Same place as always: in your pants.

Nah: i'm only joking. :)
It wasn't a joke, Alejandro: I think that islam retards you (not you specifically, you understand - whoever is one, I mean).

Oh, ok then. That may be the cause roughly half the world population is retarded. And I include half of my family there as well then. As well as some board members in here. Thank you for your kind words. They are highly appreciated.

If you want to have a conversation the respective merits or deficiencies of various religions (or of religion in general, oh you don't want to get me started) would you please start a separate thread?

Only half?! You sir are an optimist!

I have offended the religious? I should perhaps tread carefully, then: I know what means they have recourse to when offended by the ideas or words of others; I will certainly watch my back from now on.

I think it is very clear that religious belief retards those who partake in it - indeed, the guilty parties even boast of it: many a time I have heard them speak of the immutability of their bigotry on the grounds that a 'god' sets it forth as an eternal truth.
When this 'god' has decreed such retarded notions as: homosexuals are evil; women are inferior to men; and non-human animals exist for the use of man; and the sun revolves around the earth, it prevents the 'believer' from progressing - in other words: it retards their progress - and gives rise to instances of gross cruelty towards progressives, such as that meted out to Galileo Galilei.
The effect this persecution of a progressive man had on Descartes, for example, is another excellent case of religion retarding those who maintain it, as social and intellectual progress is thus retarded. I could go on and on.

Religion is just prejudice with 'divine authority': you have no more right to such prejudice than a racist, or a Nazi does, and only convention sees you (again: not you specifically) get away with your horrors.

Janet: I hope that you forgive me this one post; i've said my peace.

I do not see this discussion going anywhere positive. Thread closed.
