Prove to me that in theoretical physics that there is a 1 inch long equation that can describe every property of universe. You can't can you. Its because you don't understand it. And you don't understand god. How can you except to understand god when we have these evolved little monkey brains. The point is god is so powerful and advanced that will not be able to understand him. and its arrogant to think that you can. That's why you need faith.

The John being described still exists.
You would still exist if described as a taco.
This argument you are making reflects a second-grader's level of logic and reason.
If "John" is defined as a married bachelor, "John" cannot exist.

I'm sure any second-grader could grasp this. Why can't you?

Was that a joke or a serious attempt? This takes me back to my Compare and Contrast lessons from first grade. Apples and oranges are both fruits that grow on trees. Apples have a thin skin, while oranges have a slightly thicker skin. Pizza and couches can both be delivered to your house. Pizzas are often topped with cheese while couches rarely are. Radios and door locks can both be found in most cars. Radios receive radio transmissions while door locks usually receive keys.
You beat me to it.

I am impressed with your growth and with Juice's. Anybody that sees this activity as nothing but a time waster is oblivious to the incredible opportunity to learn here. There are a lot of insightful thinkers that are also talented writers posting here. Why else would so many bright people like you be drawn here repeatedly year after year? Imagine getting the attention of working professionals like Catcher and Hiding. How do they have time for anything apart from their work, and why do they give so much of the little extra time that they have to this if n ot because they consider it something special?

Red herring fallacy. We were talking about the words atheist and theist, why do you bring up my personal beliefs?
Because theistic deity belief is entirely subjective.

Each theist believes in the specific deity or deities he/she believes in based upon subjective evidence, and they have reasons for doing so. That's why I asked about your personal belief.

To illustrate this; what subjective evidence for a deity or deities is it that I should subjectively evaluate to believe there are deities or a deity?

Now, you are asserting that atheists have a belief or atheism is a belief.

Tell me what is it we are basing that belief on.

EEEEErroneous.
Atheists have no belief in deities.
You can beat the dead horse for as long as your strength holds up. It's not going to gallop.
Then tell scarscar to reword his "theists have a belief there is a deity".

Because if that's the case, then "atheists have a belief there is no deity".

Why would theism be a belief but atheism isn't? They're both -isms.

An alarming percentage of young people believe that it does.

That's a huge PR problem for Christianity that cannot be solved by clinging to denial.

My personal belief would not change anything regarding the definition of the word theist.

Nor does your personal belief change anything regarding the definition of the word atheist.
To illustrate this; what subjective evidence for a deity or deities is it that I should subjectively evaluate to believe there are deities or a deity?
I don't know. What subjective experience do you have that God doesn't exist? Never mind, it's subjective and, according to you, irrelevant.
Now, you are asserting that atheists have a belief or atheism is a belief.
Both.

Atheism is the belief that there are no gods.
Atheists believe there are no gods.
Tell me what is it we are basing that belief on.
I can't tell you what your beliefs are based on, you have to tell me that.
Sure it does.


No it doesn't. Why I am a theist has no bearing on the definition of the word theist. Why you are an atheist has no bearing on the definition of the word atheist.
But it's the same word in your analogy.
BTW...
You should avoid analogies.
So? Let's say that you really don't like pizza, does that change the definition of what a pizza is?
