You’re proud to call yourself atheist because . . . ? Why do you call yourself an atheist though when You can’t prove God does not exist any more than You wish believers can’t prove God does exist? Why do you like the taste of mustard? Why do you not like the taste of mustard? Who cares since Science cannot prove God doesn’t exist either nor can prove the big bang theory or intelligent design or Darwin or any other theories of how mankind was created. That’s why it’s called a “theory” because theories cannot be proven unless/until they are proven and you’ll almost certainly be deceased without ever knowing or proving? And your only argument is hoping to fool people to believe that atheism might be some kind of legitimate calling rather than just admitting you have no clue what to believe and in reality you are just an agnostic who reached the breaking point of Not Knowing(ignorance). But instead of just accepting that You do not know everything either, the only way to deal with it is to malign all other belief systems as false dichotomies because using the word “dichotomy” makes you feel like a thinker and/or you refute Pascal because you found out other so-called atheists also use a ‘Pascal argument’ when trying to fool others that their frustration needs it’s own special nomenclature a>theist? Wow, how a-typically clever but all you’re really doing is strengthening the argument For the existence of God and don’t even realize it? While others of your kind are so frustrated with “not knowing”, they have become hatefully psychotic doing things like hanging out in so-called and otherwise disguised atheist forums with their anonymous cyber-pals who are just as delusional or worse or just haven’t grown up yet and who also hate You and you just obliviously act out as they do displaying cartoonish demonic avatars on your profile pretending you’re also tough and evil and then show as many people as possible in the forum how disrespectful you are too and demonstrate that You also know how to utter profane language. But you can’t understand why most people despise atheists even though they can’t define or find any legitimate application for that word either?
But maybe you’re exploring forums because you do realize that calling yourself an atheist is meaningless and no different than calling yourself an egg or a shovel or a human or a reincarnated squirrel yada yada yada; so you’re naturally trying to find out which “Why-Do-We-Exist” theory might be best for You to believe? And if you really want to know if God exists, you shouldn’t be asking this forum or a so-called Christian forum but rather you have to ask God because that’s the way it works if you have read any of the 14+ versions of bibles and you’re in luck because your options are simple too according to most of those bibles? It’s either True or False that God exists excluding what Pascal said. Which means:
1. False; if God doesn’t exist and you’re content to choose death as your inevitable destiny, then you will die a self-called atheist.
2. True; if God does exist and you choose death instead of eternal life in paradise, then you will die a self-called atheist and then be resurrected only to suffer God’s wrath for eternity instead.
Hmmm, wonder what a sane person would hope for? What were the choices again? Oh ya; it’s either eternal paradise or eternal suffering. Yikes that’s a toughy because who in their left mind would want to pass up the hope for ‘eternal suffering’, right?
a forum-dwelling so-called Christian:
What are You doing in an anonymous forum? Do you not know the meaning of 'anonymous” and ‘deception’ nor haven’t read 2 Corinthians 4:2? Do you think that God doesn’t notice believers are just using the Internet as an excuse to ‘avoid’ Having To Physically Go Into All The World and do what Jesus commands [Mark 16:15-18] etc. and you’re proud to hide in His name in cyberspace because? Ergo, most believers aren’t joining forums to serve God or experience fellowship in Christ but rather they just want to boast and start arguments and insult everyone who doesn’t agree with their limited understanding of “God” or even worse and perhaps more likely; they were tempted into a forum by the devil to distract them From God? Thus, “forums” created to entice idle lazy disobedient believers to cower behind Alias usernames being judgmental hypocrites angrily spewing biblical quotes from ignorance instead of declaring their Real names and going into the Real world and serving God as they Really should be doing and perhaps also like many believers that spend most of their time studying the bible instead of ‘doing’ what it says? Can you say: [BUSTED!]?
Ergo, Solomon, the wisest man God ever created, turned away from God so what makes You think you’re still on the path if indeed you were ever on the right path to begin with? BTW, the “Solomon” reference means that he understood God Way More than all other believers then and since and was also Way Wiser than all other humans including You. In other words, You aren’t worthy of tying Solomon’s sandals let alone even thinking about Christ’s.
Welcome to the majority of human resources on earth who are probably the most truthful about their beliefs, don’t know everything, can’t prove much of anything else and talk mostly about what they only ‘wish’ they knew but don’t need to give it a Name?
Did you ever think of Making Up Your Mind About It, as long as it’s not evil, and ‘going with it’ to see what it might lead to? Most common synonyms perhaps for agnostic:
neutral, fence-sitter, unsure, ignorant, clueless, dumbfounded, constipated, wishy-washy, lofty, whiney, honest, uncommitted, doubtful, along with hundreds of others most of which perhaps most people would probably not want to be thought of ‘as’ and/or accept as normal but not insulting? Some possibly expected and mostly humorous responses for when someone says: “Hey everyone, I’m agnostic.”:
1. Who cares? 2. Either go or get off the pot. 3. Oh sorry; my condolences. 4. Why? 5. And You’re proud of that because? 6. What time is it? 7. Good for you. 8. Have you tried therapy? 9. Love to stay and chat but I’ve actually made up my mind to be something today. 10. How? 11. Is agnosticism contagious/hereditary?
Philosophically, we dig our own graves no matter what we call ourselves and maybe the aforementioned rhetoric per atheist/believer/agnostic simply describes what one chooses to be buried with? I.e. atheist dies with hope they were right that there is no God; agnostic dies undecided; Christian dies with hope of afterlife
So perhaps it’s merely a ‘choice’ issue in that regard?
What say “you” brethren?
