That is in interesting arbitrary claim you have made there....
There are no tenets of atheism. All atheism is is the lack of a belief in god.

NO, atheism is the belief that there is no god.

"Atheism, from the Greek a-theos ("no-god"), is the philosophical position that God doesn't exist. It is distinguished from agnosticism, the argument that it is impossible to know whether God exists or not" (Academic American Encyclopedia).

Clearly we aren't atheists then. Just call us nonbelievers.

Wrong, atheists adhere to the doctrine of dishonesty and speciousness. That's just a small sampling of their tenets. You may have even noticed most typical topix atheists post responses using the word "we".

Really, maybe you could give some examples of this rampant atheist dishonesty.

Spring may have finally sprung in the Plains. The hummingbirds are here, the trees are green, and I have a veritable plethora of pretty birds gathering at my feeders. One odd thing this year, though. Some of the birds are ravenous for sweets. They have taken to hitting the hummingbird feeders to get a drink. With 3 bird baths close by. These are some dirty birds. Never seen them so obsessed with sugar water.

Its axiomatic, if you've been reading the thread.

The ontological argument for god which you spammed hundreds of times on here has been easily destroyed and can just as easily be used against the proposition of god's existence.

Again you cannot assign attributes and deeds to this god until you have demonstrated said god exists. Presupposing god exists does not count.

<quoted text>So you reject ontology?

You see no value in discussing ontology?

In fact it is of such little import in your mind it only deserves mockery?

Does not that show a limit to your intelligence when you consider ontology not worth discussing?

I was actually engaging in an epistemological argument however...

So you do not even know what atheism is. Until you have that basic understanding no intelligent conversation can be had with you.

Is that what you call shoving food in your mouth at the buffet? Using the fork to lift all the fried food in?

Lol!

In other words, you were being dishonest.

Well, since what you stated is not a doctrine, then you have demonstrated that you are a liar.

Not just a liar, but a egotistical projecting fundamentalist christian liar, who has little moral compass or ability to question religious dogma. There is more to his fallacy but this is enough to disdain and reject the diatribes of the Bongo philosophy.
