Jedi:"To me Atheism is merely not believing in God or a supreme being. Period."



Ah...but in that 'definition' you 'admit' or 'imply' there is a godthingie, right?

A true atheist would never say that. YOu can't 'believe' in what does not exist. You can only play make believe if you are a 'believer'.


That definition of yours would have to include in 'gods' and 'godthingies' since we know that history shows THOUSANDS of godthingies that humans have groveled to over the past 10,000 years. If you are a believer, you can't just 'believe' in one.
