" just man up and admit that theres no god, and youre a human being like anyone else."
Do you really think that advances the discussion in any meaningful way?
Do you assume that because most theists are knowingly self-delusional, simply because they're reached a different conclusion than you have regarding the existence of a deity?
If so, I think you have a very limited understanding of what goes on in other persons' minds. Some of whom are far, far more intelligent than you are.
