Uyboco: Belief, unbelief and that little comma in between

Ask a Muslim if he believes in God and he will say yes as well. Ask a Hindu if he believes in God and you still get a yes.

"To a Christian, a Muslim is an atheist because he doesn’t believe that Jesus is God. Most people are atheists with respect to Zeus because practically no one believes in him anymore.

Richard Dawkins, a biologist and self-proclaimed atheist, says "We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further."

Theists cannot agree among themselves so why should we accept their statements as truths?

What amazes me is that they don't understand the simple logic about how they themselves are atheists as well.

I disagreed with the author's statement:

"Strictly speaking, atheism is a statement of belief. A theist believes in some sort of god. An atheist doesn’t."

And

"Agnosticism is a statement of knowledge rather than belief."

I think that atheism is both a statement of NON-belief AND knowledge. Agnosticism, to me, is a polite, less offensive way to declare that same statement of nonbelief and knowledge...maybe on a smaller, less passionate scale.....

I agree. Agnosticism is just a more cautious version of atheism.
