.......is hardly different or out of the ordinary for it (belief in God) is world spread. it is only weird to those who do not believe in a god.
Again you are stating the obvious. Of course a self-centered god fearing nit-wit would not think he his weird and of course, everybody else (who is not a God-fearing nit-wit) would think he is weird.
Apart from that you made the usual ad populum fallacy. Just because believing in God is world spread, it doesn't make it acceptable or somehow all right. Robbery and murder are world spread but that hardly mitigates the crime or somehow make it acceptable, does it?
In other words, deluded nit-wits are world spread.
And in case you didn't get it before, being a scientist or intelligent person does not mean that such a person is not a deluded nitwit. Being idi-otic, nit-witted and deluded is a condition that crosses all boundaries.
