It seems to me that they are opposed to the idea of a God who desires relationship with us, if even exists at all.

but to the way you have to impose your way of thinking without nuances.

Nuance is difficult in a text-only setting. MFM said I convey my position as though it’s objective fact. I’m not trying to convert anybody here, but I am devout and admittedly generally opinionated. If I come off as though my position is fact it is because, in the case of God, I treat it as fact for my own self. I admittedly am stubbornly unwilling to entertain the notion that God does not exist or that He cares about me. Whether that’s a quality or a failing is matter of debate I suppose, but it is who I am. Frink kind of called me out for being zero percent uncertain, but I don’t know what to say about that other than I choose to not be uncertain. I hold steadfast to my belief.

Frink also says my position, that the Christian God exists, suggests itself as superior given the underlying consequence for believing otherwise—but I do get the feeling that he himself feels his position is superior in that I’m very likely gullible, foolish, and/or wasting my time focusing on my beliefs since he holds them to be false. That is, I think both positions think themselves superior in their own way.

But I do not look down my nose at him, or any of you, for not believing what I do.
