I for one have no problem offending religious people. Faith is by definition a form of intellectual dishonesty, and to encourage it in any way is to embrace ignorance. Anyone with such fundamentally flawed logic is unlikely to contribute anything great to computing anyway, so it's no loss if something as trivial as a logo drives them away from a project.

Know the meaning of this.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.(Martin Luther King Jr.)

Your faith definition fall short accordingly.

It's more like taking the first step when there's no reason to think there might be any staircase, and with much greater likelihood the edge of a cliff. Except instead of just falling to your death, you drag the rest of humanity down a bit.

Analogies are pointless. The dictionary definition of faith is clear, and it's mutually exclusive with logic.

No, that quote proves that definition (I'd say it was more of a description).

Please post your anti-religious sentiments somewhere on proper forum give me the link and we will talk there. Let us learn to live with one another, religious or non-religious, and when you get offended because someone is not comfortable with a mascot or a logo of an OS that you loved?

You are the one who brought religious BS into this thread, into this forum.

BTW, I am offended by your avatar.
