I can give you his reply before he does.
It will be a dodge based on word-meanings.
He will say that "atheism" means only rejecting specific god-claims, and is therefore, consistent with skepticism.
His argument will rely on the mischaracterization of the two main terms in the discussion.
Getting off the hook, to him, is simply a matter of controlling the vocabulary.
It's a common rhetorical trick. Propagandists use it all the time.
So you have a god in your pocket?
So sadly you will keep it to yourself, can you jerk it off?
Did your god come?
I think not.

.. consider this ..
.. do you have a dog ??..
.. if so, do you think your dog loves you ??..
.. is that faith or belief ??..
.. you have me thinking ..
I don't have a dog, I have a cat.

And your question depends on several things-- are dogs capable of love as we humans experience the emotion? Or is it something similar?

Without actually scanning the brain of the dog with a Science Fictional machine, to see what the dog is experiencing?

We cannot say one way or another.

But.

There are certainly many similarities to the behaviors of dogs, and the behaviors of humans who say they are in love.

Many, many similarities-- too many to just dismiss the dog's behavior as simply that of an animal.

It could be helpful to remember that both dogs and humans are **mammals**, and both ultimately share an ancestor back in the past.

As such, it's hardly surprising that mammals share similar instinctive drives (such as "love") that would manifest in a strongly similar way.

I knew I was going out on a limb.
I was not in possession of the offical Topix Atheist definition of "non-christian".
I took a chance. I might have just used "non-".
But I was feeling bold.
Dr. Ehrman, the article mentioned, is an "agnostic".
I steered clear of that one - who knows what the hell that means.
Worse, we might have to suffer through the explanation of it with words like "prescriptive lexicography".
I know what that one means - "nothing".

You crawled out on a limb over the river and sawed it off.
Now you are going for a ride.

Huh...
I had a dream last night.
You probably did, too.
But they're not real?
Go figure.
They only exist in the imagination.

Babies would be sufficent proof to show your monster-god actually care.

But since we both know your god DOES NOT care?

Dreams are very real.
They exist.
Without evidence.
Nope.

Dreams have no more reality than the characters in a comic book do.

Or the horrid, uncaring, baby-killing monster-god you believe in.

None of that is **real**.

All the negative jugits on my posts.

It's so funny, I've shared this with others, elsewhere.

They think it's hilarious too.

As opposed to ReThugs, who are against any and all programs that do not support their own intense *greed*

The modern ReThugs: the party of the most intensely felt **greed** in centuries.

I'd rather have the DemoWimps, even without their backbone.

You deleted 90% of my post.

I made a point to you that you obviously didn't like.

You're nothing but a troll.

Go to a titty bar, dude.

LMMFAO!!
The atheists get to redefine shit, why can't we?
Democrat: Those who vote based on irrelevant factors (gender, race, charisma, et cetera).
"As a Democrat, I voted for Barrack, because we need a black man in the White House."
As opposed to ReThuglicans, who **only** vote to give themselves **more** ill-gotten money.

The party of **greed**-- that describes your typical ReThug.

I find it amusing that the bible's Jesus would so not be a ReThuglican.

He'd likely not much care for DemoWimps either-- but you **know** he'd be against the ReThug attempt to take rights from people.

Jesus commanded his followers to **feed** the hungry, to **help** the homeless, to **doctor** the sick.

But the ReThugs? They are **against** all of that....

... at least the DemoWimps are **for** helping the needy.
