    As much as you'd like it to be, science =/= magic.
    Since when does the term "created" imply magic?

    My experiences tell me yes, all people who strictly try to follow ancient religions are bigots. I'm curious of other peoples opinions on this.
    Of course they are. One of the primary tenets of all religions is that theirs is the right one while all others are either in error or downright evil.

    This member of the "Left" defines bigot as a person who hates/fears others for irrational reasons, often supported by fallacious notions of history. Yeah, some people who No are bigots but not all who say No are bigots as they have rational reasons for saying No.

    Of course! The essential dialogue is

    Well...I accept YOU...but I disagree with what you choose to do. Mind you...feel free to do it...but no, I dont agree with you that it is ok or 'normal'.

    "Auuuuuuuugh!!!! **** you! I hate you! You are an intolerant bigot! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG HHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!"

    So United Methodist doesn't count as a religion for you?
    No. It is a denomination I'm a Presbyterian

    I like to think that most people try to be good despite being religious.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    No, he says this:

    "One of the primary tenets of all religions is that theirs is the right one while all others are either in error or downright evil."

    What empirical evidence is to support the claim that your religion is right and the other religions are wrong "Logic" man?
