I actually really enjoy watching her videos. Good choice Smile

I might actually watch it then if it's good L&I ... I just didn't bother because I thought it was more of his hipnostic propaganda.

I'll just play the 'can I help you' lick!!!

RE: 3 questions for atheists
1. Why do you have an active lack of belief? The position comes across as one who wants to be recognised as one who negates any form of god but not have to prove anything.

Faith is believing in something with no supporting evidence. Delusion is the idiosyncratic belief in something despite contradiction by a rational counter point or logical argument. Ergo, faith is delusion. I have an active lack of believe because I am not delusional. I hope.

2. What is the purpose of atheism?

To question. The pursuit of reason.

3. Why believe evidence is (or will be) available to confirm or negate a god?

I don't. I think that to state that such evidence exists or will exist for either argument is daft. It might. It might not. Probability, logic and reason are my North star until my path crosses something more tenable. If indeed there is anything.

Introduced to her when the Comfort Cantina was offering Origin of Species with an intro by Revolting Ray and she was like, How about a Bible with an intro by Richard Dawkins. Talk about love at first listen. Heart

Given your definition of the word makes it pointless, it's hardly useful for anyone is it?

Ok then prove that we can know.

Quote:For you to rule out a god actually making itself known to people, well that doesn't seem very agnostic of you.

That is actually very agnostic. Look up the definition.

Quote:I'm an atheist, but if we legitimately found out that god existed, I wouldn't be saying "bullshit, brownshirt says we cannot know."

Its like you're in this bubble, refusing possibilities for no reason. "NO! THERE WILL BE NO PROOF" The agnosticism around here is more of a "I dont believe, but I'm open to legitimate proof"

If proof is presented otherwise I will reassess, otherwise I don't think proof is coming. NOMA

You're finally getting it. The word isn't useless, you're just doing it wrong.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
