Well, it fooled you.  Don't blame the messenger for pointing that out.
Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons. --Michael Shermer

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice.  --Sir James George Frazer

The truth hurts doesn't it.
The whole point of science is that most of it is uncertain. That's why science is exciting--because we don't know. Science is all about things we don't understand. The public, of course, imagines science is just a set of facts. But it's not.  Freeman Dyson

I find nothing wrong with the letter "U"... it seems just fine to me, Christians may say that since it isn't straight it is wrong, but that's not something I do...

I find it odd that you capitalize words in anger, but can't take the time to capitalize proper nouns and the pronoun "I"

It only hurts for a little while, then you feel SOOOO GOOOOD to know the truth and not be subjugated to a bunch of tales (lies) from the bronze age, describing a god that is mean, cold-hearted and makes no logical sense.
"All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."

I'm not sure why it should concern me whether someone is insulted/ offended or not.

Religion, religious attitudes, and the people who exploit them for their own ends are directly harmful to society.  The same can't be said for you having your feelings hurt.
