See what I mean? I wasn't a "believer" or "skeptic" just a sad kid looking for guidance/closure.
I do see what you are saying. I was referring to the "believers" - replying to the post I quoted. Trying to convince a believer with evidence is pointless because they don't need any.
For sad folks, who are impressionable like you were, I think this is where the true danger lies, as you mentioned. I am in agreement with you, there is harm. But I was speaking only about believers.
