Thanks Grinning Cat. I like the jhuber piece, "Learn from History!"
Three evidential, epistemic, atheological arguments emerge.
1. Argument from Nonbelief, which focuses on the fact that there is widespread nonbelief in the given deity. See my essay on that argument, above [i.e., the preceding essay in The Improbability of God -- ed.];
2. Argument from Confusion (to be labeled AC) focuses on the fact that there is widespread confusion among Christians regarding important doctrinal issues, including morality and salvation;
3. Argument from Biblical Defects (ABD) focuses on the fact that there are various defects in the Bible.
~ Bible passages considered immoral by today's theologians and secularists
I would slightly disagree with you when you say that "Atheism does not state that there is no god/s; it states one does not have verifiable, reliable, replicable evidence that there is/are god/s." This is not atheism but agnosticism. Atheism is quite assertive in saying that no go exists at all.
There are a lot of us asserting "no god exists at all".
Madhukar, I remember you are one of those who challenged me to rethink my agnostic position, and I am grateful you did.
I still like the old saying, I think it was from Richard Dawkins and likely many others.
"Atheists don't threaten to fly planes into skyscrapers".
Though I think there is a T-Shirt that states "Atheists Don't Fly Planes Into Buildings". I gotta get one of those.
Though some Xtians are trying to throw that back against us by citing Hitler and Stalin, like that jerkoff John Johnson who got kicked was at.
Here's such a blog.
Though there's no comments there so far.
I think they really need some educating!
That's the one, thanks Loren :-D~
