There's no such thing as an agnostic atheist. There can't be.
Out of curiousity, who told you that?

Or did you make it up yourself?

Excellent example my Dear Doctor. You're right even when you're wrong. Which might explain why you and Bob live alone for the most part. Your compatibility and getting along with others is certainly in question. Not that there’s anything with living alone. It works well for the ill tempered Badgers.

Did you know that medical science is doing research to see how the brain is wired. Could you image them doing Bob’s brain? They would find all the wires to his brain are negative.

Pfft.

That's a silly variant on the "tornado-in-a-junkyard-ma kes-a-747" argument.

Do you truly not know the difference between an electromechanical system and a biological one?

Biological systems chance all by themselves, you prat.

You do **not** get to dictate the meaning of words I use to describe myself.

In spite of your massive, bloated ego, and your massive pretensions of god-hood.

----------

One more time, since you are so dimwitted:

I do not have faith in gods. I am therefore? An atheist.

I do not think it is possible to know the entire universe-- wherein may exist gods of some sort. I am therefore? An agnostic.

To sum up:

I'm an atheist-agnostic.

Or, if you prefer, I am an agnostic-atheist.

Either way is accurate.

Your lie? Is not accurate.

No. I believe that Santa doesn't exist - he is a fairy tale, therefore there's nothing to be skeptical about.
False.

You need to look up the meaning of the word "skeptical"-- it does not mean what you think it means.

(this seems to be the case with most descriptive words...)

Are you skeptical of Harry Potter?
Of course! Harry Potter only-- so far as we know-- exists in some movies and some books.

So I am highly skeptical that Harry Potter is real-- outside of one's imagination, of course.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
You're skeptical of God, yes?
Again? Of course! There is 100% no empirical or objective evidences to show that **any** gods exist.

Including (and especially) your monster-bible-god.

And until you can muster up some of that? Facts, I mean?

Your god remains a myth.

That is not a matter of **faith**.

That **is** a simple matter of **observation**.

But.

My statement is valid-- in that faith itself, is unreasonable.

Thus?

Anyone who believes-- has faith without **any** shred of fact to base it on?

Is being unreasonable.

So my statement is factually correct: all believers [in gods] are unreasonable.

The subject [god], naturally, is implied due to the nature of this thread (atheism).

You are still batshit insane.

It's kinda cute, though, that you care enough to respond.

Old news.

Here's one of your own Liars For Jewsus website which disagrees with your lie:
" http://www.christianpost.com/news/the-number-... ;

Here's one that shows, by the actual **church** records themselves? That the majority of those answering the polls? WERE LYING.

It's what you Genuine Christians™ do best, after all: lie.
" http://www.churchleaders.com/pastors/pastor-a... ;

Here's the good old Wiki entry-- which also notes the world-wide decline-- with **references**
" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_attendanc... ;

Here's a Huffington post which also notes the decline:
" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/church-atte... ;

Another article which notes the general decline in attendance:
" http://community.adn.com/node/163751" ;

And finally? Here's a lovely GRAPH which shows the decline in **recent** years (as opposed to your 2008 survey)
