What are you looking for, theists who believe in science, or what?

Ok this is what I just asked Mathilda.

Now, who or what determines what the word atheism means?

Why do you ask questions that you already know the answer to?

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Are you covering for Trainwreck? He's been popping in to your threads quite frequently, and now it seems you're just setting up the stage for him to come along and drunkly ramble into the microphone.

So what you are asking is

"Can someone who does not believe in God believe in God and this not be a contradiction?"

... or to make it more succinct:

"Can an atheist not be an atheist and this not be a contradiction?"

So it is a contradiction because of how atheism is defined. Is that correct?

You argue like a three year-old. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
