rebirth and the big fish

On a Buddhist bulletin board, the interminably repeated question arose again -- does a card-carrying Buddhist have to believe in rebirth?

Usually, I can keep my mouth shut, but today, my fingers got the better of me:

Belief or disbelief in rebirth is a bit like the old graffito, "Man without God is like a fish without a bicycle."

Buddhists have bigger fish to fry than belief and disbelief.
Maybe next time I'll know better than to trust my fingers.
