Re: Non-Creation Christianity
I do not think there is clarity among non-believing folks.

That should maybe be a clue that you're missing something. There is no clarity among non-believing people because we're not organized and have not codified our thoughts into some common creed. I only vaguely know what the other atheists here at EvC think about religion and how they define atheism. I don't read what other atheists have to say about atheism or religion, because I don't care what they think, because not one of them know any more than I do about it or I already would have heard about it.

You arrogantly seem to think that you can define what we think and how we think about it. You are mistaken.

I define myself as an atheist. I DO NOT believe that god does not exist. I DO KNOW that I have never seen any evidence that supports any deities, magic, or the supernatural. Not once have I seen or heard of any evidence for anything supernatural. Clearly there are not any gaps in nature where god or the supernatural can hide anymore.

I know some people, even atheists, are joiners and like meetings and that kind of crap, but none of the people I know socialize because we're atheists, we socialize because we are friends and share common interests. None of us are stamp collectors, but we don't sit around talking about not collecting stamps, just like we don't sit around talking about atheism. Being an atheist is not an activity.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
