I admit I jumped the gun a bit but I felt the tone was starting to go downhill and I wanted people to think a little before they posted here.

I dont mind having my belief challenged, I dont mind it being questioned. I welcome it. But

for example is not questioning my faith, thats ridiculing me. There seems to be a double standard applied to these sort of discussions, if I talk about my faith, Im jamming it down peoples throat - people dont mind me being religious but Im not aloud to talk about it. Yet if you have no faith, its a free for all, Athiest feel its a given right to jam their convictions where ever they please.

Again, I know I jumped the gun, but Ive seen where these conversations lead.
