Only the self righteous think they can decide what people should and should not believe.
“I would defend the liberty of consenting adult creationists to practice whatever intellectual perversions they like in the privacy of their own homes; but it is also necessary to protect the young and innocent.”~ Arthur C. Clarke

“We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.”~ H. L. Mencken

“Secularists are often wrongly accused of trying to purge religious ideals from public discourse. We simply want to deny them public sponsorship.”~ Wendy Kaminer

Life is brief and so far no one has reported on what occurs after we die.

There is a wish for life after death.

You're 100 percent correct. The religious nuts who decide that everyone believe in God are indeed self righteous.

, on the other hand, will only decide what

I

will believe.
Two uses of "I".:-)

We really don't care what you believe!

I would agree with you but then we'd both be wrong. You're not challenging the validity of extrasensory perception by attempting to diminish the significance of these events. You are creating obstacles for yourself - webs of assumptions that will prevent you from opening the inner door that leads to the evidence you seek. Don't look to science for assistance. Since it refuses to consider the question of awareized consciousness in any of its calculations, it can't even begin to validate extrasensory experiences. Fortunately, the beauty of self-evident subjective experience is that its meaning is not dependent on the corroboration of science.
Intellectual freedom requires the presence of alternative thoughts. The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity, but the one that "removes" the awareness of other possibilities. Think about it.
But I'm saying there is no significance to these events.

How about scientists who support the idea of Intelligent Design, are they also pompous dolts in your narrow minded world of bigoted opinions?
"Intelligent Design" is just a euphemism for creationism.

Life is brief, far to brief to waste it on unproven fanciful notions such as god/s because living under such delusions prevents people from reaching their full potential and that is the saddest thing of all when it comes to the imaginary friend you call God.

If you are right, and God doesn't exist that would explain why the world is so screwed up!

You can say it, but saying it doesn't make it true.

Then why do you continue to be self centered and demonstrate that you don't care about other people?

Easier to care about those who are not self centered?

You are assuming that science has all the facts. If it did, it would be God.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 64,160 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.
