i have no problems with theists as long as their beliefs does not narrow their viewpoints. in fact i have seen people reach the same conclusions as i have by their strong belief in god. i think in the end god is a simplifying assumption that helps us explain our ideal ethical and moral codes than by taking recourse to the more accurate but complicated methods of scientific reasoning (to which most people are not used to and cannot appreciate beyond a certain point). think about the voluntary work done by the missionaries, how can one fault them simply because they believe in an entity that does not exist.
