You missed "belief that no god exists" and "doctrine that there is no god".

If you learned to read, these exchanges would be far more efficient.

Then I would only have to prove you wrong once instead of twice.

This is where you have a problem, ole Buck. Everything is moving. If you are either on a planet, you are most likely rotating that planet's own axis. In a solar system, you are orbitting a sun at a set speed. If you are in a galaxy, you are orbiting a suoermassive black hole at a massive speed. If you are outside a galaxy, you are part of a massive universal expansion.
Now comes your imaginary traveler an light speed. Relative to what is he moving? What about time?
No shit? The earth is rotating? Wow.

None of that is relevant to the speed of light traveling finite distance.

But thanks for the space-fillage.

And there are no black holes.

You are a blithering moron. Address me only when you have a coherent thought.

Hello, there. Been quite a while. Hope all are doing well.

So has any actual proof been presented as evidence of the existence of any God yet? Or is there still only faith to rely upon to justify such belief?

I don't have a belief that no god exists.
I simply don't believe any supernatural crap.
No, you do believe no god exists.

Sometimes you're even honest about it. This just isn't one of those times.

If you are a lawyer, I accept that any honesty might be inadvertent.

You don't know what you're talking about.
Both parties have moved to the left.
John Kennedy would be viewed as a far-right winger today, and could not get the nomination of the democrat party. Probably too conservative to be nominated as a republican.
He slashed marginal income tax rates.
That would have him drummed out now - "Tax cuts for the rich!"
If you refer to politics in the US, the general consensus among political scientists, history scholars, etc is that our institutions have moved to the right, not the left. A couple of things that show this is Clinton's caving and signing DOMA and DADT as well as Obama's caving like a tomato can to the hard right Republicans in most every instance. Plenty other examples, too.

Also, there are conservatives and liberals in both major parties, always have been, just like there are extremists in both parties. Personally, I don't support either major party. Only allowing two viable options is a sales tactic used to control the "buyers," or in the case of politics, the voters.

<quoted text>Atheism is not a lack of belief.

It is a belief - that no god exists.

Atheism, from the Greek a-theos ("no-god"), is the philosophical position that God doesn't exist. It is distinguished from agnosticism, the argument that it is impossible to know whether God exists or not (Academic American Encyclopedia).
Atheism, system of thought developed around the denial of God's existence. Atheism, so defined, first appeared during the Enlightenment, the age of reason (Random House Encyclopedia).
Atheism is the doctrine that there is no God.(Oxford Companion to Philosophy).
Atheism (Greek, a-[private prefix]+ theos, god) is the view that there is no divine being, no God (Dictionary of Philosophy, Thomas Mautner, Editor).
Atheism is the belief that God doesn't exist (The World Book Encyclopedia).
Atheism, commonly speaking, is the denial of God. Theism (from the Greek theos, God) is belief in or conceptualization of God, atheism is the rejection of such belief or conceptualization.In the ancient world atheism was rarely a clearly formulated position (Encyclopedia Americana).
Atheism, the critique and denial of metaphysical beliefs in God or spiritual beings. Atheism is to be distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open whether there is a god or not, professing to find the question unanswerable, for the atheist, the non-existence of god is a certainty (The New Encyclopedia Britannia).
According to the most usual definition, an atheist is a person who maintains that there is no godÂ…(rejects eccentric definitions of the word)(The Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
Atheism is the doctrine that God does not exist, that belief in the existence of God is a false belief. The word God here refers to a divine being regarded as the independent creator of the world, a being superlatively powerful, wise and good (Encyclopedia of Religion).
Atheism (Greek and Roman): Atheism is a dogmatic creed, consisting in the denial of every kind of supernatural power. Atheism has not often been seriously maintained at any period of civilized thought (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics-Vol II).
Atheism denies the existence of deity (Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia-Vol I).
What YOU wrote, was dismissed on the basis of Encyclopaedias having more credibility than you.

Show me on the text you copy pasted, where I missed "belief that no god exists".

I didn't miss this one:

"Atheism is the doctrine that God does not exist, that belief in the existence of God is a false belief."

I also don't believe you understood the text you posted and I am skeptical as to whether you even read it properly.

I think there's a possibility that you did read it.

I do not think that there is a possibility that your deity exists in reality.

