外围体育投注Just for fun, I’m just curious what most agnostics would choose? Do you have a favorite you found later in life? Do you revert back to the religion your parents raised you with? Do you choose a non-religion religion like Pastafarianism? Which one and why?

外围体育投注It’s still heavily debated what the term Agnostic exactly entails. Often I’ll see fellow atheists call themselves Agnostic Atheists. Now, the label is completely understandable... atheist refers to not believing in the existence of a deity (not to be confused in a belief that no gods exist) and agnostic refers to the belief that we cannot know if god exists.

But here’s my issue. There terms Hard Atheist and Soft Atheist seems to be more concise and somewhat less redundant. Hard atheist is someone who claims no god exists (affirmative) and soft atheist is someone who does not believe a god exists.

外围体育投注Here’s the point. No (intellectually honest) atheist will ever say that they can know for certain that gods don’t exist. Same goes for a-Santa clausists, a-toothfairyists, and so forth. No one claims that we can know for certain that invisible, undetectable unicorns don’t exits. This statement more or less goes without saying. It’s and implied fact for a majority of atheists. So why do we have to attach this agnostic label? For all claims that aren’t directly axiomatic (like 1+1=2 or bachelors are not married) we can’t be 100 percent certain. But that doesn’t mean that we have to attach a label of agnosticism to our claims.

外围体育投注What are your thoughts? Is agnostic a necessary label or is it redundant? Curious to hear your thoughts!

Ignorant question but I'm having a dilemma. I had a friend who is unaware that I'm agnostic and I'm also unaware how to respond to that. I know he just wishes me well. What should I respond?

Atheist Paul Davis outlines all factors for life to evolve on Earth, which he calls “coincidental factors”, the calculations and odds him and other scientist came up with was 1 x 10 to the 400th power. A number bigger than all the atoms in the observable universe.

So rather than maybe a creator creating life and everything we see, which you can see all around if you look, these are the chances these scientists wanna go with. My question is are you willing to go with these “coincidental factors”?

外围体育投注Astrophysicist Erik Zackrisson from Uppsala University in Sweden arrived at this staggering figure .....a 7 followed by 20 zeros ....with the aid of a computer model that simulated the universe’s evolution following the Big Bang. Zackrisson’s model combined information about known exoplanets with our understanding of the early universe and the laws of physics to recreate the past 13.8 billion years. Zackrisson found that Earth appears to have been dealt a fairly lucky hand.”

It’s pretty plain to see theirs a plan for us here on Earth.

identify? I was raised Catholic, but increasingly I see the same nonsense coming from them as everybody else. Once upon a time they defended the poor and outcast, or at least I thought they did. I'm not an atheist and while xians are depressing hypocrites they arent the reason to leave God; to say so means I've made them God, and no. At the same time, I find it - increasingly impossible- to belong to an organization that continues to harm so many people.

i’m always like “there’s no god” until i really need something then i find myself begging and praying to god for it to happen. and when it doesn’t happen i say “yeah that’s why god doesn’t exist”.
