Participating in a discussion with bistiza is like taking a wrong turn in your car and ending up in Retardville. Disengage. Immediately. Or you will be assimilated.
When someone who has tried to debate you is so rattled by their past failures in that regard that they enter other threads with no other purpose than to insult you, that is the ultimate compliment when it comes to debating on internet message boards.
It also speaks volumes about their lack of skills in debate when they go straight for the insults, when if their claims of the invalidity of the opposing argument were true, anyone with even marginal debate skills would surely have an easy time destroying such a weak argument, which would be a much greater way of showing how foolish it was in the first place.
In short: If someone's argument really is incredibly weak, there is no need to insult them - you just defeat them easily and certainly and move on. When the insults begin flying, the person hurling them is almost always trying to cover for a lack of debate skills or a lack of validity to their own argument or both.
Not believing in god is not the same as believing in god.
Thank you, captain obvious.
Both statements are ABOUT god, however, and that means they are religious in nature.
The trait asks if a belief in god exists. The answer to that for atheists is No. So atheists don't fit in the first trait.
A belief ABOUT god exists for atheists, which is how the trait should be worded. Belief in a god is not necessary for religion, as clearly demonstrated by several world religions.
You are insane.
Read what I said to tecwrg above about the person who hurls insults.
People (not just atheists) complain about government endorsement of religion because it's unconstitutional, not because it's profane.
Funny then that most of those people consider themselves atheists, and most groups who band together to attack religion are also considered atheist groups.
Atheism does not classify ANYTHING as either sacred or profane.
Then once again, they should have no problem with religious symbols and the like on government property. Forget the BS about "unconstitutional" the atheists spew all the time just so they can try to stumble for any leg to stand on to defend their beliefs - the real reason they want religious symbols removed is because they consider them all profane. They hate all religious symbols and find them offensive, which is effective the same as profane.
No it doesn't. Atheism ONLY states that there is no god.
If you believe there is no god, what does that say about what you think of prayer? It certainly says something. If you can't figure that out, no one can help you as you do not get logical progression at all.
