    That would mean you are just as intolerant as the intolerant radicals. Who the hell cares what other people believe? You control your own life.

    It matters what other believe. What others believe effects my life and yours. This should be basic knowledge for any sentient species.

    I'm sure a lot of gay couples who want to get married would disagree that the beliefs of others don't matter.

    Apologies, I didn't word that correctly. Of course the things one knows informs what one believes. What I meant was, atheism and theism are not claims of knowledge, but claims of belief. Agnosticism and gnosticism are claims of knowledge.

    Small quibble, they're not claims of knowledge, they're claims about the ability to know.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sounds like there are a lot of dicks.

    I disagree, homosexuality is known for non-conformity, to blatantly profess what they believe in without having fear of what others use or think against them, another topic not for this thread, perhaps.

    That's absolutely true. Our beliefs inform our actions. If one believes something irrational, one's actions related to that belief will be irrational. That's why we have people flying airplanes into buildings, blowing up medical clinics and shooting doctors and strapping on explosive vests. Stupid beliefs lead to stupid actions and those actions absolutely affect others.

    Re: Do you believe in God?

    It was a simple question. I said yes.

    Don't know why everybody has to nit-pick it to death. Yes or no.

    No particular diety or theology was mentioned. Whatever you consider your god, or higher power, supreme being, extra-terrestrial, whatever, (IF you consider that at all,) do you believe? Yes or no?

    I begin and end my day in prayer. Can't profess to know for sure who or what I'm prayin' to but I'm prayin' as hard as I can.

    It just works for me. Just sayin'.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"

    Exactly what is dickish about saying "what you believe is unsupported by the evidence"? That's like saying it's dickish for a teacher to teach her students that 1+1 is not equal to 5. It just might hurt someone's feelings!

    Reality is never dickish.
