I am told that because I don't think that the answer given is really an answer but a statement of belief, I am contentious, and worse.

Maybe this sentence is the key to explaining to you why you are a contentious pain in the rear end.

You ask people about their belief, and all they can tell you is what they believe. There are no absolute truths. There are potentially as many answers as individuals with different world views. Yet you insist, unreasonably, that we as a group must give you a uniform and absolute answer.

You also seem to want to learn nothing from the answers that are given, but rather to just keep badgering as if no answer was given.

Or maybe you just enjoy grating on people's nerves....
