I agree, but it's here for people who are religious or those who want to make a debate anyways.
Maybe thiests will sign up sometime.
Yeah, I guess. Well, we'll see how it goes. It just seems a little ridiculous to have a section with a couple of theists and then a dozen atheists. I hate that lopsided reality of the internet.
We'll see how it turns out. I may just post my rants about the failures of the contemporary atheist movement and many of the atheists writing popular texts and see what happens with that. Sometimes I just like to stir stuff up.
atheist but if someone gave some real proof of a god (or even a pretty good mockup of one) id reconsider. im not too hot on the silly (or scary in some cases) traditions and rules of religions but my stance on atheism is less a grudge against the concept of religion and more a resignation due to the lack of any proof. might as well believe in the flyign spaghetti monster as allah or yahweh.
Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
I don't know why the only debate here has to be theist vs atheist, 'does god exist' or whatever.
You have can any number of debates between 2 atheists and between 2 theists. For example 2 atheists could argue whether morality is relative, or where the tenants of logic come from, whatever. I was hoping this section could also accommodate philosophical debates.
And, if we're doing a survey, I'm not really anything. I certainly don't believe in the gods as conventional religions has them.
You can put me down. I was pursuant of philosophy/theology degrees before my IT job turned into a career. I'm fairly classicly trained and can argue any side of this if we are doing it for fun. Just tell me what side you want me on. In the meantime I'll share one of my favorite quotes.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
As for the debates, it does not have to be atheist vs. religious. It is any part of religion you wish to debate. Knowing whether or not a person is Atheist or Theist helps you understand where they are coming from better, and if you do want to debate them on that subject (is God real or is he not), you can do so much easier this way.
