Is it okay with you if I post a link to this poll on the LJ agnosticism forum?

Sure! Just link to http://basilwhite.livejournal.com/231215.html -- polite of you to ask. I'm interested in the results!

But you don't have the right to believe that *I* don't have the right to believe anything I want.

basilwhite: Ah-ha!

Wrong! I *DO* have the right to believe that you don't have the right to believe anything you want, because I have the right to believe things that are stupid. You can't take that away from me!

kjlani: Believe you me!

I believe I have the right to believe whatever I want to believe. But only because you asked me. I imagine that if I had not formed an opinion (which you asked me for), this opinion could not have morphed into a belief. It could have been this piece of myself that I never knew. Incredible.
