32. Nobody's arguing except you,
and there's no call for rudeness.

In fact, I was asked to clarify my opinion, and so I did. That does seem to have troubled you and brought forth a rather viscous stream of blather. You don't even understand the difference between faith and religion, and isn't it odd that you're the first person to bring up "religion," which is irrelevant to this discussion.

You're "good at it," it seems - blather, that is. And don't take that as a personal affront - just a simple statement of fact..............