Nope.

I have no belief in gods one way or the other.

I simply reject the concept of the supernatural.

And yes, I am an attorney, licensed to practice in the courts of several states, and in the federal courts too. No ifs or buts about it.

And the next time you make your silly comments about atheism being a religion, the court you're talking about is the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

You have been omitting the U.S.

Get it right.

None of it's particularly original, but that's the best way I can put it together.

Please note, though: I wrote "atheist's" on purpose - singular, not plural. I'm not speaking for atheists in general.

God exists to those that can hear his truth. If you unable to hear the truth of God he must not exist to you.

Are you confident that God or a supernatural being like God does not exist?

If yes, that's a belief. If no, then why waste your time arguing? Either way you come out looking very foolish.:)

Thanks for playing...

His analysis of religion fits perfectly today's liberalism.
It is destroying the nation.
Interesting. How do you reconcile that with the fact that liberals built this nation? The Constitution and DoI are two of the most liberal documents of their times, and they built our federation, a liberal democracy in the form of a constitutional republic which operates under the principles of liberalism.

Extremists in our right wing are destroying the country with their fascist tactics and refusal to debate, made clear by their absolute disdain for the proper workings of a filibuster, unless it isn't an actual filibuster then like Cruz, they read Green Eggs and Ham to us, wasting our tax dollars at the same time as hijacking the floor for personal gain only, not for the good of the country as a whole. Those kind of politicians aren't satisfied with running the country based on constitutional law as a liberal democracy, like it was meant to be from its inception, and seem to want to revert back to the AoC, which didn't work well the first two times; though they CLAIM to uphold the constitution, they undermine it at every turn.

Extremists of any kind will always be quite confused due to their total dependence upon an ideology given to them rather than thinking for themselves. This is true of both sides' extremists. Only the hard right authoritarians reminiscent of Stalin and Goebbels are a danger to our representative republic, because the leftists extremists don't have nearly as much money, thus, not enough power to be such a threat, yet.

Atheists best spokesman Pat Robertson has once again assisted us atheists to see into the heart of a godbot and understand just how soulless they are.

Talking about the recent death of Robin Williams, Pat says:

“You see these very popular people in the media who commit suicide like Robin Williams recently and you say, what is the deal with him? What happened?” Robertson said on “The 700 Club.”“You see, the god of the heathen are idols and everything that you seek in life can ruin you unless that somebody is God himself.”

“You won’t want to commit suicide after you have come to him,” he concluded.

Gee, no Christian has ever committed suicide?

Damn heathens....

There is no such consensus. You made it up.

DOMA is history, Obama orchestrated the largest new liberal entitlement program since Roosevelt against the sentiment of the majority of citizens. The Supreme Court has slapped his administration down over ten times for over-reaching the Constitution. His attorney general is suing states who want to require voter ID even after the Courts have upheld it in multiple states. Abortion is being funded by taxpayers, which is a violation of federal law. State after state is legalizing gay marriage. Spending and the size of central government is being extended, to the tune of a 20 trillion dollar debt by the time Obama's term is over. We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world, and the military is being downsized, with soldiers getting pink slips on the battlelfield. We are paying for a prisoner to have a sex-change operation. The IRS has targeted conservatives and attempted to cover it up with, so far, nobody being fired. Eric Holder swore a warrant to a judge to have Fox reporter James Rosen's parents spied on, and lied under oath to Congress about running guns to Mexico.

Teachers are sending students to detention for saying "Bless you" in response to a sneeze.

Sure. Tell me about the rightward shift.

You are a fucking idiot.

Classic liberalism in the sense of the founding has no relation to modern political liberalism.

Today's liberalism only began to exist with Woodrow Wilson, and was exacerbated through Roosevelt, then with Johnson. It is socialism in its essence.

The founders asserted strict constructionism on the Constitution, allowed prayer in public schools, insisted on states rights and federal powers being "few and enumerated", and prohibited a federal income tax.

Sound like today's liberalism? No. It is more conservative than today's conservatism.

Don't try this shit with me.

"Atheism is the belief that God doesn't exist (The World Book Encyclopedia)."

Does this say atheism is a belief, or the absence of belief?

No, on second thought, don't answer.

You are dumb, and you are dismissed.

Study and come back in 2 years.
