deck I got as a teenager never did anything exciting, so I am dissappoint.
Earguy: Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.[pauses then winks and walks away]
SlothB77: ROLFing? is that like ROTFLMAO?
Loadmaster: Dude, that doesn't even rhyme.
Earguy: Well, I believe in the soul....
Speaker2Animals: God is a concept, by which we measure our pain.
Ambitwistor: That was the very same link that I cited in my original response to you, which shows that acupuncture is NOT more than just a placebo. The estimated effect size is so small that, as the article points out, it "it falls below the minimally accepted threshold for a clinically noticeable reduction in pain. The authors even speculated that it was so low that it could not be distinguished from bias that might result from the difficulty in truly double-blinding acupuncture studies."
TheOmni: There's at least eight things on that diagram that I've never even heard of before. Rolfing? I'm really hoping that's not what I think it is.Glad I'm not the only one:) I'm almost afraid to ask, but what's cupping?
WhippingBoy: I believe the children are our future.Teach them well and let them lead the way.
Farce-Side: I thought we already had this thread.
diaphoresis: I believe 97% of Farkers are clueless, emotionally-driven moron with no concept of anything they haven't been brainwashed to believe.the other 3% are badgered and ridiculed for trying to have intelligent discussions without all the drama... which makes them the dumbest people on Fark for believing they can have such a thing.PROVE ME WRONG!
MBooda: Where's Atheism, the belief that there's no God?
GiantRex: Jubeebee: Why is detox in quackery/psuedoscience? Doesn't drug rehab show a lot of real efficacy?The detox that this diagram includes is not the drug rehab kind (which does show a lot of real efficacy). It's the kind of detox in which people try to rid their bodies of mysterious unnamed "toxins" by dubious methods, usually by buying a blatantly bullshiat product. The product I've heard the most about is a type of pad that you stick on your feet. After you've left the pad on for a while, it turns brown and smelly, and when you remove it the damn thing looks just awful because it "sucked the toxins of of your body" through your feet. Chemical analysis of these pads shows that they are actually simple adhesive pads laced with chemicals that react with oils and bacteria commonly found on feet to cause the brown color and bad smell, which is just for show.

hinten: Fark, where everyone biatches about bad grammar but nobody can state what is actually wrong.
So how do you feel about the phrase "There is no Santa Claus"? Does it provoke you to argue? What do you assume about the person who says it?
Z-clipped: Atheism and agnosticism are not exclusive. See above. Agnosticism is an epistemological position, not a theological one.
I firmly believe in smashing two bricks together
I believe in life after love.
Ambitwistor: willfullyobscure: Dude, it works on horses and rabbits. There are dozens of studies that show it's not a placebo.As I said, that turns out not to be the case. You can find studies that show an effect. You can find many more that don't. That's why people conduct meta-analyses: to see what the total weight of evidence across all the studies shows. And the meta-analyses always show that there isn't any large consistent effect distinguishable from a placebo.The major thing we don't understand about acupuncture is how and why it works.The major thing we don't understand is why people believe it's not a placebo, despite all evidence to the contrary. (Well, we do understand much of that: selective cherry-picking of studies.)
meat0918: Even today, we are constantly amazed at the lengths people will go to in order to manufacture new hoaxes and scams.
MaxxLarge: GeneralJim: MaxxLarge: No gods have ever been real, or will ever be real... Period.And you would prove that statement.... How, exactly?I don't need to. It's BEEN proven via history, biology, astronomy, physics, and a hundred other disciplines.
meanmutton: meanmutton: MaxxLarge: Mythology is just religion plus time. Forever and always, 100% of the time. No gods have ever been real, or will ever be real... Period.That's an amazingly unscientific viewpoint.In case you're wondering, the scientific viewpoint is: No credible evidence has been put forth to lead to a reasonable conclusion that gods exist; thus, we do not accept their existence but are willing to review this conclusion should new evidence be presented.

Ennuipoet: I don't believe in Venn diagrams!Where's your god now?
js34603: I believe in nothing./yes it is exhausting

Rixel: [en.wikifur.com image 500x300]I LOVE GOOGLE!
Satanic_Hamster: I believes that subby is a semi-literate monkey who somehow got access to the internet.
hinten: Psychic Surgery sounds totally legit and I'm looking forward to getting my appendicitis fixed that way.
FloydA: Rolfing is a form of massage that is supposed to "balance" the body and "optimize" muscle use (those terms are not explicitly defined).
Nogrhi: I believe in grammar.
