Look, I'm interested in truth. I don't see how you can have a conversation about truth when you start playing these games with words. "'Truth' can mean anything, man."

Excuse me? No
The straw atheists who need setting to rights don't seem to be here, if indeed they are anywhere.
I've certainly seen people categorise religious texts under fantasy on this thread, but I don't think anyone's claimed that means the Bible might as well be Freakangels: no right minded person would do, since one is a 3 year old webcomic with a modest online community, the other is a ~2000 year old religious text with millions of followers.
The question is on what categorical level the word "fantasy" (or any other descriptor) unifies fantastical fiction and religious text, and by what common features it does so?
I guess I am devout in my own way, and I thought I was experiencing a bit of intolerance in this thread, and I didn't know if I was the only one who felt that way.I guess I was trying to have it both ways... and I can't. I used to be an atheist. Rachael says I can't be. It's her thread and I'm not going to dispute it.
I do think it's time for me to go.
the idea that other people may be having a type of experience that I'm just not privy to.
