>How the hell can you believe this stuff? Well, how in blazes can you *not*? :-) Now, you will notice that I do *not* accuse you of being "too scared of your own potential," "a rabid fundie," or even an "EvilSupressivePerson." Merely a less-than-tolerant/polite cynic. Is it wrong for people to believe in "Really Neat Powers" <tm> as being accessable in this life as opposed to Heaven/Val Halla/Hades in the next? Please, unless you have some definitive proof that I'm wrong, leave me my delusions if they make me happy. 'Tis mean-spirited to do otherwise.
