I'll make it easier.

Same question, 3 answers.

1, Do you believe in God? Yes. (That's a belief in God)

2, Do you believe in God? No. (That's a belief there isn't a God)

3, Do you believe in God? I haven't made my mind up yet. (That's a lack of belief for or against a God)

I would be number 3.


And you call yourself an atheist?

Strong is the force of agnosticism on this padawan.




Now you're mixing up agnostic and atheism based on a simple explanation. Congrats.

I LACK A BELIEF. THAT MAKES ME AN ATHEIST.

Is that clearer?


And so is a corpse - it lacks a belief.

A lot of things lack beliefs. Your point is?


Unless you're a corpse, no living intelligent being lack a belief or lack faith on whatever it is.


So, according to you, all atheists are corpses?

BTW. Not the topic.

I don't believe or disbelieve in a god. How hard is that to understand. Maybe there is maybe there isn't but there's not enough evidence either way.

I've looked at pretty much all of his threads are some kind of "god is real and that's a fact". It's like he wants to get proven wrong over and over.


Funny thing is, I'm an athiest. I lack belief and I need proof of God for me to believe in it. I've seen plenty of threads that say they prove it. None of them do so I'm still an athiest.


Lol!

To the contrary! Athiesm is a form of faith whether you believe it or not - it's based on the belief that there's no God hence A - Theist.

If you don't believe this, then why believe there's no God or that God didn't do it?

Haven't you have faith in your own belief?





Atheism is belief in only what has evidence.

If there were evidence for a god, they would believe. If Jesus lands on the White House lawn next tues. every athiest on the planet converts.

Precisely. If God came down and made itself known I would believe. But an old book of stories isn't enough for me.

And that is the difference between religion and athiests.

In a religion you are supposed to believe reguardless of any evidence against it. You should have faith and not question God. Any evidence against God, is all just a very elaborate attempt by the devil to confuse you...

Atheism is a lack of belief, because of a lack of evidence. If evidence is ever presented, every single athiest converts.

No matter how many times science has busted Christianity, they deny and then move the goal posts and pretend the bible was right all along.

Define it however you want, it's still a FORM of belief.

Saying it's a disbelief is still a form of belief. Because in order to disbelieve something you must believe it that it is not.

Like I said - pohtahtoe potato - however you say it's still a potato.

I guess you didn't get what I'm getting at.

Since you're the one who brought up your faith on atheism and was having fun with your buds at my expense, it was just right for me to delve into the realm of atheism and exposed it for what it is - a form of faith.

Now you tell me to grow up?

Ha! What's up with that?

Can't handle the truth?

I guess so.

Thing is, it takes more faith to believe in atheism.

You have to suspend reality and pretend that there's no such thing.

Thus, in order to prop it up, one has to come up with so many illogical explanations.

Such is the lot of atheism.

Yet when Jesus came and presented himself as the son of God - the elites mocked and killed him.

Inspite of all the things he did to show he was from God, he was made fun of and then killed.

No - it proves what I'm saying - Unless you're a corpse, no living intelligent being lack a belief or lack faith on whatever it is he/she believes in.

Hence Atheism is a FORM of BELIEF!

YOU JUST PROVEN ME RIGHT!

Now whether it's a religion, that's your choice.

To me, it is because in it's simplest form, religion is a way of life. How you live your life is your religion.

cool. the theory of gravity is a form of belief too. surely you want to set about proving that gravity is a religion?

Yet there's no definitive proof of those things. Conflicting stories is all we have. If Jesus had truly done what was written I believe people would have documented it on a much bigger scale and done so at the time the events happened.
