"if you keep throwing around words like faith and belief, how will Episto ever be able to mow logically. I'm sorry, I have this thing for word association and sound. You know after I made the initial post, I got to thinking that someone was…"

"No problem at all HoPpeR, take all the time you like. I'll just answer this for you for now to hopefully clarify a bit: "I think what you are saying is that if a being is not supernatural, then no matter what other attributes it has, it…"

"I don't really object to anyone argueing this side either. I just don't think it is likely to change anyone's mind. It happens, just not often. More often the thumper goes away with what they see as more proof of our blindness. When…"

Hi to HoPpeR in Virginia and welcome to Atheist Nexus. We are pleased to welcome you here among the sensible, rational people of this world who, like you, recognise religion for the superstition and fraud that it is --- and that God and gods are nothing but fictions inside people's heads.

Terry Meaden
originator of the busy discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 250 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
