Um...I believe that misnomers exist and they are the root of the atheists errors in reasoning.

Thank you for that reply/information.

Will you be addressing any of my previous posts?

As for my attempt at 'casual' conversation, it is obvious that you are intent on staying to the very strictest of language rules, hence illustrating my point that not every one at all times does so.

Much cheers to all.

(And you can hoist your opinions on my good cheer where the sun doesn't shine, TrainWreck.)

You could count them :



Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Then atheists are going to incur some major problems. Since the United States government is classified as a secular republic, and that means Christians cannot assert their morality into law, they will have standing to charge a complaint of fraud against the sovereignty of the Constitution; and it will be further supported by the fact that their are now, institutionalized disagreement to the understanding of the document, indicating that it is in the breach among the people.

The dependence on artificial intelligence? We aren't dependent on artificial intelligence. We have our own intelligence and... Ahhh. Hmm. I see.

This may actually explain a great deal. Consider

seems about accurate to me. Then you go further down the line and hit theists.

Give us the full order, Shadow Fox - let's get this stuff straighten-out. The robots' programming of artificial intelligence needs this stuff ordered. What is ordered between secularism and theism???

Once we get this shit straighten-out your expectations of artificial intelligence, helping you understand reality, will emerge.

Okay, I am rather confused about one thing. If I personally posit a supernatural entity creates and defines reality, but I am opposed to theist doctrine in public policy, am I a theist, an atheist, or an atheist theist? Huh
