	You really are not listening t what I say. After all my
 arguments about compatibility, the only thing you come up is this
 ludicrous idea about me not attaching a Depends line? I fail to see
 the point of continuing this debate if that is the case.

	Actually, even the fact you came up with such a (IMHO) petty
 reason speaks volumes.
 All religions have in common the periodical childlike surrender to a
 Provider or providers who dispense earthly fortune as well as
 spiritual health; some demonstrations of man's smallness by means of
 reduced posture and humble gesture, the admission in prayer and song
 of misdeeds, of misthoughts, and of evil intentions; fervent appeal
 for inner uni- fication by divine guidance; and finally, the insight
 that individual trust must become part of the ritual practice of man,
 and must become a sign of trustworthiness in the
 community. psychologist Erik Erikson
