I wonder why so many believers are total nutters?

Not all people with religious beliefs are nutters - in fact very few of them are - just the real fundies. But my, we've got one here.

And someday when people have failed without God, the secular humanists will blame the behavior of the humans in bringing about the tough times rather than the idea that it is a spiritual war and must happen.

Spiritual war my arse. Must happen, bollox. You guys actually want it to happen.

Yeah I have nutty beliefs. If God didn't exist and if there were no deceiving spirits, your position would be most rational.

You have no idea how nutty this sounds. If you did, you'd be embarrassed to say it.
