Absolutely everyone I know shares all of my beliefs, and I know a lot of people.  Why are you guys so different?

People differ. You might know persons from a restricted (relatively speaking) circle sharing a lot of similar views, but on the interwebz, diversity of opinion takes a boost.
Additionally, those "debates" we had with you were not new to us, but apparently were to you. Which gives us some arguments and reflection advantage.

Then again, you did not behave very friendly, on the contrary, your behaviour was at times offending or even ridiculous, which does not help your case.

And I would see it as a good thing that people are different. Else it would be boring around here ;)

This is the case with extreme beliefs often. They proliferate in closed circles where outside opinions never shine. When what you're told is never questioned by anyone, it never goes away. 

You're in the vast minority KnightDeclan. At the far end of the bellcurve. Very near the radicals who go bombing abortion clinics and the KKK or other hate groups.

The reason many here are against your views is because many of those views are either unsupported by the facts are go against the facts.

(Sorry for not quoting, hard to do on a phone.)

From what you're saying here further suggests you've been for the most part sheltered from outside views. Most people actually would see your views as quite radical.

the people you know probably had the same kind of life as you have.(same place, same school, same church, etc, etc. making you all kinda the same.
and you all are never questioned about the believes that you have adopted from your parents. and if they are questioned then all of you say the same thing, agree whit each other and have a piece of cake.

while here, you find people not only from your own little community or region you live in. but here you find people that had a different life then you had. and thus have a different view of the world and life as you have. and it is imported for you to understand that these people are not by definition dumb or stupid because they have a different point of view. there is much to learn from people that are different then yourself.
people that stand on your toes are often people you can learn much from as they are showing you a different world then you have been looking at.
it can open your mind towards the rest of the world instead of sticking whit only those people that agree whit you. opening new ideas, new answers and new questions. but for that, you must be willing to take a step outside the comfort zone of your friends that no matter what will always agree whit you anyway.

It's also worth noting that in the case of religion, there are many atheists that will go to church every Sunday and pretend to be Christian in order to please their families. If you have a friend who changes the subject everytime you bring up religion or nods their head witha bored look on their face as if they agree with you, it's a good possibility that this person is secretly an atheist.

Ahem..or an agnostic theist =p

As to the topic...

You know..for others, there is a slimmer of hope for salvaging any sort of non-harsh feelings if you just open up your mind and cease having such an ignorant, bigoted, and stubborn mindset.

As for me..no such hope exists. I don't like you..at all.

Why are you such a whiner? The World doesn't revolve around you!
You either accept the fact that people are different from each other and there's nothing wrong about that.
Accept it or STFU!

There's been a lot of tension in this section for a while. Please show some restraint.

This goes for everyone.
