There is this stupid materialistic ideal now where we MUST have something NAILED to a table to believe in it. What of love???? I believe in the big bang, evolution, multiverse yesterday, tomorrow, my great great grandfather, my mind, my thoughts, you, Australia ---and I can't see any of them!!! Why should it be that the TOE (theory of everything) must be something we can fit under a microscope!
I have to think that it's very natural for us to ponder extraordinary supernatural beings and occurrences in our universe. However, to 'believe' in such seems akin to lying to ones self.
The concept of faith seems like a disclaimer to me.

You believe the most valid view is some one who advocates using emotions to form beliefs over reasoning and evidence? Shall I show the incredible stupidity of such a claim or are you going to admit that you only like what he stated because it was an attempt to support your own ignorant view?
Religion is poison because it asks us to give up our most precious faculty, which is that of reason, and to believe things without evidence. It then asks us to respect this, which it calls faith. - Christopher Hitchens
