“If you could reason with religious people…”

I really like that quote. But it isn’t quite true.

Actually, you can reason with religious people- about everything except their religion.

You can explain math to them. You can teach them meteorology. They can learn to program spacecraft trajectories. But where their (and to a lesser extent, others’) religion is concerned, they can not be reasoned with. That is a reason-free zone partitioned off in their brain.

Belief in the government is another religion, as evidenced by this same phenomenon.

It’s still fun to demonstrate this fact by using reason against them and forcing them to show their hand.
