well, steve, when you call someone else's belief system a "narrow minded superstition", wouldn't you say that from the other person's point-of-view you are starting a theological discussion?

If someone has red hair and I say "You have red hair," I'm not starting a discussion, only making an observation. Either way, I wasn't trying to debate his theology, I was dismissing it because it was entirely inappropriate for this forum both in its content, and perhaps more importantly, its tone.

The fact that I find his beliefs entirely offensive, and to quote Campbell McGrath, "a nail in the coffin of human aspiration," is another point entirely.

And I understand the point about Star Wars, but come on, I don't let my enjoyment of a movie dictate my beliefs about reality. When the Matrix came out, I liked it, but I didn't decide that I was living in a computer as a result. I can even love Bach's sacred music without believing in God.
