Just a quick note, that's absolutely fine as long as you're prepared to accept that other people might not think that. I.e they might believe something else with every fiber of their being. Be it that they are ÃsatrÃºar and worship the old norse gods or buddist or muslim or simply believe that strongly that there is no god or gods at all.
You'll definately think they're wrong since religious beliefs like that are usually mutually exclusive but they'll equally strongly think that you're wrong so basically forcing your worldview on others (and this goes in all directions) is what usually gets people's hackles up.
This is NOT especially aimed at you even though I'm quoting the bit you said there. You've not been particularly bad although there have been a few posts by other posters that really irritated me with their lack of even acknowledging that other people will have a different point of view from them so tying everything back to the christian god is counter productive in a lot of argumets/discussions.
I was actually close to arguing for the Flying Spagetti Monster god with equally strong conviction and vocabulary but decided against it. Heh..
