One can be open and unassuming in plenty of legitimate discussions while trying to speak upon possible ideas or asking questions.

Hell even a solopsist can have a conservation with someone and ask them things without even assuming the person even exists outside their mind.

I also have no understanding of what point you were trying to make in that conclusion so im not even gonna try to assume I get that.
So you are not opposed to assumptions then? A simple yes or no would be fine.
Pssst.... come here.... a lil closer.... I'm not opposed to them either... just in case you don't want to sound like you agree with me.

It's a double negative question so I'm not so sure how one would view a simple yes or no. I am more inclined to be opposed to many types of assumptions.

We often assume assumptions will help the slow methodical back and forth of finding out ones thoughts and therefore make conversations go quicker into the points at hand, but I see conflict with that way too often.

People on places here who make frequent assumptions in the intensions of their phrases often get into way too many more bickering and nonsense arguing instead of ever sticking and focusing to the point they were going on about.

Not normally, but God is not a normal case.

You appear to have misunderstood the question. Try again.

I believe in atomic theory. You may believe in ghosts for all I know.

Agnosticism is neither here nor there and therefore nowhere.

Capitalizing god implies the theistic god of the Abrahamic faiths. That self-contradictory mess of borrowed concepts most certainly does not exist as described.

God or gods. What does any of it matter?

Obviously, you know everything, otherwise you wouldn't make such a remark.
