When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

Yeah, where is it? Nothing is evidence to you. This is your forum so provide some evidence. If you want to debate my accountable position of something vs your nothing make your case.

All you loons are simple bigots. Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

But you quote the Daily Mail - a publication known for its propensity to mislead.

Prof Dawkins didn't 'admit' being an atheist. He hasn't claimed to be anything else. Like me perhaps, it probably doesn't bother him if people wish to think of him as an atheist or an agnostic. Atheist & agnostic define people in terms of religious beliefs in god(s), of which he has none.

He clearly doesn't believe in any Abrahamic god(s). Nor any of these..

I think the point he tries to make is that whether one is religious, agnostic or atheist one would accept the existence of a god if it was proven scientifically, beyond a reasonable doubt. Such evidence doesn't exist. And further, that in the absense of such evidence, such beliefs are at best superstitious. At worst they are delusional, divisive or even dangerous.

The scientific standard you subscribe to has meant nothing in this arena is evidence to you. Fine, move on. A forum about nothing isn't necessary.

Of course you need to go further and attempt to marginalize belief using the term superstition. Faith can be reasoned. In fact, belief in a higher power can be completely reasonable from many perspectives in and out of science. Does it meet your standard LOL. Of course not. Nothing does.

What is ridiculous is the nothing you loons keep trotting out. Shall we compare your nothing to my something? You can't. Your forum is filled with intellectual cowards.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

Wow! You're rattled, aren't you?

Religion = superstition
Relax and get over it...

"..I began to question everything. In hindsight, losing my virginity was a breeze. Losing my religion took me a whole year to get over!..." Unquote.

Religion gets people into such a muddle. People don't 'lose faith', they see religious faith for what it is - superstition. That's all.

I also can't be 100% certain that there are not fairies at the bottom of the well in my garden who are keeping everything growing. But the idea is still too absurd to warrant serious consideration.
And yet, you are willing to accept the ludricrous idea that life came from dead matter!

At least there's SOME evidence that biological evolution is real. No matter how tenuous it is, it's still a far cry more evidence than there is for a magical **poof** from an invisible sky deity.

You are reading things into the article that aren't there.

The ludicrous idea that nothing exists unless it is first studied and confirmed by science is likewise delusional and devisive.

There are many reasons why people call themselves atheists. In your case, your irreligious zealotry masks a fear of hell.

No, you obviously don't know what an ad hominem is.

My post was still a statement directed to the content of the post, not to the person.

An ad hominem is an attack against the CHARACTER of person.

SOME evidence is enough to convince you that evolution is real and yet you have the gall to demand absolute evidence that God is real.
Your logic is rather skewed.

It is also "appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect." The word hogwash is your personal prejudice.

I'm certain god does not exist. If he did, there would be evidence of his existence. So much evidence, we wouldn't be having this debate.

Hey digitaldan! These atheistic loony's will try to block your posts if you challenge their fairy tales. That's how easily threatened they are by common sense.

Art is an act of the soul, not the intellect. No famous artists were atheists and most notable modern artists are agnostic primarily because of their close association with inexplicable inspiration. They knew and still know from personal experience that inspiration is not a product of the brain, but something that exists outside of it. They regularly tap into a stream of impressions that flows beneath the surface of normal consciousness.

Thanks for the warning. I'm quite familiar with the tactics of the delusional. I've got my tricks too. This isn't my first Topix rodeo.

Atheism is just another word for fatalism.
