    Nope.
    I personally believe those may have existed and may still exist. I have nothing to prove one way or the other.

    I'm an Agnostic. I'm open to possibility.

    Science =/= theism. Keep trying.

    IOW you like everyone else believes in Something that in the end you cannot define and is basically based on ..drum roll..faith.
    Atheists can have beliefs... Everyone has beliefs.

    iow not an atheist..an agnostic.
    Try to stay afloat next time.

    No you're not.
    You just said what YOU consider to be a deity.
    So you consider some things to be divine but just chose not to believe in it.


    I do not believe in Atheists and none of you here can or have proven you do not believe in anything.

    Well it's obvious you are a troll. We, as a people, have defined what a deity is. Since I do not believe in any deities, I am an atheist. Pretty simple to grasp, yet you are still struggling.

    I do not believe in Atheists and none of you here can or have proven you do not believe in anything.
    An atheist is not someone who believes in nothing. Everyone has beliefs. For example, I believe that I am a nice person. That hardly disqualifies me from being an atheist.

    Re: Scientists May Have Found How Life Began

    The Sun has been considered a deity.
    Dunno what you guys will do once you realize a Deity is not as simple as the definition your using.
    Well actually I do know..you'll reject it and continue claiming your atheists when your not.

    Anyway Atheists-
    I do not believe you. I do not believe you exist past the use of a word.


    As for my caring about meeting the favorable approval of people who declare themselves what they are not in order to bad mouth in numerous ways people who are religious..
    no thanks..
    I'll leave you guys in the septic tanks of your own self righteousness..in time it will fill and you will either get out like most do or drown in your own makings.

    Okay, well I don't believe in you. I think you are AI posing as a human. Since you cannot prove otherwise, I am right.

    So definitions prove you wrong and your response is that of a 4 year old going NUH UH. We got it. Thank you.

    Your belief means nothing. If you want to be ignorant by saying atheists don't exist, that is your right. It is like Iran's president saying there are no gays in Iran.

    And he's nuts. Enjoy your company.

    I believe in the beer in my hand. If somebody thinks its a god that doesn't make me a theist

    So you consider some things to be divine but just chose not to believe in it.
    I don't see how me not believing in things changes the fact that I'm an atheist. Seems to me that that is precisely what being an atheist is

    I do not believe in Atheists and none of you here can or have proven you do not believe in anything.
    I believe in my beer, alright. I just don't believe in any god. Ergo atheist

    Re: Scientists May Have Found How Life Began

    Its already been shown your faiths in Atheism come down to your preferred definition of what a deity is.
    Doesn't make you atheists ..makes you selective agnostics.

    Maybe next time some of you decide to use your preferred faith to bash others whose faith is accepted religion you'll realize how flimsy your own faith is.


    Shrug..I don't believe in you.... and boy did it sting.
