I wouldn't debate/state/argue my point because frankly it comes out as nonsense to others as theirs does to me. I argue about the real things I care about and leave religion alone. Noone has the correct answers on it and never have. Besides, I get what your hoping for (apathy) but I'd rather keep my mouth shut on the issue rather than get in arguement for something that means so little to me in my view or rather even killed for it. Religion and politics are heated discussions alone, but some take it to the extrememe and I'd rather have no stance on it. Maybe that's what I was trying to say but used the 'live and let live' reference to lightly. Personally I think religion is a personal issue and should remain that way.
I've thought about this all day... and I really think the 'tolerance' just boils down to "leaving it alone" whatever IT is per topic. Does that make sense?
I guess, it's helpful sometimes to not interfere. I think that makes one apathetic in his views related to anything 'per topic' though, while now that I thought about it more myself, there should be a dialog and interaction between people of different beliefs who disagree, because in a public debate..etc, you know that at least you get to say what you believe in and argue for it, listen to the opposing side/s and know that you won't be bashed for it.
That is if the debate was between balanced minded people/s who are more interested in the arguments made than their previous/still current position of it or the urge to rip their opponent apart.
But again, maybe it's best to leave something alone, I agree.
