RE: We'd better say "no false gods", than "no gods"
Three people go into a restaurant and order a meal, the bill comes to $25. They each give $10, the waiter brings back $5 change. They each take back $1, and leave the remaining $2 for the waiter as a tip.
So, they gave $10 and got $1 back, which means they spent $9 each. OK $9 x 3= $27 + $2 (for the waiter) = $29. What happened to the missing dollar ?

They each gave $9 for a total of $27; $25 went to pay the bill, $2 went to the waiter.

Math is clear, language can obfuscate.

He's also got more written about him than Jesus.

Until there is credible evidence for the supernatural, it is reasonable to think that people who believe in the supernatural are indeed delusional.

1) How can they be delusional, if they say, what belief is the free choice of the free sane human? In the Science it is called "following the hypothesis". Please respect all the people, "friend"! 2) the aggression is wrong, because it is wrong social behavior. Look the whereabouts:

I don't believe you understand what the word 'sane' means. Consider

Prig? How come you afraid to box me in my place? Who of us two are hiding behind the ocean? It is easy to insult, if you are protected by the distance. But it is still the sin.

You come in here with crazy talk, spamming the forum with your tripe, and trying to tell us how to behave.

You are not teaching successfully. You are just bloviating.
