It's not disrespectful to express your opinion. It's disrespectful to claim MY opinion is disrespectful because it is different than yours or someone else's.

I agree completely with that,I just want to say that it's disrespectful if you claim that your version of truth is the only one possible.

I'm not blind to your opinion. I simply know that your opinion is wrong.

[Seriously, don't overanalyze this. I realize an opinion is different from a fact.]

I'm not upset,just saying we should respect other people's opinion,even if we think it's wrong.

Most people would agree that Mengele was wrong. Should we respect his opinions, too?

It all reminds me of a quote I read somewhere:

"Opinion is like an arsehole. Everyone has one and everyone's stinks." :P

Let me clarify that-we should respect everyone's opinion as long as it's not dangerous to other people or hateful with no reason,like racism.
There is a big difference between killing innocent people and believing in God.

To the OP:

First of all, your keyboard has an enter key, please learn to use it. I'm not meaning to be rude, but breaking things up into paragraphs makes it easier to read.

For you, I have good news and I have other good news.

First, the good news. You're right about Satan. He was an angel at one time. All demons were once angels, actually.

Now, for the good news. You don't become an angel in Heaven. You're still human. Well, maybe not biologically. The body your have now will be dead, and I'm not sure exactly what the new one will look like, or if you'll even have a physical form at all. Don't worry though, your mind will remain intact and just as human as it is now. And I'm almost certain you don't lose your free will.

In fact, I suspect angels also have free will, although I haven't studied much about them.


To the rest of the thread:

There aren't versions of the truth. There is one objective truth. I totally claim it as mine, too. :D

But even if I'm wrong about what the objective truth is, there is still some objective truth out there. Maybe what sanddbox believes is the objective truth. Maybe Scientology got it right. But you can't sit here and say that what I believe and what sanddbox believes and what Scientologists believe are all true.
