Ok, i'll bite. I agree that we shouldn't tick off the atheists with a discussion between two non-atheists on their board (though i'm curious as to what you consider yourself, if not an atheist).

Is meaning boring? Or does "meaning" exist at all? If you're not an atheist, then i assume you are agnostic or theist.

Some of this I already answered in my previous post, but I thought I would address the issue of whether I am a theist or an athiest or an agnostic. I would say I am both a theist and an atheist. I think you can define god in such a way that I believe such an entity to exist and you can define god in such a way that I do not believe such an entity exists.

Depending on how you look at the universe, either everything is conscious or nothing is conscious. If everything is conscious then that biggest of everything can be called God. Either way, it doesn't matter to me.

If you are theist, doesn't there HAVE to be meaning?


If you are agnostic, isn't meaning at least possible?

Anything is possible. All definitions and all boundaries are arbitrary. I do not mean to suggest that my definitions are any more or less valid than yours.
