Why are we, as people, supposed to respect opinions or believes which are blatantly wrong? I'm not talking about pure opinions, such as taste (Blue v. Green, metal v. pop), but such utter nonsense as religion (In all forms, including ghosts and unicorns), events at 2012, aliens-are-coming, karma, all that crap. Spend a small amount of time learning about the subject, and it's revealed that there is nothing to suggest these things, and thus they should be regarded as FALSE. And yet, we don't put them in mental hospitals, like we do with most delusional people. Is it simply because they're not dangerous, even though many see nothing wrong with eternal damnation in agony for believing in something else? Is it because there's too many of them? If 10% of a nation would start to worship a can of baked beans, devoting their lives to it, would they not be considered bat-fuck insane? It infuriates me when, if you go and actually confront people on how utterly wrong their believes are, you're closed-minded, a bigot, and a heap of other negative terms. What the hell? If one belief is not insanity, then no belief is insanity, since they all have the same amount of proof, logic, and reason. (None whatsoever.) Sure, you can find support and whatever, but you're still WRONG. No matter how much you want to think that you, your mother, your aunt, your friends, are not completely ignorant of reality, it doesn't make it so. And I have a special dislike to people putting this abomination of thought to a place of serious discussion. Saying that "Hey, here's an interesting possibility that, in theory, could be true." is a good start for an intellectual debate about, say, a teapot floating on the same orbit as earth, at the same speed, exactly on the other side of the sun. Saying that "OMG! There's a teapot copying earth!" is not. Example of this logic: There might be aliens. There probably are aliens, given the amount of planets out there. However, since we have no proof of aliens, our stand must be that there are none. Example the above example without this logic: There are so many planets out there, that there must be aliens. The probability of there being no aliens out there, amongst the billions and billions of planets, is so high, that our stand must be that there are aliens.
