You expect me to answer someone named xatheist?
1) Showing your religion (or lack thereof) as a character name only exposes your insecurities (huge character flaw that no PvP guild would want).
2) Atheism doesn't exist
Atheism requires the proof of no god
No proof of no god doesn't exist
Atheism doesn't exist
Religion -----faith---> God (the bridge is faith)
Atheism -----non faith---> no God ??
letter a) inductively reveals the nonexistence of atheism because b) shows that it is self paradoxical.
Rename yourself Xagnostic and then we'll talk, because right now you're not making any sense.
In response to argument a:
Your reasoning is invalid because there is evidence that God doesn't exist. Atheism exists because there is evidence against the existence of god that, in my opinion, is stronger and more logically sound than the evidence for God. We can't prove that unicorns don't exist. We can't prove that Zeus doesn't exist. We can, however, come to the conclusion that because we've never actually seen unicorns or Zeus, they are not real. Atheism has lots of other arguments against the existence of god One popular one is: Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? - Epicurus
Argument b) doesn't make any sense either because the bridge from atheism to no God is not non-faith, but it is the evidence against God's existence.
If you want more info on arguments against the existence of God, Wikipedia and reddit's r/atheism/ have some good info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existence_of_God#Arguments_against_the_existence_of_God http://www.reddit.com/help/faqs/atheism#Strongvs.Weakatheism
Aye, surely the argument against God is more logically sound than the argument for. However, both arguments are inductive, thus it cannot be settled that God exists or God does not exist. This means that even the slightest doubt in the nonexistence of God nullifies atheism. Since there is doubt for sure, atheism cannot exist. As Kixx implies, there is no way to know for sure if you choose the route of atheism - the farthest you can get is agnosticism. As for Epicurus's argument, I am a firm advocate of Saint Augustine's stance in
which argues that:
1) God created the world in infinite goodness
2) The fall (original sin) exerted a lack of goodness
3) The lack of goodness (evil) has expanded domain over earth
Basically, evil is not an entity - It's merely the absence of good.
As for your argument against my argument b), I would argue once again that your argument's inductive nature doesn't allow for an absolute answer. Since non-faith basically means a faith in science, and science cannot prove the beginning of time, atheism doesn't exist.
