But I never said that just because a theist acted rationally that everything they do, including their belief in G-d is rational.
Obviously you do not really read what I write. I don't consider Christianity as a rational conclusion. I don't even consider belief or faith in G-d as relevant!
What I was writing was the some people, theists and atheists both, are often so two-dimensional that they believe things can only be one way or another. The comment on the priest who formulated the expansion model was contrasted with the claim that atheists can't have an interest in transcendent things like meditation or yoga.
The point, which is apparently lost on some, is that being an atheist or a theist doesn't mean you are entirely rational or irrational, totally spiritual or unspiritual.
But I assume that is asking too much for some people. Some religious people still believe that if you are an atheist then you must be judged adversely and some atheists obviously believe the same about theists.
This is called "ambiguity intolerance" and it is an earmark of JW behavior. People are a combination of things, not just one thing or another. I am a scientist and definitely know that life came about through evolution, I wrote above that I don't believe I intuition, and I am a practicing Jew. I also don't see any value in "belief" in G-d but I am neither atheist or agnostic. Apparently some in the Western world either won't grasp this, cannot, and just want to hate anything connected to G-d.
