    I agree. But you seem to be not connecting some dots at the end there.
    Since you didn't specify those dots, I have to assume this was just a BS statement... either that or you assume I am a mind reader. I'm not.

    I'm agnostic, and consider that to be the most sensible perspective on most religious questions.
