like MOST people who say they are "spiritual" but not religious, or believe in god but don't belong to any religion, she just took a religious cult's beliefs and melded them a tad bit.

According to Dictionary.com :
1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God.
2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

While I respect his extremely honest opinion, it does not correspond with the definition of a typical atheist. A fact I found to be...interesting.

When did I mention that I take the bible literally? I do respect the literature much like the Egyptian myth or the Buddhist teachings or the Taoist philosophy.

Your definition does not jibe with most nonbelievers today....but then nost of them do not call themselves atheists. just nonbelievers or freethinkers.

it is hard to disbelieve something that has no evidence whatsoever of ever existing. kind of like not believing in the easter bunny, people don't wake up everyday and poder if the bunny exists or not. it is a non issue. an old myuth that no rational person takes seriously or even thinks about much.

I am glad you found it somewhat funny.

I find it very amusing that people actually believe the story.

How did you arrive at the conclusion I was making fun of the story? I simply summed it up.

The definition I presented to you is not my own but that of dictionary.com 's. Feel free to not jibe with them. What you non believers call yourselves is up to you. Thanks for the update on the lingo, though. That which you spend your time pondering is also on you. The inner workings of your own personal mind is strictly a you thing. For people who don't think about that "old myth" very much, nonbelievers sure do debate it a lot.

Have you even been reading these forums? Ya'll debate all the time. Amongst each other as well as with we "religious cult people". You'll have to excuse me now. It's time to dance naked around the campfire while playing our bongos loudly and chanting.

Ah.
So we agree you have no evidence.
Of course, nobody has evidence other than current DNA. The question is in the math.

Me, I just doubt that the global distribution of humanity would be what it currently is without more than about 100,000 humans alive 10,000 years ago.

No need to get uptight! I'd rather see the mathematical assumptions before agreeing with those numbers.
