Whereas most non-believers would pity you. The problem is perspective. I like other non-believers share your aversion, just in the opposite direction.<quoted text>Wow - you really have a talent for assumption. No hatred involved here; more like vague irritation. You see, I was simply expressing how tired I am of seeing post after post of the same old rhetoric from non-believers. And don't try to pin your lack of faith on me - that's something missing in your makeup. Sorry boutcha - but it's certainly your own biz.
I had a really interesting conversation with my pastor recently where I think he nailed down why the gap. Most of the religious view religion from God down. Non-believers look from human up. Different starting points that apparently lead to different ending points.
Both sides, believer and non-believer, need to take a breath and reassess. Apparently, bickering back and forth is getting all of us nowhere. At some point, all of us need to learn how to agree to disagree. My pastor and I came to that conclusion. We both respect each other, but we both have different ideas on God.
