General Discussion / Re: Atheism vs. Agnosticism (and Penn Jillette)
« on: October 23, 2008, 12:07:01 PM »
It all depends on the definitions. Common definitions for atheism are "a lack of belief in a god" and "a belief that there is no god". They're both pretty much the same to me.
The way I see it almost all who call themselves atheist are agnostic atheists, meaning they don't claim to know that there is no god. I don't believe there is a person who truly is in the middle of theism and atheism, everyone is more or less leaning towards either side. Many people probably call themselves agnostic because the word 'atheist' seems too strong and possibly anti-religion (which of course it isn't).

If I have to categorize myself I guess I'm quite agnostic atheist. I find the god of the Bible as believable as pink unicorns but when it comes to a more deistic approach I can't really say anything.

I'm looking forward to it. Potholer54 has made a great video about the scientific debate going on.

The math clock is cool, but remember that x ≠ 0  ;)
