RE: 3 questions for atheists
Hey Taq I was wondering...
Would you be comfortable making this assertion:

Fish cannot clap their hands.

If so please tell me why.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

I would be happy to have that discussion with you.
But there's some sort of disconnect in the fashion that you convey your ideas, that tell me the discussion wouldn't be ....profitable for either of us.

So until such time that I find the key to prosperous dialog...

What is this disconnect between my ideas and how I convey them? How do you have such insight into this?I find it strange that you say this after your brief intro, your own perspective being so vague yet you seemed to expect it to be inherently understood.

So what is your position on religious claims?

I don't believe them to be true. I am agnostic towards deism.

And that's the exact same answer I give.

See why there's a disconnect now?

RE: 3 questions for atheists
So you're atheist towards any humanly defined gods but not a deist god?

If you're atheistic towards gods this would include a deist god would it not?

I have no issue not believing religion but when it crosses over into this generics gods stance it becomes very very grey.

You need to understand what agnosticism is before making statements like that.

YOU need to understand what agnosticism is, rather than make up your own definitions and attempting to impress them on the rest of the fucking world.

Wanna try some of my makeup and get wasted by the fire tonight? Breaking up is such a hard thing to do. Wink

EDIT: just to let you know I don't own any makeup. But I have a few beers. Thumbsup

I'll bring the Ganja!!!!!

LOL.


No.

Because I am unaware of any species of fish that actually has hands.




Wait -- you're fucking with me -- they can't clap their hands because they don't have hands, oh wait, I've seen this before.....
