    Expressions: I have lack of pencils,

    I have lack of gasoline,

    I have lack of belief,

    carry no information of what is in your possession.



    That could be found in the collection:
    Dmitri Martila

    They could tell me about what they posses, I mean the quest for explaining the Big Bang, the mystery of UFO and time. It does not tell me much, when they say "we have lack of..."

    But what they do? Do they struggle to explain Big Bang like Dr. Hawking has tried and failed? Do they look for explanation of UFO, and Dark Matter?

    What about you? What do you do, if you disbeliever.

    It is another expression of the atheism definition, it cares no information about your lifestyle and dreams. Do you wanna get information of how World has begun? If yes, then what do you do to get that information?

    The expression: "I have belief", carries information of what is there in possession.

    It is simply redefinition of the atheism. It gives not further insight beyond "we have lack of belief."
    But what gives the insight, is what poetry do you prefer?
    But I am not asking you, because you are not atheist.

    "Poetry, Lanny? Go back to work!"



    "I posses lack of gasoline" is nonsensical.

    No, it does not. The sense makes this figure of speech: "I have no gasoline."

    The ways to say fact can be wrong and illogical.



    The legitimate statements are:
    1. there is no gasoline,
    2. I am lacking of gasoline,
    3. I am out of gasoline,
    4. etc.
    But it is somewhat retarded to say:
    5. I have lack of 1000 liters of gasoline in my possession, please let me show you that. Are you selling your lacks?



    That is all I have asked for. Thank you. We have the winner.

    Making fun of atheism

    Only if you can stand fair comeback

    I note that your first to snipes are about real, tangible items

    Your last about imagination.

    FYI, an atheist does have belief in many things. Gust not gods. You have been informed so aften i worry for your short term memory

    When you can't logically defend what YOU believe, but you still want to logically attack whatever someone else believes, you have to try and keep the focus off yours, and on theirs. This is why the obsession with atheists proclaiming "unbelief". They don't have to defend what they DON'T believe. And their hoping we won't notice the illogic of what they DO believe.

    You can think the term 'atheist' is ridiculous. I don't much care.
    And you can think the 'meaning' of atheism is essentially non-existent. I'd potentially agree.

    But some people don't believe in God, and the umbrella term for them is 'atheists'. That's it.

    What do you think atheists believe, why do you think they believe it (as a group), and why do you think it's illogical?

    None of those things have anything to do with atheism per se (unless the suggested answer involves god(s)).

    There is no atheist list of things to believe. As has already been pointed out, atheism is just a collective term for those who lack belief in gods or disbelieve in gods. Nothing else.

    Silly question. What do people who don't play golf do? What do people who don't believe in horoscopes do?

    Atheists possess critical thinking skills that support a belief in a godless existence.

    Neither does the expression "I believe in god." This carries no information about your lifestyle and dreams. Do you want to get information of how the world began?

    That sounds like a more constructive thread.

    Dear atheists...I get that you don't believe in Gods. But tell me what you DO believe in...

    I could go in a lot of directions with that, both serious or not. You could even direct it a little more, towards morality, nature, purpose or whatever else.

    Well...technically that is true.
    Equally one could say 'Theists possess critical thinking skills that support a belief in God'.

    It is simply redefinition of the atheism. It gives not further insight beyond "we have lack of belief."
    But what gives the insight, is what poetry do you prefer?
    But I am not asking you, because you are not atheist.
