Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

No problem. But first provide one that proves that matter exists outside of the minds of humans. I can prove that time exists to the same level of proof. I simply want to see your standard.

After reading your previous response, I'm going with all three and adding THREE more to the pile--obsessive compulsive disorder, control freak (emphasis on freak), and attention deficit disorder.

Want to go all in and reveal some more mental/personality disorders to add to the pile, bubba?
Thank you for admitting that you find pedophilia to be morally right.
You really are the scum of the Earth :)

Those are your words--your straw man--not mine.

Time--also geometry, algebra, numbers, words, language, etc--are ALL mental constructs. We humans invented them. None of them exists in the real world. The only "existence" they have is in the minds of humans.
So in your mind you're never going to age?
Now I see why you think pedophilia is right; you don't understand age.

Maybe they're told she'll get to re-materialize in Muslim heaven as part of a 72 pack 'o virgins. Wouldn't that be a hoot?!?
You seen me ask 3 times to just copy/paste that pedophilia is wrong, and yet Zit can't.
It's like asking me to say I believe in a god.

I don't believe in a god and Zit believes pedophilia is right.

I can't believe that you just said that.

Really? Better than a link to prove that matter exists outside of the minds of humans, how about you jump off your roof or any roof?

That snap, crackle, crunch sound you hear when you reach the end of your descent is your body interacting with the matter outside your mind, bubba.

Get it?

Now, post a link that proves time exists....

And it takes time to fall. So time exists outside of the mind.

All that proves is you've used the mental construct of "time" to describe the interval between the launch and the (crash) landing of your jump.

One mississippi, two mississippi, three....splat!

Time isn't real. It isn't energy, matter, or a force that can be manipulated or controlled to avoid the inevitability of splat! after launch. Time is just a mental construct used by humans for measurements and predictions. That's all it is.

my reply to this post was 56 minutes in duration from you hitting the send button....

that's called 'time'. It is something real which I cannot manipulate, I cannot choose to go back and reply 36 minutes after you hit send, time is real.

You have a finite duration from your birth to your death, you cannot live again, the duration from birth to death, or simply between intervals is denoted by the descriptor 'time'.

You can tell me where something is in the universe using euclidean co-ordinates, I'd like you to tell me 'when' something is without the use of 'time'.

That makes no sense If your saying that time doesnt exist then a fall and landing would exist simultaneously. Yes man invented the word time and the instruments that measure time but they did not invent time.

Cowards with no proof of god who don't understand science should learn when to shut the f*ck up and stop embarrassing themselves.

You said:

"....the duration from birth to death, or simply between intervals is denoted by the descriptor 'time'."

And you said it all right there in that sentence. Time is indeed a "discriptor". It's a communication tool like an adjective or adverb. It's a measuring tool like a yardstick or a sextant. It's a very useful tool, perhaps one of the most useful tools humans ever invented but it's usefulness doesn't change the fact that it's only a mental construct invented by humans. It doesn't exist outside the human mind.

So your saying the duration between the 2 intervals does not exist? Your also saying its a useful tool used for measuring but it doesn't exist much like the yardstick which also clearly doesn't exist?

No, the 'interval' between the two *is* the 'time' between the two. it is an interval *in time*.
One mississippi, two mississippi, three....splat!

This is wrong. In fact, time can be affected by energy and matter as shown by relativity and proven by actual observations. You also seem to be confusing gravity (the force that makes you fall) and time (the interval of the fall).

No, it is something that we construct tools to measure. We also construct tools to measure space, mass, charge, etc. All of these are physical things that we measure through our tools. But don't confuse the tools we make for the physical things we are measuring.
