    I prefer telling them that My lord Abaddo the destroyer, would frown on me talking to them.

    Don't deprive me of my pleasure in telling them to study for themselves - knowing they are not allowed to. I read all their magazines to keep up. They even invited me to their 'Easter' service this year. But I don't have a suit to wear.:angel:

    I've been making a distinction which does exist, the problem lies in the fact that you use an interpretation which doesn't represent what I've been saying.
    I wasn't baiting you, I wasn't even replying to your message. My statement was a direct response to usfan's meta-discussion about why this matters.

    No the problem lies in the fact that when you are pinned down you argue nonsense and waste jiggabytes of bandwidth. The straw that broke the camels back was when you tried to argue that rocks have capabilities in an argument over being, and I have no desire to trip out over the edge of sanity. I have since then had little desire to debate with you.

    Ah so you are a theist after all :bleh:

    Im sure Christians who are willing to argue such wackiness hand back the same medicine you dish out since they can claim they are theist and lack disbelief and be equally as ridiculously ambiguous as the neoatheists.

    Again, please use the reply button.
    I don't think we've had any disagreement (which we have discussed here) on what actually goes on in the world. Our disagreements pertain to how we describe it and talk/write about it. The fact that it becomes uncomfortable to you when we get close to the core of the issue doesn't seem to be a point in your favour.

    Just to confirm, are you saying that "rocks don't dance" and "rocks can exist" are incorrect statements?

    I can say I believe in flying saucers, you can say I don't believe in flying saucers. A legitimate stance is, I don't know if there are flying saucers.

    Just one problem: you already admitted it. I think maybe you should get your thoughts in order before posting again.

    Well yeah, obviously. Good luck convincing the voodoo shamans in this thread like kokomojojo that their stance is not legitimate....

    It does not matter what the Koko's (Cookoos) of the world think of anyone or anything as the term "Think" does not apply to them in any way. Trolls and fanatics seldom garner respect or positive attention but, often supply free entertainment.

    Thats right I admit that agnostics reject BOTH belief in the existence and also reject believe in the nonexistence.

    Agnostics have advance stereo brains and use both sides at the same time while atheists never made it past mono as we can see.,

    Nonsense. You refuse to address the fact that in your world of binary thinking agnosticism is impossible. Try to at least be logically consistant.

    In your case tripping over the edge of sanity would be falling into sanity not out of sanity. There are two sides of an edge you know!

    Someone is admitting a lack of knowledge in order to make a decision that's what. Do you ever say "I do not know?"

    Agnosticism is only possible in an 'advanced' ternary system, not your binary system. lol
    yes atheists in fact admit they lack the 'factual' knowledge that no God exists and despite that fact they choose to 'faithfully' believe that no G/gods exist.

    Agnostics on the other hand being more rationally astute recognize that without actual 'facts' no logical affirmation or denial is reasonably or logically available and they abstain from taking a position on the matter.

    And your position on the existance of unicorns is? Lets test the consistancy of your thinking.

    But glad to see you have now grown out of your binary thinking and repudiated your previous positions.

    First you accuse me of being binary then when you realize how laughable that was you spin it around with how happy you are that I am not binary. Definitely a Mastur Debater!

    A belief can be anything. No proof necessary. It is just a belief after all.
