Can you discuss the existence (or non-existence) of God without insulting someone?


It appears to me that whenever someone discusses God or religion that it always results in an argument where a person's intelligence is put into question. Answers are usually voted up or down depending on the beliefs of the reviewer and not on the quality of the statement. Is it possible to talk about this subject without insulting another person or their views?

    I think the deeper problem relies not in that people aren't okay with other people having different opinions, but that when it comes to religion, they consider what they believe to be facts. They don't see it as arguing opinions, in my opinion.
