True.
Adopting a position that requires re-definition of the terms being argued for is, well, at least flawed, and more likely fraudulent.
Taking that fraudulent proposition and then arguing the superiority of it is...how to put this tactfully...stupid.
Try not to pretend to believe you are influencing anyone towards your creationist cult by posting here, it is better for your fragile ego.

Its not the job of atheists to correct your mental illness for you.
No, Septic, you are the one who just now opened your snaggled mouth and lied about god, specifically, saying it had been "100% disproven".

The idea of "disproven" entails a burden of proof, same as the converse.

Now, truthfully, I don't expect you to understand this, Septic, you being the second dumbest person on Topix.

"Darwin's Stepchild" is the dumbest, so you have that going for you.

But you make it a horse race.

Then you need to admit it and be honest and stop lying about god being real.
You have the responsibility to society to not lie to them about something that is 100% disproven.

This is your mental illness and not shared by atheists.
<quoted text>
We pity your arrogant mental illness that rejects facts instead of ego.
Duh, I just admitted it, doofus. Never have I said anything different. As far as "100% disproven" and "not shared by atheists", those aren't anything but an opinion and a faulty yardstick by which you propose to measure success. Also, there is NO medical evidence that belief in God is a mental illness- therefore it is YOU who are pitifully wrong.

Its because you cannot prove your god, that you're here in the atheism forum trying to lie to us.

When you can prove your god, all your stupid made up sh*t will matter a whole not more. But not until you've proven it.

Belief in god is formally called a "delusion of reference".

That's talking to things that aren't really there and believing that they have some special significance to your life.

its also called willful ignorance, or just plain or old self-important stupidity.

Its also called "faith" something the best head docs in the world recognize as real but they can't pinpoint why some people need/use it and others don't.
It has nothing to do with ignorance or brilliance as both the ignorant and the brilliant believe in "faith".

"Formally" by atheists still is not a "Yardstick of success", sport. Sitting around the local dive and making this stuff up as you drown your braincells in alcohol isn't quite the thinktank you think it is.

Doesn't matter what name you give the mental illness of believing in things that are proven not to exist, that many people grow out of.

Given that it is your inner child that does not want to let santa go, your mindless creationist comments are to be ignored.

When you can prove your god like grown ups you will matter more

I'm sorry.

Was what I posted more than what your limited "education" could handle?

Well-- I did try to dumb it down to a 3rd grade level-- but clearly even that was more than you could understand.

Pity.

But your reliance on faith has destroyed your ability to learn.

Too bad.

I looked over that-- lots and lots of lovely excuse.

NO ACTUAL BIBLE VERSES, though. None that explicitly state man has free will-- a FACT that many of the bible-apologizers mentioned.

That was refreshingly honest of them-- they admit that the bible does not **explicitly** grant humans free will.

They then go on to use excuse after excuse-- all without bible support.

It's kinda pathetic to watch, really-- as they grew more desperate to "explain" why the bible does not support the idea of free will, and could not.

The **root** of their problem? The whole idea OF free will is TOO NEW!

It seriously is--- the bible is **older** than the whole free will meme-- it just did not exist when the bible was being cobbled together out of old, plagiarized mythology.

Free will, as an idea, came much-much later-- nearly a 1000 years later, if I remember correctly.

At least-- among people besotted by the bible's bullshyt.,

The Greeks likely thought of it before the bible's people did--but early christians threw out 99% of the Greek's best ideas....

... meh.

I do not like cheezeburgers.

But I can see you, sitting on your greasy, stuffing-coming-out easy chair, with your food-stained laptop resting on top of your gigantic fat-swollen beer gut.

As you sit in your beer stained underwear, and using a single finger, try to bang out your incoherient posts for Topix.

Does it take you 10? 15 minutes per post? I bet it does.

As you guzzle the el-cheapo "yellow-box" beer directly from the can, which likely still has 5 empties hanging onto it's plastic collar.

... which you then proceed to toss into the corner with the thousands of empties already piled there...

A cold pizza resting half-eaten in the box, sitting on a wobbly TV tray at your side, and the TV across the room blaring Faux Noise 24/7 in the background.

A single bare bulb provides dim illumination to your little rat's nest...

... yep. That's you in a nutshell.

No-- not the same thing at all.

Your mistake is a common one: you are conflating the many **different** meanings of the word "faith" into ONE.

That is just another way of lying, really.

Faith in the daily sunrise is based on a lifetime of experiencing daily sunrises-- and is easily justified because of that experience.

Faith in gods-- is based on? What? An ancient book written by bronze-age goat herders? That's no basis for **anything**!

Faith in science-- is based on **results**. Science produces **results**--- this computer, the very internet-- BASED ON SCIENCE, and the RESULTS of the scientific method.

There is a universe of difference between those two things.

Evidence-based faith is more akin to trust.

Faith based on nothing?(i.e. religion)? Is just wishful thinking.
