So i think it would be a good idea to share a little bit about myself. (Even though i’m not such a prevalent part of the blog anymore.)
My name is Victor. (You can guess the rest of my name for my username. :P) I’m a full time student at a local Community College in southern california. I’m 19 years old and i’m a music major. I play trombone and piano primarily. I am also a pretty good human beatbox. ;] I also work at Pizza Hut part time.
I am an agnostic atheist. I see religion as nothing more than constraints for humans and i think we’d be better off without it. I started having doubts about Christianity when I started to get exposed to other mythologies. I wondered why ours was considered any different.
This along with the fact that I was already skeptical and really into science, i became an agnostic (though i didn’t know the title at the time.)
My parents have never accepted the fact that I’m an atheist. And it’s a big problem for them. But I live on my own now so they are in no real position to say anything.
I made this blog nearly a year and a half ago but I didn’t really expect to go very far. Hopefully it has grown into something enjoyable for our followers. :]
Here’s a picture of my face. :p
Well that’s about it.
Feel free to ask me some questions or anything. I’ll be up for a while and although I don’t post much anymore, I’m constantly checking up on the blog. :]
Of course God exists. You know what’s the biggest proof of God? Strong Atheists. You see, no one goes around dedicating their entire lives to saying something that doesn’t exist really doesn’t exist. You don’t see people going around saying, “There are no heffalumps.” Everyone knows there are no heffalumps. Atheists prove God’s existence like the darkness proves the light. We would not know darkness if not for the light.
"There is such thing as a delicious pot noodle! I don’t believe in it and no one else does, so it’s stupid to believe that it’ exists!"
Ok so I’ve just denied the existence of something that almost everybody knows is (sadly) nonexistent. Through some strange undefined mechanism, this must now mean I can chow down on a delicious pot noodle!
Oh no wait. It doesn’t. Because logic doesn’t work that way.
But i’m beasting my school’s music department so I’m not available as often.
I do have something to share though.
I always see people complaining of the lack of criticism for Islam and other religions by atheists.
And by “people” I mean Christians.
Now I can’t speak for everyone but I can…
The fact that most Atheists were born and raised in Christian homes. I understand why we focus on Christianity. (Christians tend to shove their beliefs down other people’s throat unlike most religions)
I don’t know if that second statement is absolutely true, but the first one is, in my case.
Okay, my lovely elitist Atheist, where is your proof? Come on, you pride yourself on evidential belief, so you should have some, right?
This may be patronising, but try having Atheists and Theists alike tell you your belief system is a crock of shit, see how calm you stay.
Proof of what? I’m an agnostic atheist.
I’m not a gnostic, so I have no proof to provide.
I do not believe there is a god but I don’t think that I can never know for sure.
See how that works?
You can be agnostic, but you can’t simply be agnostic by itself in regards to religious beliefs. Agnosticism is a position on knowledge. It’s saying that certain truths are unknowable. This word, inherently, has absolutely nothing to do with god.
- Agnostic atheist or weak atheism: non-belief in a deity but without claiming absolute certainty that a god can’t exist.
- Gnostic atheist or strong atheism: non-belief in a deity but with claiming absolute certainty that a god can’t exist.
- Agnostic theist or weak theism: belief in a deity but without claiming absolute certainty that a god does exist.
- Gnostic theist or strong theism: belief in a deity but with claiming absolute certainty that a god does exist.
Any sane person is an agnostic when it comes to a position of knowledge. Absolute objective truth cannot be obtained, so ‘gnosticism’ is insanity. If you live your life as there is no god, and find the idea of a personal god ridiculous— then you are more than likely, an atheist. If not, then you might be a deist.
Atheism and theism wouldn’t even be terms, if you could simply just be agnostic by itself, because know one can know for sure if god does exist or doesn’t.
Agnosticism is NOT the middle ground between atheism and theism.
