    ...feel that they have to defend their ridiculous invisible man theories? If you feel like believing in ghosts fine, but why do you get so bent out of shape trying to convert everyone else?

    Why do (most) people who don't believe in God tend to belittle, make fun of and otherwise annoy people who do believe?

    What difference should it make to them if someone chooses to believe in "ghosts"?

    Why keep bringing it up?

    Why not just let it drop and ignore it?

    Why try to convince believers not to believe? :eusa_eh:

    You're the one currently sounding like you have an ax to grind.

    This question goes both ways.
    Why are you always trying to convince us there's nothing to God? What's the big deal if we believe and you don't?
    We don't "defend" it, we try to let people know about it. I agree, some people go quite a bit overboard trying to "push" their religion on others. If someone doesn't want to hear it, that's fine with me. I"ll leave them alone. But i've done my part to let them know i do believe and i'd be glad to share it with them.

    I'm saying: show us some proof or stfu. People want real proof, like with WMD. It's easy to find simpletons who will believe anything right away, but it's the others that you are always trying to convert, and with reason too, because to validate your point, you'd need to have at least SOME intelligent people on your side.
