I get mail from someone who doesn’t understand atheism as a “Christian”.
1. Define Atheism…
Atheism is an absence of belief in any deity.
2. Give an argument for atheism, not agnosticism
The argument for atheism and agnosticism are “linked”.
There is no empirical unbiased or scientific evidence for a god. There is nothing to infer the existence of one or more gods and the mere existence of one creates so many requirements that believing in one is simply an exercise in fantasy. As there is no evidence for one the appropriate way to live one’s life is to say “I don’t believe in a god”.
Now, you may say that we “don’t know” what exists but that’s like saying that we don’t have any evidence for the existence of fairies so we must be fairy agnostic where we genuinely regard the possible existence of a fairy as an equal stance as not believing in them.
I think the argument for agnosticism is intellectually not rigorous.
Your god may exist, but the chance of it existing is vanishingly small. It’s just as vanishingly small as the gods of other faiths. To live our lives according to the rules of a creature that may or may not exist is an exercise in madness. And if you basically state that your gods exist prior to the “Big Bang” then my response is “We Do Not Know”. We don’t know what was there before the Big Bang. No one does. We can imply what was there through mathematics but the options are NOT mathematical model vs. existence of a magical being.
3. Define God, if any based on their Ideology
A god is an entity or entities that exists outside the boundaries of the universe that is fully capable of breaking all known laws of physics using what can only be defined as “magic”. These may or may not pay attention to humanity but universally seem responsible for various forces of nature including the “ultimate” force which is the force of the creation of the universe.
That’s really it. It’s not a mystery. It’s sensible answers to silly questions.
