So you are claiming to have induced theism into all those people who are free of theisms? How did you get it into newborns? Who are after all, as purely atheist as any one can be.

Atheism is the lack of theism.
The "A" means not.

Damn, I can almost hear you sobbing to your Mum, "I told them, they are dead, I told them I killed them and they just won't die. Mummy please make them die, make them die. I want them to die". LOL!.

So, why don't you just put on your big girl panties and quit whining, you got spanked. Deal with it.

Atheism is the lack of theism.

If atheism is an absence of theism, therefore atheism is nothing, like the blank slate of the baby's mind.

If atheism is lack/absence of theism, just as darkness is the absence of light, so also is atheism nothing substantial, as darkness is positively non-existent.

Babies are not blank slates. They are incredibly intricate little people, who are busy absorbing info at a prodigious rate, both before and after being born. They are atheist because they have not been indoctrinated.

Everything else is there and working fine, but no theism has fouled the babe's mind. In fact that is exactly what all atheist are, they are those people who are un-indoctrinated. Atheism is the lack of theism. The "A" means not.

Yeah, you are attempting to destroy a non-thing. As baldness is the lack of hair, atheism is simply the lack of any theism.

All humans are born atheist, and if somehow you see newborns as religious, I'd have to say, that you just may not be paddling the boat with both oars.

The only way we'd stop calling ourselves atheist or kind of "ist"(watch south park S10 Go God Go and Go God Go XII)

Atheists/normal will exist as long as there stil is religion. But when religion will be gone will there no need to be called atheists either, and the rest would be normal become normal

Bestial = beast like
Bestiality = sex with animals

The addition of the suffix changes the meaning.

Tip: When using a dictionary to look up the meaning of a word, you need to find the word in the dictionary spelled exactly the same as the word you want defined. Don't settle for a word that seems to have the same root, or is spelled differently. The results will not be so good if you do.

That explains a lot. Your writing might improve if, besides being spelled correctly, the words you used were the ones that actually held the meaning you intended to convey, and not the third cousin of the right words. As it is, it appears that you compose posts by tossing a dictionary into a food processor.

Also, some actual thought would help.

Well most humans are born absorbing knowledge like a sponge, and if they are lucky they never lose that ability.

Babies are not foolish, but it seems that you are, and I'd hazard a guess as to it being a completely voluntary thing for you. To become someone other than an atheist one must be indoctrinated. The "A" means not, as in not a theist.

Before one becomes Vodun, one is atheist.
Before one becomes a Satanist, one is atheist.
Before one becomes a Muslim, one is atheist.
Before one beomes Morman, one is atheist.
Before one beomes a Moonie, one is atheist.
Before one becomes a Sceintologist, one is atheist.
Before one becomes an Hooting Hollering Holy rolling Appalachian Snake Handler, one is atheist.

From Whirling Dervish to Devil worshipper, indoctrination is the key, until then ........ all are atheist.

Being indoctrinated into any one of the 40,000 or so religions makes you no longer an atheist.

Atheism is the lifeless shadow cast behind by the positively existing theism, in an exact similarity to the positively existing light and its shadowy darkness. In other words, theism and its negative, i.e. atheism, can be likened to gas and its exhausts.
LOL! Sacrificing babies to a blood thirsty volcano god is a positive, marrying 8 year old girls to 60 year old men is a positive, and not doing these things is a negative. You were right, you are a fool.

Gas and its exhausts? No it can't, for there to be exhaust there has to be gas. Liken it to no gas ever being involved, for atheism is not the screwed up side of theism, but the absolute void of any type of theism. There cannot be a negative of that which does not exist. Maybe you should learn what an atheist is before claiming that you have defeated them.

A lexicographer who never reads dictionaries? Who uses "polysyllabic" as though it meant possessing multiple meanings instead of multiple syllables? Whose usage is comically awkward so often that his writing is described as "word salad"? This is the most preposterous claim jide oni has made yet. Next he'll be telling us that he is a professor of English literature!

Jedi Onan is not a lexicographer. He is a practitioner of the pseudo science of predicting personality traits from handwriting.The words mean nothing to him, only the shape and size of the letters used to write the words. Just as in his postings here, the words he uses are carelessly chosen, with no regard for their meaning, only how they sound together. His posts are full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

If atheists are ignorant of the perfect intelligence that sustains existence, they must at the same time be ignorant in the opposite direction, i.e.equally ignorant of the non-existence of the perfect intelligence.
If atheism is merely a lack of god-ism, then atheism is a mere absence/nothingness.
If atheists say no to theism, neither are they saying yes to anything else.
If atheism is a mere negation of theism, then it does not qualify to enjoy any independent autonomy of a school of thought - no platform, no anchorage, simply a faceless cohort of intellectual 'rasdicals' without any clearly defined identity.

APPARENT NATURAL INJUSTICE DISSECTED
Everything balances up with every other thing, thanks to the ever-dynamic presence of the Law of Balance.
The Law of Economy of Life(Death) also throws its weight to bear in the dispensation of natural justice of reincarnation by preventing a sower from reaping when the bodily constitution is too weak from old-age etc. to enjoy the bounties of nature.
In such a situation, death will occur just exactly as night sleep covers up the eyes of the arduous worker, that he would wake up the next morning to be served first-thing-first his missed supper of the previous night.(Conversely, where he, who consumed another person's supper in addition to his, will go without breakfast the next morning.)
and this, finding its correspondence in the life-long willing-sacrificer whose out-worn eyes are also covered with the hand of death, so that in his next incarnation, readily would he start early in life harvesting the fruits of his previous incarnation labor without any sweat whatsoever.

THE LAW OF BALANCE (lll)
The law of evenness stabilizes all things in the universe, such that there is no increase or decrease of anything in nature.
The water element, for example, in its various forms as rain, erosion, streams, rivers, oceans, vapors, clouds, urine, spittle, tears, phlegm, mucus, sweat, lymph, saliva, blood, foods, plants, animals, humans etc., maitains its constant volume from eternity to eternity.
Except that it manifests in various forms listed above in varying proportions.
If whatever decreases here must naturally increase elsewhere. and what increases here must decrease elsewhere, then both increase and decrease even each other out after all.
There can only be increase or decrease if the vacuum created by the decrease is not filled up by its proportional increase in space; and if the excess built up by the increase is not compensated for somewhere else in space.
Increase and decrease can be likened unto pulling and pushing. filling and emptying, standing erect and lying down, going...

The only way you can gain converts to nonsense like this is to go out and inflict serious head trauma on everyone you encounter. Some small portion of those you injure may sustain enough damage to the portions of the brain controlling critical thinking to be susceptible to believing this gobbledegook.

You offer no proof of the truth of your assertions. Atheism is the refusal to accept any belief that is not supported by evidence. Neither you nor traditional theists produce any evidence to support your claims. The traditional theists have an advantage over you in that they at least posit their assertions in terms that are comprehensible, though not credible.
