    I see. So you are less narcissistic than me. That's fine.

    Some of us haven't had good experiences with religious people, and are wont to assume that they're all just arbitrary, irrational, self-righteous, imposing, and irritating. Which means we look for those qualities in religious people, and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    And once you get used to thinking of a group of people like this, it's hard to break the habit and rationalizations for the habit.

    Sorry if we jumped on you without provocation, then.

    I know you didn't say that and I didn't imply that you said it. I guess this is just a sensitive issue that can easily lead to misunderstanding.

    To clarify what I mean, it's that while the question may be something as simple as "Do you believe in a God?" and seems like a yes/no question, there are actually more than just those two responses.

    Well.... I fully agree with you here. We could even imagine a very complete poll detailling several possible opinions, including deism, true agnosticism, pantheism, ignosticism, passive (practical) atheism, assertoric atheism, materialistic atheism, scientism... and so on, and so on.

    Things are not exploding away from each other, rather it is space that is expanding.

    And if there was a big bang it would have started from a point. However wherever you stand in the universe, it appears the big band started from there.

    Believing in the big bang is exactly the same as believing the Sun goes round the Earth - they are both intuitive and both put us at the centre of the universe. And they both appeal to our narcissism and solipsism.

    So the big bang is entirely a fraud.

    And this fraud has become so popular because it confirms the religious view of a Creator - for if there was a big bang, there must have been a Creator to light the fuse and whoop! here we are.

    And the gullible believe in the big bang for the same reason they believe in MBTI - because it suits their preconceptions.

    Gosh, the big bang and MBTI seem so intuitive. But the problem is that apart from the tiny part of the universe we inhabit, the rest of the universe, the very small and the very big, is counter-intuitive.

    The intuitive have never cottoned on to this and in their desperation are taken in by any nostrum that comes along.

    This is only true assuming that none of them are correct, I think. If there is a God, then trying to get people on his side is actually not destructive, it's just impossible to tell who's destructive and who isn't, which is why the debate will never die.

    This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend, I will start a new thread about it...

    This is exactly why you were paged. I knew you'd come through.

    Merci!

    You'll never create a poll that has enough options to detail my beliefs fully.
