Josh Carroll: "But you refuse to believe in a God who has ultimate power over you. I just wonder whether or not it's a pride issue."
Neal Boyd: "Speaking for myself, I can honestly say that pride plays no part in my lack of belief in a cosmic sky fairy. if anything, the one with pride is the one that believes that an omniscient, supernatural creature created a universe that revolves around humanity, and there's even more pride in the equation when you convince yourself that this being, who would surely have better things to do with his/her time, has set up a system that grants an eternal cosmic toga party (after death) based on how well you stick to the messages written inside an ancient, magical book. In my case, a lack of god belief makes me humble. I know my place in the universe, and I appreciate that that place is very small."
