I guess there aren't many other libertarians... but are there any other atheists?
I'd say 85% of the frequenters of the PRSI are atheists. I don't know what to believe right now, I'm in a transitioning phase I guess.
To me, religion is fairytale nonsense
It breeds hatred and discrimination and we would be better off without all of them
I don't believe in life after death or any form of guiding force in the universe other than the laws of mathematics and physics. I also see organised religion as having a negative influence on humanity and planet Earth as a whole.
Does that mark me down as a Yes?
I often talk like an atheist, but I'm really an agnostic. I don't disbelieve in a God, or Gods or supranatural phenomenon. I just don't conclude that there is evidence worthy of satisfying any sort rational belief in any at this point in our pool of knowledge.
I bounce around as Agnostic and Atheist. I dont believe there is a god, but to be truthful, I dont really know.
They say not knowing is the beginning of wisdom, certainly seems to me that it is the foundation of truth. Accepting belief as a fixed mental condition and the universe as ever changing, face to face with the unintelligible how do you react with your heart or mind?
Belief in an omnid is not rational. That is not to say that it is irrational, per se, but the belief usually has an emotional base more than an intellectual one.
I know there isn't a god.
Make a list of all the gods/goddesses/deities being followed/worshipped/blamed in the past few hundred years. Pick 10 of those at random. Hand me the list of those 10 Supreme Critters.
Yeah, I don't believe those are really Deities. Even I myself outrank them..
I wouldn't call myself an atheist, but I guess technically I am one. I feel very spiritual at times and think certain parts of religion are good, just not the god bits and the organization of them, etc.
I was raised roman catholic, identify closely with buddhism, but practice nothing and have no doubts that there is no higher power.
This. I have completely lost all belief I was raised with. I was raised in a fundamentalist Christian family. I am gay and was disowned by my family for a period of time. After that, I looked at other religions in college. After studying them all, I realized that they were all nothing but a bunch of wishful thinking. Some had nice moral framework, particularly Buddhism, but other than that, complete legends and fairy tales.
There is still much we don't know about the universe. Religion does not have the answers, however.
It only causes more problems.
I see no good reason to believe that a god exists.
If you "know" you must have proof. If you have proof. please share it with us.
A more reasonable POV. Show me a good reason and I'll be open to changing my mind.
Eternity is overrated.
I know purple unicorns aren't in my closet also, I don't need to prove that because you say they are invisible.
Yeah but there's a book about unicorns so it must be true.
All you'd need to do is open your closet to prove that.
How do you propose proving there is no God?
Are you not a pastafarian?
If you wouldn't have clipped my post to spin it you would already have your answer. Just because you come up with an invisible entity doesn't mean I have to disprove it. The burden of proof is usually on the person making ridiculous assertions.
Yes. And you assume to "know" that something doesn't exist.
That is a pretty ridiculous assertion, if you ask me. The burden of proof is yours.

But was he certain it's ridiculous?
