    Ok, so do you feel that valid knowledge can come from non-rational sources?

    Well, I never said that I was religious, so I would prefer if you used the following words:

    Spiritual people do get that atheism is a belief.
    In what "religion" is it possible to say that you accept and change core "beliefs" which change as human knowledge expands?
    It is called relflexive. You can re-evaluate the details and foundation of your beliefs. I think it is only proper to change your assumptions as your knowledge changes.

    And if these "beliefs" can be changed are they still "core beliefs"?
    That's a great question. I think so, as some knowledge is such that it completely changes your vision of how the world and man acts.

    The religious are essentially claiming that anything can be a religion and a belief making the whole point of religion and belief moot.
    I don't understand what you mean.

    You still haven't answered my question. Reflexive is simply a word meaning directing back to itself, relating to a reflex or relating to a reflex. Religion can't by definition be reflexive.

    That's a great question. I think so, as some knowledge is such that it completely changes your vision of how the world and man acts.
    The mental acrobatics in this are insane and yet you still don't answer my question. If a core belief can be changed is it still a core belief?

    I don't understand what you mean.
    Think of it this way: If I have a car and you don't. I say that having a car is the same thing as not having a car. Why do I have a car at all?

    You are being all combative and I ain't in the mood. Good day.

    Euthyphro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yet after claiming to be able to tell even more amazing such stories, Euthyphro spends little time or effort defending the conventional view of the gods. Instead, he is led straight to the real task at hand, as Socrates forces him to confront his ignorance, ever pressing him for a definition of 'piety'. Yet with every definition Euthyphro proposes, Socrates very quickly finds a fatal flaw (6d ff.).

    (not)x =/= x

    Since when could you define (not)x as another form of x?

    Water does have a taste. Atheism isn't a religion, but it is a faith.
