This reminds me why I also ran from the old religion/politics forum I used to post on, it wsa nothing but theists and atheists flaming each other over how their side was absolutely correct and the other was either wasting their lives or going to hell, not for one moment considering that just maybe, "spirituality" or whatever you want to call it might work differently for different people.
Meh. The majority of people are closed minded, too involved in their own thing to consider something other than their opinion, me often included. Some people are just plain deluded, and its really hard to convince them of that over the internet.
