    Moderator's Warning:
    [W:1303]***To Believe or Not To BelieveThat's quite enough. The topic is not the dictionary.

    Next, be productive and responsive. Spamming with the thread with the same replies over and over, has caused the thread to be derailed. Address the topic in the OP.

    Moderation has become much more narrow. If you want to stay in the thread, move on from the back and forth and address the topic or thread bans will be issued.
    Don't waste time on what's not important. Don't get sucked into the drama. Get on with it: don't dwell on the past. Be a big person; be generous of spirit; be the person you'd admire.

    You focus on what you lack belief in, and completely ignore what you have belief in...

    An atheist believes that there are no god(s)/spirits/etc...

    That is opposite to the theist who believes that there ARE god(s)/spirits/etc...

    The agnostic sits on the sidelines (not accepting either argument as a true). Their belief is instead directed towards people currently having no way of knowing either way.

    All three of those people hold belief. Two of them hold belief regarding the (non)existence of god(s)/spirits...

    No, atheists lack belief in gods, unlike theists who believe. Not believing vs. believing. Not a different belief.

    You are ignoring the nature of gods. They can only be believed in or not. Unlike rutabagas. No one talks about believing in rutabagas or not. Gee, why is that?
