It's simple.
Like you.
Close.

A gnostic atheist "knows" there is no God.

Since this is something they can't know, there's no such thing as a gnostic atheist.

While all atheists may have beliefs, what they all have in common is that they do *not* have a belief in a god.

A very set of *specific* beliefs, relating to "Christ".

So what was your point, then?

Quite the contrary, a gnostic atheist is an atheist who believes that it is possible to know that gods do not exist.

It's pretty simple:

Agnostic theist - "I don't think we can know if there's a god or not, but I choose to believe in one."

Agnostic atheist - "I don't think we can know if there's a god or not, but I don't believe there is."

Gnostic theist - "I know for certain that there is a god."

Gnostic atheist - "I know for certain that there is no god."

Ok.

If that's the case, then there's no such thing as a theist.

Or a Christian.

Again...thank you.

I love it when you do my work FOR me.

You just may be on to something, with the word “hatheist,” perhaps it could be hatetheist or angryatheist. How about assholeatheist?

Why are these people always so angry?

Like someone shot their favorite horse or in the case of Catcher, his ass.

Yes Christians have stood in the way of science for centuries.

My analogy was spot on you just didn't like it. Werewolves vs Jesus? Never checked on werewolves go ahead go nuts half wit. Now Jesus vs Hercules? Jesus loses hands down for historical proof.

Are Christians trying to stop science for any reason?
Your analogy is flawed - as usual.
To you, I'd assume that Jesus is as fake as werewolves. Why then aren't you out there getting an anit-werewolf propaganda machine going?

Still humiliating yourself riverside retard? Christians believe in Jesus, Catholics believe in Jesus. You say Catholics are not Christians so you are indeed saying Catholics do not believe on Jesus no matter how much you stomp your feet and scream.

Question: What is the difference between Catholicism and Biblical Christianity?
