    Belief is not an inherent phenomenon of the supernatural acting on the individual as theists would like for you to believe.
    So you have spoken to every theist in the world?

    Children are born secular - tabula rassa. A child has to be indoctrinated to believe in gods, and has to be indoctrinated, or review, doctrine that suggest the opposition to theist doctrine, to be an atheist.


    If the definitions of "theism," and "atheism," were correct, you would not make such an error in reasoning; although, you did not generate the argument, but merely parroted it from a weak mind before you.

    I'll bet you like to describe yourself to be an independent and critical thinker - don't you?
    I was not indoctrinated into atheism. When I was sent to Sunday school as a child I didn't believe a word of the story of Jesus or any of the guff in the Old Testament.

    I would say I was the same way, but I could not identify myself as an, "atheist," until the informal definition was introduced to me - doctrine.

    What lead you to identify yourself to be an atheist - the magical work of the gods???

    When did you learn of the term, "theism?"

    How did you do it?
    The founders only had one simple formula for organizing government, and a relatively limited supply of paper, ink, endurance; and basically, parameters of simple designs that would engage the few literate citizens of 1787. We need to have a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people and technology that the founders could not gather.

    There are no magical works of the gods. Gods are figments of the imagination. Would you apply the same criteria to goblins and elves?

    That is either indoctrination, or by reviewing the doctrine.

    You cannot identify yourself to be an atheist until the definition is revealed to you.

    It does not make sense that anyone would designate themselves as the antonym of another designation; especially if they are unaware of the latter designation.

    Because of the informal definitions that you behold to be true, you waddle in irrationality just like the theists.

    Your claptrap is very amusing. My atheism has nothing to do with politics. As for irrationality, irony meters explode.

    The truth is, it is theists who identify atheists. Atheists just identify as normal, rational people. No need to identify as something theists invented.

    it's painful to see nonsense threads like this go on and on for 20+ pages with the creator never understanding anything, even after being explained a dozen or more times.
