  • Valid point. I dont' think it's rude or nasty. I think it's using the listener's belief to help the listener understand the speaker's belief. Love it.

  • I think its a way to help put another persons belief into perspective. I don't think its rude, I think it is informative.

  • I take it to mean that when you understand why you don't believe Zeus exists, then you'll understand why we don't believe the Christian god exists.

  • Stephen Roberts. Love that quote. I totally agree. And let's see if we can help the christians understand. When you understand why you dismiss the existence of other gods (Zeus, Thor, Athena, Frigga, etc) you will understand why I dismiss yours. (God. Or as you like to say One true god.) You believe in one god, I believe in one less which is zero. It's not that hard people really. And no not rude or inaccurate as anon. stated.

  • I fail to see how it's nasty and rude. I've read it and re-read it over and over. I just don't see it.
