Actually it doesn't matter at all, and I also don't care, if there are any rules to atheism, because reality is actually this: the very idea of an invented character turning out to exist and be the explanation for reality is unrealistic and ridiculous, and obviously I don't feel anything to this character because its just a fictional character, of course.

SO glad I actually have no one like that IRL I have to deal with.....

Easy to ban people, and burn books you dont like, and put your fingers in your ears, and shove your head in the sand.

Look man. I know MORE about religion than you do. I just don't buy it. I have MORE religious books than you do. The thing is, American Fundamentalism is FAR FAR from serious academic Religious Studies. The crap that the third rate hacks like Craig, Stroebel, and Habermas do has NOTHING to do with REAL academia. They are frauds.

RE: Why Am I a Theist, not an Atheist, and Not Just Any Kind of Theist
Why can't all of you just see that this isn't even something to be argued for or against? It's such an obviously bullshit idea. Reality isn't going to change no matter what you think. How anyone can seriously believe something so gratuitously invented and convoluted is beyond me - and to think I used to and didn't even know why, as well, for fuck's sake.

Can any of you, just for once, please actually explain to me why you even believe something so unbelievable, take it so seriously, and be so sure of yourselves, because none of you have ever explained it to me and made it sound reasonable yet. Drinking Beverage

Taqiyya, please try not to make multiple posts, wait for someone else to get a word in. I thought we had talked about that, and given you a tool to help. We don't have a lot of rules here, try not to break them.... It's gotten a bit better but it's not good enough yet to ward off the spamming rule.

RE: Why Am I a Theist, not an Atheist, and Not Just Any Kind of Theist
Multiple posts, REALLY? "Wait for someone else to get a fucking WORD in"??? For FUCK'S SAKE, Get a fucking GRIP. One post was at 24-12-2013, 08:53 PM, the next was at 09:35, over 40 minutes later, and the next was at 4:44 PM the NEXT FUCKING DAY. Get a sense of fucking PERSPECTIVE. Jesus Fucking Christ. And frequent posting that is relevant to the topic at hand has NEVER been considered "spamming" ANYWHERE on the fucking internet, and there is NO language in the rules here forbidding it. What the fuck is your problem.

You've been doing better as of late. No doubt.

Problem is you'e already set a pretty annoying precedent for multiple posts in a thread in which you pretty much take over and choke out any chance for give and take conversation. It's fucking annoying as hell. Most regular posters don't fucking like it.

That said, you have improved. Thank you for that. You could improve more. Reflect on that.

Shalom, bird.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
