Allegory for Jesus
So...you've only met strong atheistic leaning agnostics who acknowledge that they cannot prove that God doesn't exist, but that that is scarcely relevant since you cannot do the same with any other god either, and that there is a vanishingly decreasingly chance that any given god exists, just like any other supernatural entity.
That you think that these people are significantly at odds with the definition of "atheist" and we should just abandon the label altogether due to this betrays your own ignorance.

Of course. It's extremely difficult to prove a negative. Can you prove we don't have proof that God doesn't exist?

We have absolute proof that god does not exist.
We all got together and decided to hide the truth from you, since we are such a large cabal.
If fact, your pastor has the proof that god doesn't exist.
He just laughs at you.

Burden of proof is on the positive... it's up to you to prove there IS a god, which you can't :)

I have never met a true aunicornist. To me, to be an aunicornist you would have to have PROOF of the non-existence of Unicorns. Since you cannot prove it, therefore, there is no such thing as an aunicornist. That would move them into the agnostic category.

By your own logic, since you do not have PROOF of the existence of God, you are also an agnostic.
7/21/2008 3:14:54 AM
I guess by using your logic, there is no God because you have no proof, and no, a poorly written, cobbled together book written by goat herders over thousands of yrs ago isn't proof.

*BZZT* Wrong! Gnosticism refers to knowledge, theism refers to belief. You can be both an agnostic (without knowledge) and an atheist (without belief).
7/21/2008 3:17:24 AM
It's spelled atheist.
And I have proof - Your lack of proof.
And, as long as someone believes there is no God, they are an atheist, regardless of whether they have proof.

"To me, to be an atheist you would have to have PROOF"
When you learn to speak the ENGLISH language, you will have to accept that atheist doesn't mean exactly that.
7/21/2008 3:27:41 AM
Do you have any proof?
7/21/2008 3:39:16 AM
"I have never met a true Christian. To me, to be a Christian you would have to have PROOF of the existence of God. Since you cannot prove it, therefore, there is no such thing as a Christian. That would move them into the agnostic category."
Now do you realize how stupid you sound?

Just because you are an idiot that doesn't understand the word, the meaning or the application of the word.. don't try to make yourself feel better by saying they don't exist. I'm here to tell you that we do.. and not only do we exist, we are gaining more numbers every day. Soon.. unfortunately not soon enough, your silly little myth will be relegated to where ALL myths should be.. in an English Lit class.

This atheist lives his life as if there were no gods. It's quite simple.
Yeah, I hear all the gawdy-god bibble-babble, but I have no use for the babble or the babblers. Deal me out, m'kay?
7/21/2008 4:20:29 AM
So, as a Christian, you can show proof of God's existence?
No...the Bible doesn't count.
7/21/2008 4:51:28 AM
Mick DH answered the question properly...so why did this guy get the 'best answer'? He avoided the question.
7/21/2008 4:52:13 AM
Atheists (capitol A because it is at the start of a sentence in this case) do not believe in any of the 6718 "one-true" gods invented by man, angels, devils, demons, heavens, hells or purgatories.
Least of all will I ever believe in a collection of contradictions, mistranlations, convenient embellishments and babylonian fairy tales that you call a bible.
There few things more depressing than seeing the supercilious rhetoric of the fundie.
7/21/2008 5:06:55 AM
So that means that the world is completely smothered in Flying Spaghetti Monster and Magical Pink Unicorn believers because Christians can't prove they don't exist and so each one believes in them!
YAY!!!! We win!
7/21/2008 5:24:03 AM
JESUS PLEASE COME SOON!
Under that logic, there is no such thing as Christians either, since they can't prove that god exists. So everyone is an agnostic, then? Fine by me.
PS: Burden of proof, fucker.
7/21/2008 6:06:06 AM
Falsificaion does not work that way. You have to give proof that Your wacky and non evidence based conclusions about the universe are correct.
7/21/2008 6:46:38 AM
Wait... someone asks you about orthography and you start rambling about how you think atheists don't exist? Task fulfillment: 0 points.
7/21/2008 9:41:13 AM
Please remember that you can't prove the non-existence of Thor, Baldor, Shiva, Apollo and Horus.
7/21/2008 11:04:26 AM
that must mean that aliens exist aswell then, seeing as we don't have PROOF that they don't exist..
7/21/2008 11:05:10 AM
Strictly speaking, a rational agnostic is identical to a rational atheist. Agnostics recognise there is no evidence for god's existence; the rational axiom that anything unproven is false leads directly from that to atheism. To be agnostic without being atheistic is irrational.
7/21/2008 11:23:33 AM
Burden of proof, motherfucker, it is yours, not ours.
