Re: Why Don't Atheists Believe In God ?

So you don't deny there is a 'me' .. I would readily deny it if doing so would make it true. there's a belief there is a 'me' here right? Well I think it unlikely that anyone would pretend to be you so I guess it really is you. Who is seeing this 'me' How am I supposed to know that? can the seer of...

If entropy is both sides of the coin it may have been more accurate to say that entropy is the coin, unless, of course, there's something in the middle of the coin that you've neglected to mention.

That's not true, Pluto, the TV has absolutely no influence over me.

Re: The Inter Mind

I'm looking Steve.. I really like your ideas, and I absolutely agree with you when you say...''you will never see Light or hear Sound the same way again'' Gosh, learning and discovering stuff about the universe and how or why it came into being is so exciting... I completely understand your desire ...

What I mean is: when I look in the mirror, I wish the face looking back at me belonged to someone else.

Re: Why Don't Atheists Believe In God ?

The human will tend to have no belief in what they can't see only what they can see. Yes, it's infuriating how some people refuse to see what's not there. And I do believe in anything that can be imagined else it couldn't be imagined...could it, or couldn't it? Somebody really does need to sit you ...

That could be a problem, Dontaskme, if he's intelligent he's soon going to realise you're a crackpot and make a dash for it. However, I don't get the impression you have anything to worry about.

Re: Why Don't Atheists Believe In God ?

What is your answer? Because atheists are not allowed to believe in God, Dontaskme. There are very strict rules about it, as soon as you have the slightest doubt you automatically get relegated to agnostic. Lots of people manage to lead perfectly normal lives as agnostics but they need to be on the...

I think our particular Big Bang is just one event that has happened in the context of some larger concept that we don't know about yet. I think something wonderful, that I don't yet know about, is going to happen to me within the immediate future, I'm starting to get really excited about. it. We wi...
