It doesn't take long on the internet, or in real life, to come across this old chestnut:

'Atheists are so full of themselves, thinking they're right all of the time... So much smug certainty, so much confident piss-taking, so much inconsiderate hate-speech I can't help but pray for them! God save me.'

It drives my curiosity, for I am always in a state of mind adamant that the best solution to the paradox is to seek out more truth.
