Atheism is NOT the claim that there is no god. Atheism is disbelief that there is a god.


It works this way:

Theists make the claim that a god exists. I ask them to provide demonstrable evidence, reasoned argument and valid/sound logic to support their claim. If they are unable to provide the above to me, I disbelieve their claim.

My atheism is a provisional position, not a dogmatic one. As long as the above criteria continues not to be met, my atheism will continue.

As an atheist, I am not making that claim that no gods exist.

Are you saying that we're atheists in hopes of avoiding divine punishment? Seriously?

Yeah, it has nothing to do with critical thinking, lack of evidence, skepticism, etc. Dodgy

So is the flying sphgetti monster.

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

Why?

Because he created them. You're questioning an infinite being's motives. That will get you nowhere.

Why do you assume an infinite being? If we conjure up some force behind the creation of the universe why do you assume it is an infinite being? Why assume an intelligent creator?

Everything must have a cause. "God" does not have a cause. Therefor "God" is not a thing. Therefor "God" does not exist.

BAM! LOGIC!
