    That sums up atheism rather nicely, I think.

  2. Panzerbjørn Says:

    Pretty much what it boild down to really…

  3. Data Says:

    There’s not much more to say, now is there?

  4. The Heretic Says:

    Problem is that most theists haven’t thought about it. And the ones that have either a) have an extraordinary talent toward delusion and rationalization, or b) had a near death experience (themselves or someone close) that forced them to search for hope and meaning in life and they clung to the first thing that came along. (Probably an evangelist of some sort that promised hope and love while only requiring 10% of their earnings.) There is probably a c) and d) also, but how many excuses do they need. They are either delusional or gullible.

  5. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    Simply put is probably best now isn’t it?

    Fits into the same space as “I think therefore I am”

  6. Jeff Says:

    Oh, wow, Sinjin, is that how that goes? I always thought it was “I think, therefore I yam.” Or is that how that works for theists?

  7. Atheist MC Says:

    Jeff, you may be confusing Descartes with Popeye (easily done)
    “I yam what I yam and that’s all that I yam.”
    Philosophical genius!

  8. Sinjin Smythe Says:

    Jeff and AMC I think more a case could be made for the existence of Popeye than god?

  9. Atheist MC Says:

    Olive Oil really exists, ergo Popeye
