Most people have no idea why they believe what they believe. I've been listening a lot to dogma debate and it's been quite painful. However I laud his approach. When you start pushing people to nail down a belief they hold be it religious or otherwise you quickly learn there is only mush underneath.

But you cannot defend your positions because you don't really believe them. That's why you are playing Humpty Dumpty games with us instead. You can't live up to your own harsh and impossible standards.

Relax, give it a break, and actually talk with people instead.

Edit: You also assume that if people don't tell you their reasons, they must have none. But of course they may not find you worth their time.

I don't remember who said "I have in my life believed a great many things, most of them wrong.". I can defend any position because i always assume the opposition may be right. I don't care about BEING right, only if the position i hold is right.

Is *this* why most religious folk have such a problem with self- um- education? It's all starting to make sense now...

I also think it's important for communities like this to not just sit around clapping each other on the back having a circle jerk all the time.

I say what I think and feel, and then listen to my interlocutor with the assumption that they're being earnest.

RE: You should apologize
I don't feel I need to apologize about anything to you. We only had a brief, relaxed encounter *shrug*

Only a few things I wanna say.

About your example conversation:
Per definition "atheists" in fact means you don't believe in a god (any god).
Agnosticism is when you don't know.
You can be an agnostic atheist > "I don't believe that a god exists but I don't know for sure"

Also why is this in politics even?

RE: You should apologize
I'm going to take a moment and appreciate the irony: A new poster lectures us on the dangers of a circle jerk. Meanwhile, it's fairly obvious that they are posting with one hand and straining the other patting themselves on the back. Drinking Beverage

You ladies (Julep, Aliza and Vera) bust my guts with your responses. Laugh out load I wish I was that good at repartee.
