That's so funny,-Skeptic- is again leaving his stamps on the posts.

I wonder what it feels like to be totally unable to present a logical argument due to lack of understanding and still cling to oppose.

That's called religious thinking by the way :)

Keep leaving the stamps, it shows me that you're reading the posts...

In your post you claim that scientists are more likely to be atheists. I disagree, rather I think it is far more likely that atheists prefer to be scientists.
I believe it was Richard Dawkins that said that Darwin made it possible to be "an intellectually fulfilled atheist." Would it be surprising, therefore, that those who are already predisposed to atheism (for whatever reason) gravitate towards a career in the sciences?
I think it goes both ways. Atheists in general might gravitate towards jobs in science, but also there are those within the religious community who take an interest in it as well and choose to go into a field of interest and I think as they learn more about it, more often then not they start to realize how inaccurate religion is.

Look, you came back with more opinions and assertions.. Once again your comments are void of logical argumentation.
You're a reality-denying YEC fundie who thinks people are hellbound for daring to disagree with your baseless religious opinions. Your dumbosity will always catch up with you.

29Nov12..........The son of da Reverend Jesse Jackson SR., Jesse Jackson JR. has resigned his senatorship withing the US of A senate. Jackson has indicated in his resignation that he has done some wrong things, but he is resigning mainly because he has been diagnosed as being Bi-Polar. Bullschidt. Jackson JR. is being investigated for corruption and things are 'heating UP'. Daddy won't gett'em OFF this time. Jackson JR. is the spawn of the biggest LIAR and Crook in the US of A and a former Black Panter to boot. Where in the hell did this pack of wolves get the untold millions that they have in the bank!!!!!....They most certainly do NOT have the education to have earned that amount legimately. BobLoblah wouldn't trust these maggots as far as BobLoblah could toss'em. Ps:....and may they rot in hell to which they so well belong. Forever and Ever BobLoblah

An atheist is anyone who lacks theistic belief.

I lack theistic belief.

Therefore, I am an atheist.

You are clearly wrong.

Wrong.

An atheist is identified by having a theistic belief - the belief that there is no god.

Having no belief gets you only to agnosticism.

If you lack theistic belief, as you say, though it is clear you are lying, then you are an agnostic, not an atheist.

Gnosticism addresses knowledge, theism addresses belief.

Agnostic: lacking knowledge.

Atheist: lacking belief.

Nope, agnosticism isn't about "belief", it's about *claimed knowledge*.

I may be an agnostic atheist, but I'm still an atheist.
