An atheist is someone who has no belief in any gods.

And your evidence of this is what? I reject your definition as incoherent.

WTF Gordy? You keep using that word (god) and I don't think you know what it means.

LOL.

Quote:Who are you talking to? How can I start a sentence with "There can be no god, because..." when I don't hold that position, and I think that you will rarely find an atheist with that opinion.

As of the moment of this writing then, I have come to the #1 atheist group looking for a definition of atheism, and so far I can't seem to get it. No

See, you're not really capable of debate on this. First you ask for evidence (which indicates you understand the definition), then you say the definition is incoherent.

You contradict yourself. You are the less rational and logical. You lose. Sorry. You shouldn't think this reflects negatively on you as a person. You're a good man. Laughat

Atheism: Not having a belief in any gods.

How many times to we have to say it?

Science can handle consciousness. They learn more about it every day. It exists ONLY within functioning (live) brains. There is no "mind" apart from functioning live brains.

For someone who claims to work in Neuro-science, some people's ignorance of the field is scandalous. There is no *one* definition of atheism. People who need things all labeled,and wrapped up neat in little boxes don't need labels and boxes, they need enemas.

But I don't believe in me either, so I still qualify as an atheist. Tongue
