Not going to answer your poll and let you put people into little boxes. You've contributed nothing to this community and have no credibility.
Tell us about yourself in an introduction post, express your own interests, things like that.
This should be a minimum requirement to get to post anywhere else, IMO.
It would not stop anyone faking something, but we could then criticize the creative writing.

Thank you! Excellent response!

Absolutely. Here’s the evidence.

RE: For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
Yes, I don't believe a god exists. That is of course unless a reasonable definition can be established. And such a defined god or gods can be demonstrated with due process.

The problem is what people define as a god or gods shifts constantly. Everyone has their own interpretation and everyone will disagree with the other. My god can shoot lighting, my god can stop time, my god can do all that and more. If they can allow it to demonstrate it.

And even after all we still demonstrated somehow that one or many did exist. We are still left with the question what it dose? How it lives? Dose it demand something? The list just goes on and on.

Does that mean answers who wear peaked caps, leather basques, fishnets, ultra high heels and carry canes and whips?

I believe no god exists outside of the mind of humans.

RE: For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
I do not believe that any of the theistic gods ever posited by any religion exists. Based on logic alone, they cannot exist.

When it comes to a deistic god, I disbelieve that god exists.

When it comes to debating atheism, the only position that has to be defended, is the disbelief that gods exist.

RE: For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
I suppose that's what makes me agnostic. If I had to pick a side, I'd say I believe no gods exist. But since I don't, I'd rather practice good science and say that the available evidence suggests that the existence of a god or gods is unproven and unlikely.

RE: For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
We no longer need the idea of a god to explain things--not when science offers up better explanations and consistently proves the claims of theists wrong.

So what drives theists to cling to their beliefs if science offers better explanations? In some cases, it's culture. In some cases, it's fear. In some cases, it's cult-style brainwashing. And in some cases, there are people who like the idea of having their own personal genie who loves them and grants them magical wishes.

Could there be a magical sky genie who made the world and is completely hands off? Maybe he is too busy golfing during his retirement to be concerned with his creations? And why so many magical sky genies? Many cultures across time have had their own sky genies. Is there a whole civilization of magical sky genies that live in the heavens and choose groups of people at random to be their besties? Wink Anything is possible, but these scenarios seem highly, highly unlikely.

However, "I do not believe X" is not the same thing as "I believe NOT X". By example, "I do not believe a god(s) exists" is not the same as "I believe no god(s) exists". So I want to poll this distinction.
We should all know this, but keep in mind that "I believe" is not the same thing as "I know". For example, "I'm pretty sure that fairies don't exist, but I can't be certain of it" means "Yes, I believe fairies don't exist".
Last thing, you can use any definition of "god" that you think is relevant. Basically, just don't define "god" as "toaster".
If the question isn't clear, simply don't answer the poll. I'm looking for strict answers.

Speaking only for myself, I believe that no gods exist. On my view, belief is the degree to which a proposition is accepted as true and it ranges from extremely tentative to nearly certain. When it comes to the god of the Abrahamic religions, I am certain that it does not exist. It is impossible in principle. Any proposed gods that are said to hold metaphysical primacy over reality are the same. Gods exist only in the imagination. They are fantasies.
