    It's illogical for a supernatural being to defy the laws of nature when various elements of natural conditions are referred to as evidence of its existence.

    There's nothing illogical about an eternal being.

    There are logical contradictions which can be constructed from omnipotence.

    Its the antithesis to theism. So yes, you are absolutely correct. Its like calling someone an a-unicornist or an a-astrologist. Its for this reason some atheists claim its a stupid term to apply to people because we typically don't label people based on what they don't believe but rather on what they do.

    No not necessarily. Some people claim to know certainty. These people are neither agnostic theists or agnostic atheists.

    I agree but that doesn't stop people from believing otherwise. All we are discussing is beliefs. A belief can literally be anything. It can be contradictory or illogical.

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

    I can make a logical postulation about any noun. This is why a claim being logical is almost entirely useless when not coupled with some other basis for establishing truth. For example, empirical evidence.

    Combining logical absolutes with empirical evidence is monumentally more powerful a tool for extracting truth from reality than either one alone. This is demonstrable.

    Re: What is your religion?

    What's with the 34 people who voted "other"?
    What are you people? Wiccans or something? Satanists?
    What's with 34 people on an internet forum this size claiming a religion other than Protestant, Catholic, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish, or atheist/agnostic?
    What else is there?

    God does not defy logic in that the proposition of God does not defy any of the logical absolutes:
    Law of identity
    Law of non-contradiction
    Law of excluded middle

    But neither do an infinite number of other things.

    Most likely spiritualists of some form or another. Or Mormon.

    Patently untrue.

    Agreed.

    No not necessarily. Some people claim to know certainty.
    But their claim is untrue.

    Mmmmmm, true.
