Ahhh here is the crux of where we differ... I cannot prove that unicorns exist, but if someone tells me they are friends with a unicorn, I will not call them delusional. Though I might question them closely if I have reason to believe they are not virginal.
It seems to me that there are different levels of reality and one person's experience or lack thereof need not invalidate another person's experience.
I do not think that you should tolerate being told you are an idiot because you do not believe. Neither do I think you should go around calling those who do believe delusional idiots.
While I agree with the general atheist attitude toward bible thumping, I find the generic lumping of all believers into one group and subsequent dismissal out of hand irksome.
That said, I am truly tickled by most of what I read on these forums.
