I enjoy science and reason as much as the next guy but saying that what we have discovered so far is definitive enough to make a rational judgement about the meaning of our lives is disingenuous.
I'm assuming you don't have a religion. Because believing in one religion means you accept that your God is the true God, and have "enough to make a rational judgement about the meaning of our lives", and you shut your mind to other religions or believes.

FWIW, read a recently published paper on quantum mechanics? According to those theories, "God" not only exists, but all gods, entities, and supernatural phenomena exist on infinite levels in infinite probabilities. Everything has to be out there, because all 10 dimensions encompass all eventualities.

So, yes, atheism is wrong, all religions are right, and there's no reason to argue about it anymore.
What? All religions are right? But doesn't that mean atheism is right too since there are infinite levels in infinite probabilities, mean the probably of no God exist in on of these infinite levels.

Doesn't that also mean that all religions are wrong, since there isn't one true God, but an infinite number of Gods.

We happen to live in the dimension that God does not exist. To free yourself from this Godless world, kill yourself and you'll be ascending to the level where your God exist.

In summarizing quantum mechanics:

We live in a dimension where God does not exist nor have any influence over our lives.

Believing in one true God is idiotic, because there there infinite levels of infinite probabilities. No religion is correct.

Buddhism is the closest to the truth as you die and ascend to a different level, reincarnated in another life. Infinite levels of infinite probabilities.

So if Atheism is a belief system, then it too is a religion, right?

That's why being anticlerical is the way to go. :-) That there be a God (or Gods) is irrelevant. That a few people indoctrinate masses for their own profit in the names of said hypothetical God(s) is criminal.

I don't know.

Is not believing in Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny a religion too?

Easter Bunny non-believers religion. Who here is part of that religion? Who here believes in the Easter Bunny.

I guess in one of the infinite level of infinite probabilities, the Easter Bunny exist too.

Far from it. I'm only atheist because it is the most probable version of reality based on the current evidence (or lack of it), just like I'm an aclausist because based on the current evidence Santa isn't very likely either.

I'm happy to change my views as new evidence comes in. Which is what sets a scientific mind apart from a religious one.

Yes I do, I believe the probability of life existing elsewhere is pretty damn good.

It may not be true but I believe it regardless of the lack of evidence.

No proof for that assertion. You're drawing assumptions based on (very) incomplete data.
Believing in one true God is idiotic, because there there infinite levels of infinite probabilities. No religion is correct.
Or they're all correct, and you choose the one that's right for you.
Buddhism is the closest to the truth as you die and ascend to a different level, reincarnated in another life. Infinite levels of infinite probabilities.
Which requires just as much faith as any other belief system.

Really, you can do better than this.

You've already drawn conclusions, and that makes you a poor scientist. Even if evidence were found you'd make excuses and try to discredit it, because it isn't what you want.

This is pretty much *my* opinion on the existence of a "supreme being". I think there's a chance that one might exist, but I allow for the equal possibility that one doesn't exist.

My motto about the universe is that the unexpected probably should be expected.

I think to have your mind made up about existence at this stage of the game is a bit premature. We have yet to travel to even our closest star, nevermind the countless trillions that lie eons away from us.

What's out there? Certainly not 'nothing,' and that I'm sure of.

This is also pretty much my belief, that all beliefs are correct. That does, of course, include Science, Atheism and Gaiaism. Unfortunately, if *all* beliefs are correct, Christianity must be at least partially incorrect since Christianity does not accept that any other beliefs could be correct.

Not all Christian jurisdictions are the same. Some accept other beliefs, they simply don't subscribe to them.

No, but there's nothing to suggest it is. Do you believe in everything based on the logic, "Some people mistakenly believe in this, so it's probably true for other reasons?"

No, atheism is lack of belief. It's similar to how I disbelieve that guy on late-night TV in the question-mark suit who guarantees I can get rich from government grants if I buy his book. According to your logic, he must be right, since what we occupy is only one millionth of reality and quantum mechanics say his promises will come true or something like that. I guess I better go buy that guy's book.

I find it useful to take the meta out of metaphysics. People who will be so wishy-washy and tell me I'm being "cocky" by disbelieving in God would never give Late Night Question Mark Guy their money, but it's the exact same thing. I accept that it's very faintly possible that there will turn out to be a god or that it will turn out everybody else in the world is an actor and I'm in some kind of real-life Truman Show, but let's be honest — you aren't seriously entertaining the idea of a vast global conspiracy just like I'm not seriously entertaining the idea of God.

Atheism is a choice that's made without having all the facts, like any other faith-based system.


Circles and circles, round and round. How many times does this point need to be made?

Your previous actions speak louder than words.

But hey, don't feel bad, I understand that you have quite an emotional investment in your beliefs. Most people do and it's perfectly normal. It's cute how, for years now, you've made bold little signatures expressing your views. Also, who can forget the thinly-veiled abuse towards Theists. It's been a hoot, I tell ya.

So, no, I don't think you'd reverse on a dime if direct evidence of "God" is found.

How could you correct me with inaccurate answers.

I say 1+1 = 2.

You correct me by saying 1+1 = 5

Oh right. It's quantum mechanics. 1+1 = 5 in some levels of infinite possibilities.

However, in our world, 1+1 = 2.

Sure, the Easter Bunny is fine. Somewhere, in some time, it's worshiped as a god. It bangs a little drum and runs on heavenly batteries. Not that I'm ready to build a shrine, unless you count the stuffed rabbit in my study.

No, I'm not particularly religious.

One does have to acknowledge the irony that some atheists are often the preachiest bunch, and many have got a huge head start over most everyone else on self-righteousness to boot.

Shaddim,

By the way:

infinite possibilities != all possibilities

If infinite possibilities == all possibilities,

then it means I'm f*cking God.

Atheists are religious, they have a belief. However, theirs is the only belief that is plainly wrong. It's the doctrine of divine exclusion in a universe with infinite probability. Now that's illogical.

Yes, and I'm God.

Since I'm a God, I do not worship other Gods.

I'm not an Atheist. I just don't worship other Gods or false prophets.

And why would God need protection? Fear of getting pregnant?

Possible, or maybe you could.

Glad you see it that way.

Now worship me cause I'm God. That's my belief and thus it's a correct belief according to quantum mechanics.

Worship me like you worship all your other Gods including Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. According to you, they are all your God(s) and they are all the same.

I'm just as powerful as the other God(s), since we are all the same.

Any belief that I've created will become the true. Because according to quantum mechanics all beliefs are possible.

Yeah, they prattle on and on about something that "doesn't exist". It plainly doesn't matter to them.

I would certainly agree some atheists are religious, not all. Like others have said though, and to be fair, it's disingenuous to say they all have the same belief system.

It's the noisy (minority?) that are religious, -and not just religious, but NUTTY religious. Clearly, they have that same burning need to preach their beliefs (nay, gospel truth and ONE true path!) to everyone else and, wear it around on their sleeve, think their views make them special, and exhibit that same phony persecution-syndrome when told to STFU in so many words by weary people tired of their stunts.

As evidenced by the very story this thread is about. Putting up a preachy, annoying sign like that near someone else's holiday display is about as asinine a self-righteous dick move as anything any other religious nuts get up to that annoys everybody else.

Same intolerant, self-righteous clowns, different religion.

It's interesting to me, in that as a sort of third-party observer of both sides, it's crystal clear to me why each hate the other so much: people often hate most the mirror image of themselves in others.

Yes, that's also a possibility.
