If you don't want to, then you don't have to believe me
No pretense here: I freely admit I'm writing this in direct response to the "celestial wolves" thread. I want to make sure what I'm trying to say over there is clear, and it's easier for me to clarify it here.
You don't have to believe what I believe. I have always been the first to admit that my beliefs are ridiculous, and you're more than welcome to agree. And I do think the guy this topic was originally about, spouting things about celestial wolves, was likely a troll. But there is a major difference between disagreeing with someone's beliefs and saying that those beliefs are wrong.
That being the case, I definitely have trouble with this idea that no beliefs that can't be proven are ok. Is that an official policy here now? It's coming from a staff member so I have to assume it is.
And again, because if I don't keep repeating this someone is going to ignore or forget that I said it: I'm OK with people challenging my beliefs. What I'm not ok with is people saying that my beliefs are not valid because I can't prove them. If I wanted to be on a forum with that policy, I would not be here. I imagine many of us would not be here. I thought the whole point of this site was to let us discuss things that the public at large would call b.s.
Let's see how this plays out. If the site's policy is that it's OK to ridicule beliefs that can't be proven by science, consider this my goodbye. If not, I'll stick around.
