Everyone should be honest is fourth stance of atheism?

I can't for the life of me figure out how this is a coherent response to anything.

No, child, the fact that I, personally, find you tediously dishonest does not have anything to do with atheism.

Huh

Apparently you are not very bright if you need everything spelled out. Everyone is different. What makes me feel like my life has meaning might be totally different from what makes you feel like your life has meaning. It is not a one size fits all situation. If believing in a god does it for you, I am happy you found what gives you meaning for your life. It did nothing for me.

Not everyone is going to agree or place the same importance on those three items. Some may place experiences over evidence in terms of importance; thus, creating your own niche of "logic". The reverse is also true. Theists tend to place more credence in experience and atheists tend to place more credence in evidence. "Knowledge" is changes from person to person, day to day, so it sits somewhere in the middle. For people who place evidence higher than experiences, forming beliefs around experiences seems illogical and vice versa.

If you change 'logic' to 'reasoning', you've got a good argument.

Logic is not subjective.

Indeed; it's constructed.

What's wrong with that. Parents impose death and risk of suffering on their biological children without their consent. Isn't it unethical? Does atheism care about ethics?

So... one offhand reference from a single post in another forum is "atheists" (all of them, I guess...).

Right, then.

Facepalm

They ignore any post if they can't think of any snappy one liners.

I'd go see a shrink because it's logically impossible to prove that atheism is logically inconsistent.
Please explain.

Atheism is ONLY the lack of belief in god(s). So your point was...?

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
