Lets see if I can post this in the right spot now. Sorry about that Ikari!
Is there a difference between stating "There is a god" and "I believe there is a god"?Originally Posted by Ikari
To me, I don't see much of a difference save for how you're stating it. One is stating your belief, one is stating your belief acknowledging its a belief.
Yes, I can see why you could be disagreeing with my assessment of how I've seen athiests react usually and how I haven't because...from the implication I'm getting...you seem to think there's a difference in stating "there is no god" and stating " I do not believe there is a god". I don't see a difference between those statements, however I would see a large difference between them and "I believe its possible there's a god, but personally I don't think there is one because I haven't seen proof".
