    Lot's of pretty smart people who believe. But their belief is tempered by reason, and excludes the truly crazy stuff like gays burning in hell.

        I agree that the divinity part is inherently not rational, but that's something that rational believers readily admit to. That some of us have taken the logical next step to remove the irrational part entirely since it neither makes sense nor seems necessary doesn't mean that everybody else is ready to, nor does it make them otherwise irrational. It's a big world.
