I've amended my philosophy in that Gwyneth is the other prophet, through her is see god as love. Through myself I see god as entropy.

Who needs a god. Come to Australia.

But that can't be in Australia, because in another thread you said Australia was flat.

Checkmate, Australian!

I'd have to strongly disagree with this claim. Firstly, if you think declaring yourself an "atheist" makes you a member of any singular "group" then you don't really understand what atheism refers to. It has nothing at all to do with groupthink, or dogma, or formulae of belief. It's a very personal, solitary thing, and nothing more—or less—than an abstract state of mind. Like love or anger or envy—none have any qualitative and/or quantitative reality.

I think you may inadvertently be tending to conflate atheism with religion—as far as any contiguousness of individuals go. Individual theists do all form part of a larger group bound by common dogma; atheists don't, and never will.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

The nice thing about being an atheist is that, if you don't tell anyone, you're invisible.

Cool

RE: Where to find the beauty in a world without a god
From a more humanistic approach...

I think my favorite example of beauty comes from a more narcissistic perspective for me. I think human life is one of the most amazing things to think about philosophically. I think that life is one of the most poetic things to think about in general, honestly.

God is found in the limit as N approaches infinity, as the discrete approaches the continuous, as the natural approaches the real, as the me approaches the we. For any epsilon there is a delta such that.
