I think we should play a couple rounds of "Which Religion is More Stupid?"I'll start: Zoroastrianism vs. Jainismhmm, maybe this is going to need a whole bracket.

I don't know much about Zoroastrianism, it strikes me as slightly mystical to me. I know that Jainists are extreme vegetarians, to the point that they dont' even like to kill plants, and devout sects will only eat fruit that has fallen off the tree, and some of them starve themselves to death in holy martyrdom, so I'd give jainism the early nod.

I would have to say that the five percenters ( the nation of Gods and earths) has to be a 1 seed in this tournament. It's a crazy off shoot of an already crazy religion ( nation of islam ) that doesn't have NoI's strict regulations about getting drunk/stoned, or sexual fidelity. It's popular with blacks who have been to prision, and with east coast hip hop artists, Wu-Tang, Rakim and Nas being some famous 5 percenters ( and I think Busta Rhymes too, but I'm not sure)

For a bracket like this we'd really have to narrow down the perameters (sp?) of what constitutes a religion...other than filling out the $5 paperwork online.

One of the main criteria in being including in the bracket probably needs to be number of followers.I mean, Applewhite and his 38 followers that killed themselves so that they would be transported to the spaceship behind comet Hale-Bopp, is easily a #1 seed... but come on, it's only 39 people.

Yes the Jains take the respect for life thing to an absurd extreme, but at least that is a reasonable value to have in the first place. The zoroastrians are so concerned with protecting their culture that they have basically inbred worse than appalachia.

I think its more like because human child-rearing requires long-term collaboration of the parents, and so those who are bonded are more likely to be successful in that process.

do you believe that love exists? do you believe it is something real that a person can feel or do you believe that people who think they do so are delusional?perhaps: do you love your mother?

I find your question strange. Do people have emotions? Yes.Is love an emotion? Yes.Do people have the emotion "love"? Yes.Is love biochemical in nature just like every other emotion or thought? Yes.

if a scientist were measuring the bio-chemistry of someone experiencing love the scientist would be unable to distinguish where love began. love would be an arbitrary measurement. it would be a theorem unprovable by science. agree?
