Arguing with God

We need more people like Christopher Hitchens, who would tell people to their face that everything they believe in is irrational and moronic. Alot of people think that being confrontational with the truth is ineffective... the whole "attracting more flies with honey than vinegar" line of thinking. However, without a jolt of reality, people will blissfully ignore carefully worded arguments that remain respectful of their delusions. It's called "confirmation bias" and they only take in facts and data that support their existing point of view.

Of course I believe in tolerance. That's why I tolerate other people's beliefs, but I have no respect for them. Why should I? Why should you? How can you respect a lie?

I used to debate for hours with other people in hopes of "converting" them, but in my YEARS of arguing, researching points, and tiptoeing around certain issues so I don't offend people, I don't think I've actually converted a single person. So I don't try anymore. I let people be deluded because they WANT to be, but when that delusion begins affecting me, I hold no punches and I think people like Hitchens reached that point in their lives way before I did. What I saw as confrontational, arrogant, and just mean.. was actually self-defense. When the beliefs of any group begin legislating and applying rules to MY life, I'll fight it. You see, as an atheist, my beliefs don't limit the lives of other people.. their beliefs want to limit mine.
