Aaah, How Sweet .. Loved that Statement: Welcome to Family! Big Grin
Alright, I don't proclaim that I'm an Atheist rather I'm an Agnostic, a Skeptic, a Rationalist.. Earnestly, I believe in what I see, what I sense logically..
I understand why you use the term agnostic, because many people mistakenly use the term to mean lack of belief and mistakenly use the term atheist to mean belief that there is no god.

It's certainly not your fault. I think the term atheist needs to be promoted more so that people know what it means.
It's not an illogical belief, it merely means a lack of belief in any gods.

Agree, but not all maths appear, on the surface to be logical, (see Dirac's tensors and matricies). The point is the appearance of "(intuitively) logical" is not sufficient.

Remember: when discussing things like the origin of the universe and what-not, "I don't know" is a perfectly valid answer. Stuff like the big bang is basically our best guess based on what we can observe. We know that the universe is over 13 billion years old and that everything is spreading out from a centralized location. There are plenty of things we don't know about the big bang, but it's a reasonable approach given what we do know.

I hope you had a chance to get familiar with the place before people start picking at you. .....oh, I see they've already started.


Where is everyone's manners? Let the noob get out of the foyer before you jump him? Sheesh

This is the internet.

Manners and common courtesy have no power here!

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
