when it all comes down to proof of existence, and there is none- why the outright disregard for others beliefs in defense of your own? at the cost of sounding ignorant, it is just that (ignorance) which upsets me. not that others believe in what they do, or believe that they are right, but that their ignorance is dangerous to society.
i have to be extremely tolerant in my personal life, for the sake of maintaining ties to my blood relations. however, i also issue respect for others belief out of the sense of mutual regard which i assume exists between sane, rational people. it appears that being sane, rational, and tolerant are not possible when ignorance is in the equation.
yet those on the other side of the fence constantly accuse non believers of 'attacking' their beliefs system. how is that possible when, for the most part, they sit quietly until directly provoked? *sigh* mind boggling...

Being that I am from a mostly pentecostal area of the country, People around here believe more of what other people have told them, rather than going out and doing research to find out what they actually believe on their own. I've lost quite a few friends because they asked me for my opinion and didn't agree with me.(I did not need these people anyway) I am a proud agnostic with my own set of beliefs. But I am not one to throw my opinions off on other people unless asked directly. I know most of my friends and family believe different than me, to me that is fine, how I expect things to be. But usually when people go out of their way to ask me what I think they get offended by my answers, this I do not understand.
