If you're really not a believer . . .

. . .  why does this theme keep recurring?  Thou dost protest till I'm flat bored with it, frankly.

"If something is true, you don't have to believe it, do you?  You don't have to believe that the sky is blue on a cloudless day or that if you run into a fire hydrant at forty miles an hour you will tear the shit out of your car.  It just is.

"Conversely, I'm saying that if you believe something, it's probably not true.  If it were true, there would be no point in believing it; it would be common knowledge, more than likely."

I am starting to suspect that all believers are the same; that what they believe is irrelevant.  It may be the act of belief and not the content that renders them moronic.  That's not a belief, mind you, just a conjecture.  Even mathematicians and scientists are allowed to conjecture about stuff, to ruminate, as it were.
