#4838423 What do you think about the Revelation?

Posted by rozz666 on 21 July 2011 - 07:10 AM

But I am a programmer, not a theologian so I accept my use of terms may well be incorrect. I'm quite happy to accept A Brain in a Vat's point.

So, if not an atheist, what is the term for someone who positively holds the belief that there is no God? I must have dozed off during RE at school.

If you believe there is no god then you are an atheist. If you don't believe either way you are an agnostic.

If you believe god exists, you're a theist.
If you don't, you're an atheist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheist
If you believe there is no god, you're an antitheist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antitheist
An antitheist is of course also an atheist.

You don't know everything, and you certainly don't know if there is actually a Creator or not.

The burden of proof is on the one making a claim. So unless there's sufficient evidence that there is a creator being, there is not reason to believe there is one.

In short: You're not smarter or stupider than the average religious person, you just chose different. Don't forget that.

You say as if believing and not believing in god were equally valid positions, when they aren't.
However, I can agree that a person who believes in Flying Spaghetti Monster is the same as believing in Christian God, he just chose differently.

Why are we even discussing consequences of stories that have no scientific value and no evidence to support them?
Why not discuss Greek Mythology? It's a more interesting and less bloody that Christian Mythology anyways :-)
