Just because a person is babbling on about how they're the true messiah, seeing blood and unseen spirits in the room, while drawing upside down crosses on the walls with their poo does not mean they are possessed by a goddamn demon - it's called schizophrenia. (Or perhaps they're high on PCP - there's a reason every psych patient gets a drug screen.) They get drugs like haldol and geodon, and then whaddya know - they stop hearing voices and playing with their poo. Dodgy

Christians believe in demons and angels. Muslims, too, I believe. (Jinn, anyway.)

Some do, some don't.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

You sound like a sanctimonious cunt. I doubt anyone will listen to you.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

No, he (Q) certainly won't listen to this one. Laramie is a Roman Catholic, and to many Protestants, Catholics are worse than atheists. Q has no use for Catholics.

Atheists can believe in some shit. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in gods. Atheists aren't free of believing some crazy shit. The difference is that atheists never claim their beliefs as absolute truths. Religions claim their dogmas to be absolute truths without any evidence.
