  1. I love Qualia Soup. The psychic werewalrus bit made me laugh!

    If I were to say that I saw little forest elves while walking through the woods one day, no Christian would believe me, and would probably demand evidence. If I were to make a scientific claim, they would also expect me to back that up with evidence. But if they say they speak to Jesus each night and he answers them, or that he helps them through difficult times, or any other absurd claim, I am expected to believe them; and if I demand evidence, I am accused of being unreasonable. Christians have been getting away with this double standard for much too long.
