The "scientists" that run the YEC heist are all criminals, to put it bluntly.”
“Granted, god and science can go together. I got my engineering degree
at a very good catholic college. I was taught pure science there, all god fearing folks.”

Then the same day, you wrote:

“…we are a rare bunch. Buddhists see life as suffering.
When I was completely ignorant of Buddhism,
I thought that meant they were pessimists.
It was the other way around, though.”
“If you can't trust me, you are not going to
be able to find anyone you can trust. I can't lie.
Its a defect in my psyche. Can't trust me, I'm sorry for you.”

I gather from the above that
1) a) you hate YEC
b) “You never said that you hated any person who tries
to take advantage of another person by abusing the concept of god.
YEC is one of these things.”
2) You cannot lie.
3) You are a Buddhist.
4) You feel that Catholics have the real God.
5) You feel that if I can't trust an anonymous person with these opinions, there is nobody I can trust.

So, you’re a Buddhist who believes in God? That is an excellent topic.

I don’t know much about Catholic Buddhists.
