Were your belief the common one, the growth of humanity would cease and no new knowledge would be gained. Feel free to tear that apart.

That's, oh so hypocritical.
So it's hypocritical to allow someone to defend themselves when threatened, but not allow someone to threaten people?

They aren't absolutely impossible, because the only thing that is absolutely impossible is definite proof through induction. However, your beliefs are improbable to the point that we'd may as well take them as impossible until further evidence suggest otherwise. The elimination of possibilities to discover the most probable cause is the single most important factor in the growth of humanity. Without deduction, we would be apes.

But I thought everyone had the right to have their beliefs respected? What if my belief is that the Jews have invaded my rightful homeland and must be eliminated? Should all Jews be expected to voluntarily line up for the slaughter, out of respect for my belief?

So, if I incorrectly believe that all flight is the result of magic fairy dust and happy thoughts, the physical world is suddenly altered so it becomes true simply because someone said two words to me?

Every person has THE RIGHT (a right is indisputable) to have their own beliefs respected.
Each person has the right to hold their own beliefs, not to have those beliefs respected.
