It's actually not. I have no theism, ergo I am an atheist. It's really that simple. I don't need (for example) to disprove God, since that is frankly impossible. Ask @Quintessence what God is, and then try and work out a way for me to disprove it. Or @oldbadger . Or @Oribit .
These posters all have different views of God than you do, and all are effectively unfalsifiable.
I have no theism...I am an atheist.
Ahhhh....... fashions. And terms of reference.......I suspect there is a little truth in that (re: t-shirt reactions).
People are always looking for the cool new thing, even if 'new' is just an indication that they've never heard of it.
Deists have super smooth memories.But you're forgetting a few things;
Sour grapes!1) My uber-coolness comes from not caring about coolness.
2) I'm happily married, so fighting hotties off with a stick actually gets tiring.
3) I'm Australian...sexy, intelligent, chilled and laid back are givens.
Agnostic:- One who believes that one cannot know whether or not God exists.
Atheist:- One who believes that God does not exist.
An agnostic has no theism, but an atheist has 'atheism'.
Now agnostics don't have an agenda, like many different religions and beliefs......... and atheists.
"To ignore ... is ignorance."
- This is incorrect, due to the fact that ignoring information means that you have that information and are, thus, not ignorant or "without" said information. Just because the words have the same root, doesn't mean that they have the same meaning.
I believe you.................................................... Many people have agendas, it turns out.
In relation to religion, I try not to, honestly. I can't guarantee I don't, but I try not to.
I suppose in the end, we hate the most in others what we dislike in ourselves.I believe you.......
I do have one agenda........... I react to extremism somewhat negatively.
Hence my aggressive posts can in one thread be directed at religions, in the next at atheism, in the next at some secular OP.
I'm an anti-extremist extremist!
There is a problem with me. Sometimes it is difficult for me to understand from a cassette/pod-cast.
That was my point, I do not think anyone can not take a side.
There is no "default" when it comes to what ideas humans associate with. But, ultimately, in order to be an atheist a person associates with an idea, the idea that "god" is absent from the world.Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, since I'm not quite sure what you or @Willamena mean.
I'm an atheist. Its not like I'm sitting on some proverbial fence. The difference I would have with you guys is around defaults positions, burdens of proof, etc.
So let me restate my position, since I find senantic arguments tiresome and unhelpful.
I see no ultimate literal truth in any flavour of theism I've ever encountered.
Therefore i am an atheist. Atheism has no ultimate, literal truth. If you're suggesting I can only be an atheist if I know all forms of theism is false, then you're missing my point entirely.
