Fair point.

OK, edit: "challenge my lack of belief."

Welcome aboard fellow INTJ. There are a few of us here and there are some Xians too. Those that come to preach, proselytize or berate get pretty much what they deserve.

If you really are here for honest discussion I think you'll enjoy your time in our little asylum...I mean forum. I always seem to get those two terms confused. Drinking Beverage

RE: Hi... am I the only theist here....?
Well I am not a Theist but everyone thinks I am. I guess it depends how you define theist.

I do not believe in a personal god of any kind. I do not believe that there is anything that could be called supernatural. I do not believe in any religion and I have no religion of my own. Though I do practice Buddhism which is basically an Atheist Philosophy.

I do not believe that Jesus is the son of/God (Sun God?) I do not believe that any holy book is anything but man made superstition to control the masses.

But I have been told on here that I am theist. And I guess we are all just supposed to do what we are told right? Wait that's religion. And Atheism isn't a religion right?

So maybe I imagined the whole thing. Just remember that all the Atheists on this board are real nice to people who think differently on this board and they will never twist your words or mock you because they are so open to other ideas ... and you will do just fine

The combination of hypocrisy and closed mindedness along with substituting manipulation for reasoning can bring out hostility in me. Facepalm

Hey and welcome.

Glad to have another theist around... hopefully, you won't be a retard... for some reason, 95% of the theists that come here couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag.

TTA is accepting and open to theists that show respect.

Like others have mentioned, TTA trusts me enough to be an administrator without giving regard to my beliefs.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I do trust him. Well sort of. I would not let him prepare dinner for me because who knows what kind of road kill or bizarre food item he'd place on your plate. Drinking Beverage

Uh... who says we trust you? We're just too fucking lazy to do it ourselves. Wink

Nah, we love Kingsy; aside from his massive degree of cognitive dissonance concerning his own theistic belief, he has experienced the hypocrisy of religion, similar to many here. Mainly, he is able to reason logically; this is what paints us all a similar hue of insanity. Angel

So Addai, lots of information to be explored here. This is a global community, so the perspective is all over the place. I know you'll find many interesting conversations going on - don't hesitate to join in.
