Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Your question Keith Dave, please explain how anyone can be a Christian and not believe in God.

My reply I know people who class themselves as christians on official documentation, such as the census, because that is what they were brought up as. Yet they no longer believe in god. I did myself for some time. If you are using the census as an official guide to what religion people are remember that many of them also said they were jedi.

Your response You people choose to believe that a significant number of people would lie on the census about believing or not believing in God, because you do not like the answer.

Who are 'you people'? I assume that includes me? Yes? In which case where did I say a 'significant number' or that they lied? I said I know people, which I do, who put christian because it is what the had always done. No significant numbers, no lies. A few people, including me, for whom old habits die hard.

I answered your question honestly and to the best of my knowledge. If there was anyone who did not like that answer, that was you Keith. You just cannot stand to be proved wrong in anything and will do anything in your power, including changing peoples words (read: lie) to try and 'win'. Sad really but perfectly in character.
