Irritatated by irrationality on skeptics.se

Here is a famous picture of Richard Dawkins irritated by irrationality:

I have a person known to have a strong heavy and strong basis toward atheism. My account description was once:

You are not a believer. You shall not believe in delusions and superstitions. People are born, they grow old and then they die. That's the world we live in. There's no magic, no mysticism, no immortality, no god, no jesus, no sixth sense, no witchcraft, no omens, no prophecies, no real astrology, no extrasensory perception, no vampires, no angels, no miracles, no ghosts, no psychics, no heaven or hell. The supernatural does not exist nor it will ever will. There is nothing that defies rational thought. You are not a believer. You can't be.

And this is how I lived my life starting the age of 16. I am a skeptical person in my nature; I love scientific skepticism. I fell in love at first sight with skeptics.se. My experience was good and bad at this site.

The site is full of religious people, most of them are respected people with high level of scientific skepticism; I don't mind that at all and I respect every religious people as well as I respect their religion. But I get irritated by irrationality sometimes when they post non-scientific stuff.

One member complained once about Richard Dawkins advertisement, and got it removed from the site:



Another member said vaccines are equal to miracles:

On this post I said that miracle questions should be off-topic:


 Guess which response I got: Vaccines are not different than miracles. I got irritated but remained calm.



And so on...
