Focus on the message, not the messenger. What's slightly annoying are people like you that try to keep an air of being intellectual than you make fallacious errors in logic because of your bias.

Atheists are the most arrogant people you will ever come across. The OP doesn't know what the hell he is talking about

All Atheists generalize the behaviour and beliefs of religious people.

Everyone in the universe is naive.

I have never met two theists who were exactly alike. Everyone has their own personalized beliefs and subtle disagreements about what "God" is and what its intentions are even if they share the same religion. It all comes off as being arbitrary selections based on who knows what. Is it based on what "sounds good"? Or on what "feels right within"?

There's such a wide array. Perhaps there is a god, but the only sensible form of theism I can see is that it's a god that doesn't care about being believed in and certainly wouldn't punish or reward based on who makes the right selection about which door it's hiding behind.

It's not so much a matter of intellect as I hyperbolically make it seem. It's more an issue of plain common sense.

What exactly was your point though? Did you have a question, this is kind of how you get the ball rolling. All you've done is made a few broad statements about religious people in general. Do you at least have a specific point we can discuss?

No, clearly not. First of all, most major christian religions accept evolution as compatible with their belief. second, there is no belief in science. Science is the formation of falsifiable explanations of observable (i.e. Natural) phenomenon (which is why it can be compatible with your belief in the supernatural). The whole point is that scientific explanations arent set in stone. They are subject to revision when they fail to explain the patterns in the data. which is why they have been so robust and created almost everything you use on a daily basis (F1 hybrid food plants, computers, combustion engines, modern medicine, etc.) All of these things are built upon the scientific method as an approach to understand our world.
