Alright, so either there is a god or there isn't. If there is a god, he has set characteristics. But it IS black-or-white. What pissed me off is when people act like belief is an opinion. "You must respect all opinions about the afterlife and gods". Opinion? How is believing a fairy tale an opinion? If God exists, how is believing that 2 and 2 make 4 an opinion? An example of an opinion: chocolate tastes better than vanilla. Another example of an opinion: gays should not get married. Another one: water is cold.

Existence is black-or-white, and you can't have an opinion about absolutes. Opinions are only about things that can be perceived. Belief when used in a religious sense is used synonymously with opinion. Think about it, what is a culture now? Food, music, dance, government and BELIEF, among other things.

Zach,
I'm getting the impression that you might be.... an Atheist!

For the record, there are no gods. Only deluded people. They should respect one another's delusions, since they are all wrong anyway.
