Im sorry john, perhaps you could explain why asking I believe - as an antitheist, would stump me?Unfortunately, many atheists are antitheists. Foreshadowing where this thread will end up I'll ask a simple question. What position are defending? Disbelief is not belief, and mocking religion/God is usually the response to a simple question. Stump an antitheist! Ask him what he believes.
I could offer you two concepts that might have escaped you. A-theism. of course, is an absence of a belief in gods - and only gods. Atheists are free to believe in flying kettles around saturn.
In matters biblical however, I "believe" in the fundamental assumptions of reality - i.e. that we exist, and that the world exists. Of course if I did not, life would be short.
I don't even "believe" in logic - it's a nonsense application of the concept. Logic is a tool, it's irrefutably demonstrated to work - it WORKS - that is not a belief, that is a fact.Is it the BEST tool? we can't know - but we do know it's the best tool we have.
So john, my cards are on the table, you know what I believe. I do not enjoy your headgames I see here - so how about you demonstrate some intellectual honesty?- what do you believe?
