Wonderful post ^^^
And MorningStar, your attempts to make blind devotion seem moral and numb acceptance seem glorious do nothing for me. There is no reason to believe in a god. There is zero evidence. Zero. So, if one exists it could be an evil abomination as easily as your fairies. Supplicating yourself before the unknown is a gesture of weakness, fear, and immorality, not a grand leap of faith to be cherished and admired.
There is a mile of substance in this thread, a grand refutation of almost every god I have ever encountered, and your rebuttal is that believing in fairies is fun? I grant you that living in a delusional fantasyland of your own creation can be a kick. But it does not compare to unraveling the mysteries of the universe to what degree we can, and exercising our imagination in other, healthy manners.
