    ...Processing complete.

    (Though the term is technically an oxymoron, I would best be described as an apatheist as I've stated numerous times on the forum.)
    Typical INTP answer. Also very boring.

    Next.

    Please tell me what other gods you worship. Don't bore me by saying that you are an agnostic. Please accept my apologies if you have already mentioned this and I have missed it.
    I'm a non-practicing Jew.

    I'd say I was a Spinozan. It seems to describe my ideas on the God thing at least some of the time. I find it hard to make a leap to a totally random universe that suddenly just happened. I find existentialism to be sort of empty, like hitting myself with a red rubber ball over and over.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    See Fluffy, ^ is interesting.

    I should read more on it. Perhaps watch a short (max minutes) documentary on it.

    It's a western philosophy. As with all western philosophies I wouldn't be surprised if it has much to do with wisdom (understanding) than practice.

    Stoicism seems to be a good exception.

    People keep referring me to that. I guess I'll have to check it out at some point.

    As a practicing existentialist, I find this to be the most quirkily humurous simile for existentialism I've ever heard.

    I stole it from a Marky Mark film.

    I'm considering founding an Orphic cult, because this is baller.

    You will find on the right in Hades' halls a spring, and by it stands a ghostly cypress-tree, where the dead souls descending wash away their lives. Do not even draw nigh this spring. Further on you will find chill water flowing from the pool of Memory: over this stand guardians. They will ask you with keen mind what is your quest in the gloom of deadly Hades. They will ask you for what reason you have come. Tell them the whole truth straight out. Say: 'I am the son of Earth and starry Heaven, but of Heaven is my birth: this you know yourselves. I am parched with thirst and perishing: give me quickly chill water flowing from the pool of Memory.' Assuredly the kings of the underworld take pity on you, and will themselves give you water from the spring divine; then you, when you have drunk, traverse the holy path which other initiates and bacchants tread in glory. After that you will rule amongst the other heroes.

    Yes, to be an atheist (a-theist) we need a God to be against. Thank heavens there are so many Gods to be against. It is an atheists' picnic.

    So strictly speaking we should describe ourselves as Christian Atheists, or Hindu Atheists, or Muslim Atheists, or Pagan Atheists.

    Each form of atheism is radically different depending on the God being rejected. To lump us all in as just Atheists hides the multiplicity and rainbow colours of Atheism.
