brett dishler replied to Amelia's discussion 'Do you think Theists are "stupid"?'
"I don't necessarily think theists are stupid, as much as they are more naive. They don't take the time to realize how religion hides them from reality. They choose to live on in their blindness because its usually all they've ever…"
