Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent. Full Story

I think RR is a gnostic theist, which is a logical absurdity.
Yes... RR thinks he's a gnostic theist... and, that is a logical absurdity.

He claims to know there's a god.

Logic said bye-bye to RR a long, loooong time ago.

He chooses absurd certainty over uncomfortable uncertainty.~Voltaire... sort of~

An agnostic is a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God.
I am not agnostic, I don't have that belief.
You have ONLY belief.

You don't know there's a god, let alone what its nature is.

You're as agnostic as I am... in reverse.

Your not is not demonstrable.

Cool, what flavour?
Let's see...

Learned with Slackware... still my favorite. Vector Linux is a SW derivative. It's good too.

Red Hat's local; headquarters up the road. I have RHCSA/RHCE certs. Someone else paid for 'em... so, why not?

Usually go with CentOS for servers/server farms. It's just like Red Hat, without the branding. If not that, then it's Red Hat. Spending money gives some clients a warm-fuzzy feeling.

Fedora's on this laptop. Said a while back it was going bye-bye. It'll be Slackware, eventually.

Got into the habit of installing Kubuntu on others' personal computers (to replace Windoze).

Anything really old lying around gets Damn Small Linux.

Trying to get interested in Arch.

What else?

Oh...

Recently flashed a few Linksys routers with DD-WRT.

That's about it.

No...

Yeah.

That's it.

You?

HA HA HA !!!
You're the one trying to backpedal and weasel your way out of this. Your first sentence was "lights speed is constant."
That's not a lie, that's the truth. And you damn well know it.
Liar
Nope.

You're busted.

Case closed.

I never called you a liar, RR.

You called me a liar.

I didn't lie.

Also...

You're still ignoring the rest of the post you're referring to.

Read the post, the whole post, and nothing but the post... or stop bringing it up.

I have a collection. It's cool when the baby Jesus' head turns all the way around.

Notice how you ignored, virtually, the whole post... and latched onto that one little part of it.
I don't expect or even want an apology. The truth is, I'm about done with ya. You're nothing but a waste of time.
