    No one ever answered it. If they did, they didn't quote me.

    Anything else is a flat lie. It's a yes or no question.

    The inability to answer it is extremely telling. Lying? Even more so.

    I believe there is no god. I believe there are no Sleestaks. I believe there is no Loch Ness monster.

    If you were to put on a blind fold and click on a page in this thread at random there would be a post answering your question.

    This is wrong. Simply saying something doesn't make it so.
    Do you believe that there is no god?

    Your question sounds like a set-up.

    lol

    1- For what?
    2- Even if it was, what a crappy way to debate: "I think I won't like your response to my answer, so I won't answer this straightforward question!"

    Thank you for being better than that.

    That's why I made the other poll. His argument is completely idiotic in that it devalues religion to the point that rejection of wearing Orange Socks on Wednesdays is a religion to classify atheism as a religion.
    +1
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
