RE: Tell me your definition atheism
I'll have to go along and second what Chas said....
You aren't an atheist and your story is fabricated.

And you're wrong
Its my non belief in leprechauns that destroys
I think you'll find most theists don't believe in leprechauns either and that's why they are so corrupt. That's just common sense..
Everyone knows that

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

IM(not)HO ,, if your not a skeptic above atheist, then your atheism is a sham and I probably hate you.

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

So, you're Michael the Asshole Vegan's buddy, and you're in high school. Is Michael the Asshole Vegan in high school too?




I agree with Chas and Rahn. I think you're full of shit.

If you describe someone as tall, or smart, or grumpy, or obese, or elderly, or Belgian, or educated, or just about any other thing, then everyone who hears your description can form a better mental picture of that person. But describing someone as atheist only tells you something that person is NOT, rather than something he is, and it doesn't really help you form a better mental picture of that person.

Yup.

We could always introduced ourselves like this
"Hi Paul, I'm not a theist".

Or if you are indeed a grumpy, obese, elderly Belgian you could walk right up to Paul and say "Hi Paul, I'm not a happy, skinny, young Muldovian, pleased to meet you".

Neither has told Paul anything other than what I am not, nothing about who or what I am. Imagine if you had to tell someone all the things you aren't so that by a process of elimination you could arrive at a decription of the person Dodgy

It's called negative ascription, and there were theologians who tried to describe God in that way, because a human claiming knowledge of God's nature was seen as blasphemous.

Now, they speak FOR God, and call YOU blasphemous.
