Oh and just for the record, I'm a gnostic atheist. I was just wondering if you actually had any intellectual honesty in you. It appears not. Have a nice life.
When you accept one thing without evidence, you're more likely to accept more withouth evidence.
Believing things without a good reason can be bad for yourself (losing money on scams, 'snakeoil', etc), for people close to you (parents killing their kids by relying on faith healers) or other people in your country (Mormons voting for proposition 8 in California).
A convenient lie is no substitute for the truth. It would be nice to believe we live forever, or fairies exist at the bottom of the garden, or praying can fix all my lifes ills, but these are not true. At some stage we need to grow up, take accountability for our lives and accept reality, not believe the convenient lie.
