    Meaning you had no point. Nobody is surprised.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes, you do continue to dodge, but since you refuse to be honest about why you're concerned about beliefs, what can we expect?

    Re: Is atheism a religion

    I've noticed some atheists get REAL squirrely about if they believe that there is no god.

    Jesus, guys, it's your own opinion and you can't even verbalize (as it were, on an internet forum) it?

    Here's mine: I BELIEVE THAT I DON'T KNOW OR CARE ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THERE'S A GOD.

    Is it a religious belief, in that it's a belief about religion that isn't demographical? Sure.

    See how easy it was?

    Of course, that's not the question you asked. You're the one who is desperately trying to squirrel around the issue. The question at hand is "do you believe in a god?" Belief is an active state. You cannot inactively believe in something. The question is not "do you believe or do you disbelieve in a god?" So answer the question that is actually being asked. Do you believe in a god? If you do not actively believe in a god, then you do not believe in a god. Stop trying to weasel your way out of the actual answer to the actual question that is being asked.

    Yes it is. Ask me if I need to go back through the posts in this thread. I asked it at least twice.

    You're the one who is desperately trying to squirrel around the issue.
    I KNOW YOU ARE BUT WHAT AM I

    The question at hand is "do you believe in a god?" Belief is an active state. You cannot inactively believe in something.
    Uhhh...yes you can. I don't believe in unicorns.

    The question is not "do you believe or do you disbelieve in a god?"
    What? No, I'm pretty sure I just asked it. Please don't tell me what questions I can or can't ask. I'm asking "Do you believe that there is no god?" That's the question.

    So answer the question that is actually being asked. Do you believe in a god? If you do not actively believe in a god, then you do not believe in a god. Stop trying to weasel your way out of the actual answer to the actual question that is being asked.
    Why are you so mad? Calm down. Here, I'll give you a softball: Can you answer my previous question or can you not?
