    Is that all it takes? Cause biology classes have a schedule...

    looooooooooooooooooooooool

    Dude, you just made some weird bet on this last night and then had to pretend that I edited my post to change it. You're doing this again???!!!!

    YES YES YES, this is awesome!!!!

    I gotta go to bed in like an hour and a half, but pllleeeeeeeaaaaase do what you did last night again, that was hilarious.
    And now you're you're trolling.

    You are saying that me stating I'm not an atheist doesn't answer your question if I don't believe there is a God.

    You are still refusing to answer my questions.

    Do you or do not not accept that rejecting the existence of Shiva is a religion?

    Since you reject the existence of Shiva, do you accept this is your religion?

    If you believe that since Atheism is a rejection of the existence of God it is a religion, you must therefore think that the rejection of Shiva is a religion too. And since you reject Shiva, you must follow this religion, the religion of rejecting the existence of Shiva.

    This thread has maintained an unbelievable shelf life.

    I think that those who believe atheism is a religion has themselves turned the topic "Is Atheism a Religion"...into a religion.

    Oh no, do you think your religious beliefs are being demonized? I think that's another box you can check towards why it can be construed as being religious.

    And now you're you're trolling.
    Am I? I'm laughing at your expense. You went into such theatrics last night and were shown to be so hysterically wrong that I'm shocked and saddened for you that you even bothered to respond here. Of course, you didn't respond to those posts in question. You didn't apologize for being wrong- and then trying to say I edited it after the fact. You have no shame. So allow me to rub your face in it, since you refuse to acknowledge it.

    You are saying that me stating I'm not an atheist doesn't answer your question if I don't believe there is a God.
    I didn't ask if you don't believe there is a god. I asked if you believe there is no god. The difference is subtle, but palpable. Did you really not know that? Then fine, can you please answer the question I asked?

    You are still refusing to answer my questions.
    No, I'm not. Watch:

    Do you or do not not accept that rejecting the existence of Shiva is a religion?
    I do not accept that it's a religion. But I accept it is a religious belief.

    Since you reject the existence of Shiva, do you accept this is your religion?
    Well, no. Because I just said that it wasn't a religion. It doesn't have any vehemence behind it. Do you have any vehemence behind your convictions?

    If you believe that since Atheism is a rejection of the existence of God it is a religion,
    Did I ever say that? Or did I say it could be seen as one, since it holds religious beliefs? Don't go with what you think I said, find a post where I say it. Not what you wish I said. Not what you assumed I said. What I said.

    you must therefore think that the rejection of Shiva is a religion too.
    If, sure.

    And since you reject Shiva, you must follow this religion, the religion of rejecting the existence of Shiva.
    If, sure. But since I said no to the very first one of your questions, which only make sense if you presume I said yes, that statement goes nowhere.

    Now, since I was so kind as to answer yours, could you answer mine?

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO GOD?

    Seriously! That's my point: they hold these religious convictions very close to their heart.

    They proved it in their vehemence and tenacity much better than I ever could.

    No, I just don't like uber-retarded arguments.

    Am I? I'm laughing at your expense. You went into such theatrics last night and were shown to be so hysterically wrong that I'm shocked and saddened for you that you even bothered to respond here. Of course, you didn't respond to those posts in question. You didn't apologize for being wrong- and then trying to say I edited it after the fact. You have no shame.

    Is that why you have infractions over this thread an I don't? Point still is, you got your answer and you broke your bet. But I know you're just trolling anyways.

    I didn't ask if you don't believe there is a god. I asked if you believe there is no god. The difference is subtle, but palpable. Did you really not know that? Then fine, can you please answer the question I asked?
    If you think my comment doesn't answer both, you need to go back to basic English.

    No, I'm not. Watch:
    You refused to do it for several posts.

    I do not accept that it's a religion. But I accept it is a religious belief.
    Then you must accept that Atheism is not a religion then. Let's see just how much you're willing to turn on your own argument to keep trolling.

    Well, no. Because I just said that it wasn't a religion. It doesn't have any vehemence behind it. Do you have any vehemence behind your convictions?
    Since when did only your lack of vehemence matter? Egotistical you are much. Thinking only your opinions matter.

    Did I ever say that? Or did I say it could be seen as one, since it holds religious beliefs? Don't go with what you think I said, find a post where I say it. Not what you wish I said. Not what you assumed I said. What I said.
    By such a measure, sports-fandom is a religious belief. As is beer fandom. As is any form of fandom.

    I'm forcing you to take actual stands troll.

    If, sure. But since I said no to the very first one of your questions, which only make sense if you presume I said yes, that statement goes nowhere.

    Now, since I was so kind as to answer yours, could you answer mine?

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO GOD?
    Not an atheist. For the third time.

    Btw, saying I didn't answer your question again proves you do not know what atheism means.

    I haven't had a summer break in years. I have to do Mandarin refresher with a Cultural Revolution survivor for 6 hours tomorrow, starting at 8, and it's hell if I don't get good sleep.

    Thanks, though, marduc, that was sweet of you!
