    yet you don’t find me running around like a dufus asking people to address my unsubstantiated opinions when I offer them.

    Actually, if you do not have a right that your government recognizes, you don't have it regardless of how many gods or goddesses, deities or other world divinities may or may not be on your particular side.

    I'm actually on layaway. In just four more payments I'll own myself free and clear, though.

    Indubitably, I think it removes any intended impact of the statement; but I think in the end that is what the statement means. Regardless of perception, that which exists exists. It doesn't take our recognition of its existence for it to exist.

    I don't think that rights evaporate based on government recognition. Rather the rights exist regardless of government force used against their free exercise.

    That idea seems almost solipsistic.

    You do have a right to exercise attempted self-preservation, just by nature itself. If you do not believe that, then try to commit an act against my survival. It doesn't matter if you believe in God or the devil. Cross the line into my own personal territory, and one of us will exert his right forcefully.
