You've got a complete right to your belief system, and as long as you don't try to shove it down my throat, I won't try to shove it down yours. See here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/pol...tml#post307067 For a longer commentary on that.

But if you open a thread on this forum (or anywhere, really) on the subject, expect debate.
I agree, debating in a public forum is completely acceptable. I don't mind at all when people debate facts. Debate over opinion is about as useless as an asshole on your elbow. It begins with the OP (who clearly has no understanding of "atheism").

The problem that I have isn't in the debate. It lies in the overwhelming attitude that those who believe in a "diety" are unable to think rationally, unable to reason. I see no correlation.

I am not going to join this "debate". It is fruitless, and lacking in substance.
