    You blew past the fact that the dictionary definition of atheism contradicts everything you've said and reinforces everything I've said.

    So to recap:
    1) Atheism requires neither 100% certainty nor a positive declaration of certainty that god doesn't exist.
    2) whether it's disbelief or lack of belief in god, that person is an atheist.

    You can't argue with these facts so you're probably just going to keep arguing the world, language and definitions are wrong, not you.

    Internet Skepticism is strictly for the birds.
    Nope, just acted as you.

    And nope, internet skepticism is still a fantasy of yours.

    And don't remove the image, it was such a nice one

    And responding to nonsense is as above, a waste of time.

    Your posts in defense of Internet Atheism and in opposition to Internet Skepticism belong next to the entry for "nonsense" in a creditable dictionary. These posts of yours illustrate perfectly the classic denials and dismissals of Internet Skepticism. Kudos.

    Yeah, posting nonsense is not going to ignore the meaning of the word atheism, which is godless/without god. Nor is the unicorn angle of any value to this discussion other than it being BS.

    Or as the Cambridge dictionary writes:


    the belief that God does not exist:


    ATHEISM | meaning in the Cambridge English Dictionary

    Which is something different than Agnosticism:

    the beliefs of someone who does not know, or believes that it is impossible to know, if a god exists:

    AGNOSTICISM | meaning in the Cambridge English Dictionary

    Betekenis 'atheisme' (Meaning atheism)

    One cannot deny things that do not exist.

    Why not? Intuitively the very opposite would seem to be the case. Your posts seem bereft of any sort of forethought.
    That these posts of yours have lately become meme-silly to boot is just an additional embarrassment.
    Hope the weather in idyllic Northern Europe holds for you at least.

    I didn't say they're the same thing. You're a gnostic atheist and omega is an agnostic atheist. Both of you lack a belief in god. That is all that's required.

    Words have meanings, you don't get to change them around because you for some reason want to gatekeep.

    atheist noun
    athe∑​ist | \ ˈā-thē-ist \
    Definition of atheist
    : a person who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods : one who subscribes to or advocates atheism

    The weather is fine, Northern Europe is idyllic as ever, that is why we have no time to discuss things that are not really a thing.

    And I am meme silly

    Maybe you should try looking in the mirror and you will find the person who does that way too many times.
