"  I'm not saying you're incorrect, but what makes humans special? You are making a dichotomy between "higher ordered" animals and "lesser"(?) animals, what is this distinction based upon? Is it the ability to…"

Aha hello there, I see you made a thread just line mine long time ago (and probably it was quite old so it was filtered away over time which then went unnoticed by me), but I get the impression we are of a similar stance regarding the atheism/agnoticism options under your profile edit.

What I really wanted to say is that I find the opposition a little sad and most of all, a little hypocritical for at on the one hand saying that they don't want other people here, but at the same time allowing them as long they behave in a civil manner.

I for one, don't find the reasons behind that sort of thinking. While I certainly am aware of this place after all being called The Atheist Nexus, should we take it literary? I at least for one, don't find myself agreeing with this sort of more militant approach. Maybe it's because I live in such a country where actual theists barely ever seriously bother me in my everday life.

On a sidenote, this isn't the first time our views have reconciled :)
