Do you see what kind of empty argument you have? You have nothing. You say you do not require proof, because you know you have no proof.
Empty. Hypocritical.... That's all atheism has. Nothing!

Proof of what? Atheism makes no claim.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Careful wordy, you're projecting again. Yes

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.

I don't understand why this seems to be so hard to get for some people. ... When I have to say this, I have already switched from my adult conversational tone to my talking to children voice.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I'm begining to get the feeling that you don't understand words, this seems to happen often with Christees and I'm not sure why.

I'm going to type slowly here for your benefit Yes

The reason PeterKA says that Atheism doesn't require proof is for the reason Chas gives ATHEISM MAKES NO CLAIMS.

What are we supposed to prove if we aren't making a claim?

You, meaning religious folk, claim that gods exist.
We, meaning non-religious folk, ask to be shown proof of this claim.
You point to a book.
We look at you with pity and scratch our heads and feel sorry for you and try to go about our business but
You want to change school curriculum to reflect these fantasies.
We push back and try to keep our next generation from becoming dolts.
You want to change laws to reflect your narrow-minded, homophobic, mysogenistic views of the world.
We push back to keep dangerous and medieval laws from being enacted.
You get angry that we don't drink your Kool Aid

I'd rather see you angry than roll over and let you take all of us back a thousand years to the dark ages.

Sorry, I typed as slowly as I could, hope it isn't too fast for you. Consider

“I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.”~Mark Twain
“Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills.”~ Ambrose Bierce

...and insulting me has always been a good way to make me see your point of view.

Atheism exists because of a lack of proof. I no longer believe because all the "evidence" that was given to me as a child has proven to be no more than unsubstantiated, second-hand opinion.
Prove to me that a god exists (doesnt matter which one out of the thousands you have to choose from) and I will stop being an atheist.
I know you have heard it before, but you are the one making a claim. You are claiming that a god exists despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. It is up to you to provide the evidence to give your claim substance

The secret to a happy life is lowering your expectations to the point where they are already met

RE: Why do people hate athesits do much?
I'm sure its been repeated a thousand times but I'll say it again anyway, just because I want to.


We are hated because we are a walking, talking, breathing reminder that they (theists) could be, and probably are, wrong. We force them to have to question their juvenile and ridiculous mythos, pulling off their little security blanket buffer to reality and making them stare that monster in the eye. That makes them sad...and angry.....and want their mommy. (or their invisible daddy I guess)

My only addition to this is that using all logic the "god" of the bible has caused unnecessary suffering to all of humanity.

Every time I saw this thread title, I was reminded of Vosur's old post (which I modified to fit the present idiocy).
