The only time I get irritated and slam people (atheist or believer) is when they claim to know the answers as a matter of fact. It is the reason I identify myself as an agnostic or a version of a Deist. I do not know the answers. I am convinced all religions are man made. To claim to know the thoughts of a creator and threaten billions of people who do not believe as you do is beyond silly. To try to claim you know how this planet was created and state as a matter of fact there is no creator is beyond silly also. There is no doubt in my mind evolution has played a role in what we are now. It does not explain how this all started~
