I read post upon post arguing that 'X is correct because my BIBLE says so'.
Is it not a wee bit frightening to the more rational mind, that one could believe with all of their being in a book written by men, depicting a religious figure, and the one true path to eternity? Does it not strike anyone as odd that Joseph Smith did the same exact thing, and yet mormons are perceived as a cult by the rest of the christian sects?
Or, better yet, that they argue amongst themselves, between denominations, about the legitimacy of their interpretation of the holy book. Yet it is factual knowledge that the discrepancies in text are ENORMOUS errors of literal lingual misinterpretation, and in the realm of communication even a SMALL discrepancy can have a drastic affect on the intended message...
Does it not frighten anyone else that they are capable of believing this, and better yet- defending it? *shudders*

Anyone who can't look at the whole picture and all the perspectives and angles is just ignorant and selfish. If you don't even entertain the possibility that you could be wrong than your convictions are not as sound as you believe. You may think a bridge your good friend built is strong and sound, but your still going to have technicians run test after test before you let people use it.
