I declare myself the winner og this arguement. Either way... here is an interesting quote that makes quite a bit of sense.
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." -- Stephen Roberts
You hardly participated in this argument... I should be declared winner... but this argument will remain an issue forever.I declare myself the winner og this arguement.
Are you calling my beliefs a mockery; just because they aren't as widely believed as others?Originally posted by Giancarlo
Toefur, no offense or anything... but mockery gets you nowhere. First off, neither side can argue that each other is wrong... but they can argue their points.
No, no... I understood it. (Just being a pain!)Originally posted by Giancarlo
You misunderstood. Read my sentence again. I said you mocking others is not going to get you anywhere.
You did not.Originally posted by Toefur

As in: if they are actually my beliefs; and you say that stating them is mocking others, then it would seem to imply that my beliefs themselves are somehow some form of mockery.
Nay, I swear it on some random strangers life, I understood!Originally posted by Giancarlo
You did not.
No I did not, you are wrong and utterly incorrect. I did not state that. It is your language that is mocking others.
I agree with what you say here, but the quote is not wrong.Originally posted by bigperm
Of course, and I hate to be the one to point this out... that quote is completley wrong. An atheist isn't a perons who doesn't beleive in some gods, an atheist in someone who doesn't believe in any god. A Monotheist, is someone who only beleives in one god, but that doesn't make him an atheist because he doesn't beleive in the other gods out there.
It still makes a point though.
