But there are some atheists, and some religious folks too... who just cannot stand the thought of anyone thinking differently than they do.

As you and Angel May have proven in this thread.

I have not tried to convert you. I have not questioned your atheism.

But for some reason, you and Angel May view people of faith as affronts to decency and logic. Both of you have insulted and patronized me.

I believe it was YOU who gave two options in your post. Neither of them had anything to do with reality. I merely mentioned a third option. Then *I* was told that I didn't know what I was talking about and was, generally, attacked.

I have no desire to convert you, either. But I do object to having things put into terms that only the religious can profit from. I do not need a god in order to face the world around me. I stand on my own feet - as well as I can. I depend on myself and my brain. I see the world for what it is. Not for what I wish it were.

I'm told that God is a "fact" yet am offered not a single shred of proof. Fine. I don't care. I'm not convinced.

Continue to attack me if you like. I remain an Atheist. I pay my taxes. I vote. I breathe. And most importantly, I think.

I'm sorry if you feel you have been insulted simply because I present a third option to life and living. However, I'm afraid you will have to get over it.
