That's a cop out and you know it. You believe religion is manmade and you gave your reasons but you know full well, that's not the absolute truth just because you don't believe in it. It was very simple as I see it.
When you don't understand something that's beyond you, you either resort to personal insults or you just dismiss it saying you don't understand it. I am noticing a pattern here. I am not going to continue with this anymore.
If you're so open to everything why are you getting so het up that Joe and Mark don't believe in God. You are confusing and make everything complicated to read.
Yes Joe believes religion is man-made. That is his view. He knows that he can't prove that as an absolute truth but he believes that it's the absolute truth. There, that's settled. Please stop going round in circles.
No, I don't see it at all. Because how would you even know whether you have something in common with that person, when you are not even going to get to know that person, because you’ve already decided your mind on it? You are already having problems getting past the notion that one is Muslim. You know something? I should feel really great that you are even speaking to me. Thank you, Mark.
This coming from the person who said...
I don't like religion at all. Am a free spirit. Rules and boundaries are not for me. I tend not to hang out with people who are a bit too religious. It could just about anyone from any religion.
So your accusing Mark of not giving this hypothetical Muslim woman a chance of dating him yet you say yourself that you try not to hang out with anyone whose a bit too religious- despite the fact that when not talking about their beliefs you could have a lot in common. The word hypocritical comes to mind.
