"Hey there skeptics, atheists and scientists, why the hell waste your time having these pointless discussions with all these religious maniacs that cannot be saved anyway (and we know they can't)... Instead you should be trying to prevent more people (children) from falling into this religious trap! It's the future that we should be thinking about, not the now... Don't you realize that you are talking to walls..."

I don't think I'm talking to walls. Nothing's wrong with argumentation, lots of ideas are created that way. My own view has been modified since I first submitted my 1st post to this forum. I used to believe that if God existed, he'd be an insufferable sadist. But I've come to realize that God could have done alot worse by removing happiness, friendship, learning and exploring, etc, if he really exists. You see, skepticism doesn't mean being closed to all other ideas. It means carefully examining all evidence before you jump on the bandwagon. So, I would then conclude that all forumeers on this forum, are skeptics in this sense. Besides a little friendly debating is fun, wouldn't you agree?
