No, to lack belief in the things for which I have insufficient evidence so far is not faith, it's reason.

If you are saying that to have religion requires that you must have faith, then I quite agree, but if you are saying that to have faith requires that you must have religion, then I cannot agree.

It is indeed slightly ridiculous to suggest those things - but who suggested them - certainly not me.

Though I have heard of some T-shirts indicating 'bright and proud of it' or some such nonsense.

The fact that your only atheist activity is on this forum, but that does not mean that away from the forum you are not an atheist, does it?

"DB says:
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.
Author: C.S. Lewis"

Me. Lewis might as well had said "No one can disprove that for which I only propose the existence of evidence for but am unable to produce said evidence.", yes?

"Bellatori

You would either
A have to be god
or
B to have all knowledge of all things. Omniscient

in order to prove that God does not exist.

Which is it? "

Wow. DB, please prove that I am not "God" (me, Khris777).

You can't; that doesn't mean there is any substance to my statement.

"Tom M says:

K. Atheism is just an un-intellectual..."

Tom,
Disclosure: I am assuming you are a Christian of some sort. In this enormous universe of hundreds of billions of galaxies, what exactly is intellectual about thinking you know that "God's" name is Jehovah, or that some tribals here on Earth 2000 years ago wrote "his" dictates down on paper? I am no hard core materialist (though I am open to the proposition that we are in a purely deterministic, mechanical and random "universe"), but believing that any of these religions here on Earth are 'TRUTH', there really isn't much intelligence there, at all. Any benefits derived form this certainty are not worth the cost in ignorance and silliness.

If there's 'more to it' (existence, the universe, whatever), you cant write it down or name it. The only evidence for a 'greater existence' would be personal experience or a shared experience of the miraculous, which a true intellect would still understand to be shaped by culture, existing believe, set/setting, etc. i.e., not 'the truth'.

Die-hard Atheists may not be using clear thinking, it's true; you cannot disprove.... well, much at all in the end. However, your argument doesn't back up the proposition you hold out, the proposition that certainty of believe in 'more to it' (or even 'kind of sure') is true intelligence.

Tell me your not a Christian or any type of monotheist and I'll take it back. No, I'm not here to promote any type of polytheism either - however, Hinduism for example seems at least to recognize that One God or Many Gods is mainly a matter of perception; i.e. Brahma (I think it is) is the 'One God', all the other are just 'aspects' of the one god, i.e. a particular way for believers in it to perceive those 'things'. To me this implies an inherent understanding of the influences I previously mentioned on belief and religious and/or spiritual experiences.

The most un-intellectual take on existence, due to lack of evidence to the contrary, is to completely discount the possibility that it there is nothing else going on and it's all over when its over. Logic and philosophy, as sound as it may seem at the moment, isn't evidence. Yes, it's worse than discounting the possibility that the Bible or the Koran or whatever is the truth.

By the way, why not share this superb apprehension of the intellect you refer to? Love to hear about it...

What's not homophobic (and moreover hateful) about your obvious lack of giving a cr-p about the obvious, which is that this increased rate of suicide is surely due to the freaking animalistic hatred from the majority of people on this planet, still mostly backwards, religion ruined upright walking apes?

Bellatori says:
You onviously missed my response

No Diane, I do not have to be. All I have to do is point out, as an ordinary mortal, that there is no evidence. You are claiming Hypothesis (H1) There is a God This automatically generated the nul hypothesis (H0) There is no God. Proof of H1 fails because there is no evidence therefore we accept the nul hypothesis, there is no God. Simples.

However, I am actually both omniscient and 'you know who' in disguise for a holiday. One needs the occasional break from perfection and these forums certainly provide that...

Wll now you have come to grips with Tom M (aka Paul Boire). You can now join in with the joy that is he. If you actually get a sensible answer start a new thread so we can all enjoy it...

Is it just a coincidence that "Boire" is an anagram of "I bore"?

Bellatori says:
It is also an anagram of Ibreo. What is that I hear you ask... it is a word that is meaningless and incomprehensible... no change there then...

In reply to an earlier post on 8 May 2013 15:18:39 BDT
And yours is an obvious anagram of Dante Fan - are you into the Infero?
