    Re: What is your religion?

    Why are agnostics and atheists always lumped together?

    Atheists do not believe in any form of God. Agnostics or even Deists think something Godly mite be out there, they just don't know what.

    So why would they be grouped together?

    I don't believe in fairies, leprechauns, unicorns, garden gnomes, santa claus, or any gods and goddesses.

    Try again.
    I have plenty of arguments at least of the existence of some kind of divinity, the principal problem for me is the origin of matter and motion. After that comes the problem of free will. If we are simply composed of atoms and nothing more then there is no free will and we do not make our own decisions. Our decisions can conceivably be explained by laws of nature. After that is the problem of consciousness. Then there are other problems for the naturalist/atheist that I don't think I need to get into; these seem sufficient.

    Really? The strongest reason for your belief in God is that you don't have a good answer for where matter and motion comes from? I highly doubt it. Furthermore please familiarize yourself with the following: [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_ignorance]Argument from ignorance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    "The two most common forms of the argument from ignorance, both fallacious, can be reduced to the following form:

    * Something is currently unexplained or insufficiently understood or explained, so it is not (or must not be) true.
    * Because there appears to be a lack of evidence for one hypothesis, another chosen hypothesis is therefore considered proven."


    A lack of explanation for the origin of matter and motion does not necessitate God as a solution anymore than it necessitates a God who created the universe and died, or an infinite universe, or a flying spaghetti monster who created the universe. Any solution to the problem must stand on its own merit by satisfying the burden fo proof.

    And why is that a problem? We may in fact have the illusion of freewill and nothing more. Is that too much for you to handle? Is that why you reject it? Or do you just have some unresolved questions that need answering before you are willing to accept it as plausible?

    What problem is that? Another argument from ignorance? Please see above.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
