Idols of the Tribe

— In light of this, I feel I must make some announcements.
I am not a very good driver.
I am no better than average at getting along with others.
I am about as moral as most people. (Better about some things, worse about others.)
I am not going to heaven.
If I believed in God, it would be because I found it a source of consolation.
My explanations of my behavior are inconsistent with my explanations of other people's behavior.
But I admit it. So I'm more rational than you! (And probably better looking.)
