Devotion For What
You seem to have a lot of anger and intolerance and devotion for something which you claim does not exist.
I do not have anger and intolerance for anything imaginary. This is the mistake Christians always make. Why would I bother trying to fight something that is just make-believe? No, I go after the people with the belief. They exist. They are my target. But I do not hate the majority of them. It is the fundamentalists, the powerful Mafia leaders of Christianity that I despise. They want to force their way on everyone. They want a theocracy despite the constitution. They want America to be Iran. And I will die fighting that.
Live and let live, and if believing in UFO's makes you a happier person, then that alone is a positive thing in that belief.
Belief in UFOs is a benign belief. No wars have been started over UFOs. No blood has been spilled over UFOs. There has never been a UFO crusade where different faiths of UFO believers battled to the death. No inquisitions, no witch-hunts, no holocausts. No one is trying to force UFO belief on innocent children who know no better. There is nothing in the constitution about Separations of Aliens and State. And no one gets discriminated against for disbelief in this case. Do you see how your analogy totally falls apart under scrutiny?
"Christians refer to the following as mythological figures: Hercules, Osiris, Bacchus, Mithra, Hermes, Prometheus, Perseus, and Horus. All are pre-Christian sun gods and yet all allegedly had gods for fathers and virgins for mothers; had their births announced by stars and celestial music; were born on the solstice around December 25th; had tyrants try to kill them in their infancy; met with violent deaths; and rose from the dead. Moreover, nearly all were worshipped by 'wise men' and were alleged to have fasted forty days."
