In logic, "possibility" is not a declarative statement.. it is not an argument.

Which is irrelevant to the definition of atheism.

Being an atheist has nothing to do with whether or not you believe it is possible that a god exists. It is only concerned with whether or not you believe that one actually does.

No one here is concerned with the word "possible" except you.

What is the subject matter for our argument?

I am personally not sure.

You keep posting a statement.

We keep replying to said statement.

Then, you seem to go off on a tangent.

We ask for (corrections/more information/clarifications/definitions) in regarding your (opening/beginning/original) statement.

You either re-post the opening statement... or continue off along seeming random tangents... until reposing your original statement.

Consider

My question is very simple, "What is the subject matter for our argument?"

Yes, your question was very simple. As, I hope, my answer was as direct and concise.

So you want to make an argument about my conclusion, "Truth has no religion?"

Is that it?

RE: God (truth, real self) has no religion
Matheism, you are spinning your wheels here.

You believe in all gods. That is preferable to fighting the religious wars that have plagued humanity for ever.

We believe in no gods. That also solves the issue of religious wars.

You're not going to convince a bunch of atheists to believe in all gods. We don't believe in any gods, period.

It would take actual proof that there are gods to make us change our minds. You don't have that.

So, you might as well give it a rest...

I would prefer a conversation where we both learn about each others points of view. Smile

The above "Truth has no religion", on its own, is not a conclusion.

You have to add more before it for it to become a conclusion. Yes

This above quote from some one else? Is really meaningless since it I, or any one else, has any way of understanding the [i]how[i] of it pertaining to your thoughts without further expansion./explanation from yourself.
