I don't know how to answer that question adequately because it's both broad and vague.

Atheism is vague and I think you prefer it this way.

There is nothing vague about it. It is clear and simple.Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Ummm....What?

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.

It's as vague as "I don't run marathons."

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

"I don't believe in fucking fairy tales" might seem rather vague, too. But that completely sums up my atheism in five words.

Um your question assumes that such a thing exists. However, according to the fairy tales, the Xtard deity is claimed to have shown itself to SEVERAL humans in the course of the story. And the character in the story seems quite desperate to make itself known to the humans it terrorizes and massacres.


[quote]You're so typical of atheists, look at you attempting to shift any form of burden onto me.[/quot]e

I love how theists and theist shills try to shift their burden of proof, and at the same time try to convince anyone who may be watching and doesn't have a first clue of logic or debate that we are the ones who bear the burden of proof.

How disingenuous of you.

Firstly you lack (not don't) and run (is definable act, while belief/knowledge is grey) and marathons (are something fully understood) while deity is not.

Apart from that it's spot on.Thumbsup

Sure, if it were simple and clear then others such as agnostics and theists and even some atheists wouldn't criticise the stance it claims to hold.

You don't want to accept the definition from The Oxford English Dictionary?

Too fucking bad - you're an idiot. Drinking Beverage
