Well, that's how they graduated out of the cult phase, yes.
They get a free pass in the way that their beliefs without evidence are given respect many who have beliefs without evidence wouldn't get just because it's a "religion".
The popularity of the opinion isn't really evidence for its legitimacy.
Just becasue it's a religion?! Why do you want to demean faith like that? Muslims face death if they leave it's not a choice of opnions for them. This is serious business and you dismiss it like that?
For people in their faith many have had all the proff they need. For others nothing is enough to prove God is real. For me I just know he is, that's what makes sense to me.
Each to their own, you don't beleive? Okay so you don't beleive, I don't have a problem with that.
The popularity of who's opnion? I bet if three doctors told you the same thing was their opnion you'd take note, it wouldn't be evidence but you'd assume they'd concidered their opnion carefully. Well, religious people (who had the choice) considered very carefully, this is their life afterall.
