Yes That's right... Or there abouts.

Another problem is the subtle variations in our common language that we share in 'English'. Different speakers in different countries use it subtly differently. Then, there are regional differences.

Hence why different professions have very specific words, terms and usages of the language. Smile

Yes Yup, people giving you their views is always good.

Yes Indeed I am also sure that many here would/do agree that such supernatural claims/terms.

Yes That's also true. Though a different expression of words gives a subtly different meaning.

Mine is more along the lines of Mr Dillahunty and such people that;

"There, up to this point in time, simply not any/enough evidence for any god(s)."

Substitute 'God' for 'unicorns' and you have my opinion. I don't know unicorns don't exist but I've seen no evidence to make me believe they do.

I believe there are no elephants in my car.

I hope that clears up my stance on if a god exists or not.

At work.

Who cares?

I believe no gods exist and thank you for pointing out the distinction between belief and knowledge. That gets lost most of the time.

Fuck it, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and just say they don't exist. Waiting for someone to prove me wrong.
