That isn't the operative definition I generally mean when I call myself an atheist. I am someone who has no belief in the existence of any god.

Quote: who also believes that God is logically necessary. So I can honestly say that I am an atheist who believes in God. It's a God of logical necessity.

Please start a thread in an appropriate section of the forum about this. I do not see any necessity, logical or otherwise, for a god to exist so I'd like to understand your reasoning.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

An atheist is someone who does not believe in any god at all.

This again? And in someone else's intro thread, something you seem unwilling to do. Oh well.

Welcome to Oranssi who is and isn't. Looks like you've got all the bases covered.

Welcome. Since this is only an introduction section and not a debate we'll leave it at that. I'm sure we will have a lively disction.

But your definitions are off.

Oh and welcome to the forum

Welcome.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.
