What I can't figure out is why you don't believe in fairies. If you're going to choose to believe anything, they should surely be first on the list?[/b]
fundies believe that if one page of the bible is proven false, the whole bible must therefore be false.
you believe that if i choose to believe in god, i am required by law and human nature and the laws of the universe to believe in santa claus, dragons, harry potter, flat earth, faeries and republicans.
why must everything be black or white? you construct the worse a theist can be, and then i am supposed to adhere to that image.
and while we are on the subject, why should i believe in faeries? they turn people into donkeys, steal the milk from our cows and are asholes.
