Strange philosophical stance
Quote:I do not do believing.

This comes from an agnostic who claims that There are no gods is also a positive assertion requiring support.

Very irritating.

RE: Strange philosophical stance
Depends on the definition of 'belief'.

I think it's a stance that some take to dodge the "well, what do you believe in?" question. "I don't do faith" would be simpler to defend.

But yes, "There are no gods" is indeed a positive assertion that bears the burden of proof.

Yes

RE: Strange philosophical stance
I would say "there are no gods" is a NEGATIVE assertion.

But, I'm not positive...

There are no pink sparkly unicorns. As this requires support, I will shortly embark on a 12 month search for evidence.

I will only be looking in spots where I can surf, as I have advice from experts that those are the best places to look.
