    I do not condemn children for believing in the tooth fairy and I do not condemn christians for believing in the lies their parents have told them. But I am not going to pretend that their beliefs were true.
    What will it take for you to realize that you shouldn't shit all over peoples beliefs with reckless abandon?

    Absolute norms. There are none.

    Does compassion have no weight in your calculations?

    What do you believe in?

    No, not in my calculations.

    I don't understand the question. Do you want me to say something like 'me' or 'science'?

    If you don't understand the concept of belief I fail to see how you had the temerity involve yourself in this thread.

    If that is your stance, there is nothing anyone could ever do to change your mind.

    What is your goal in discussing this here? To mock those who believe in things you do not, while not investing yourself at all because you believe in nothing?

    That is a cowardly way to conduct yourself.

    I suggest moving the last few pages to a seperate thread about nihilism (or the graveyard), since this one was supposed to be about the classic debate about evidence for or against the existence of the Christian god. Nihilism can be a consequence of atheism, but it is NOT the same and not a direct consequence! Besides, this has turned into a personal beef between two members. Less muscle flexing and more debating, please!

    That is no better than schoolyard bullying and I will not stand for it here or anywhere else...

    How much worse that you autopsy others most closely held beliefs than merely scar their bodies?

    I do understand the concept of belief. That does not mean that I have to like or accept it. Can you tell me how your belief in god differs from a child's belief in Santa Claus?

    The only way is to prove or make plausible the existence of god.

    All I am doing is questioning your beliefs. If they are so strong, they can take that and the little spice I bring along. How do you want me to invest myself if it so happens that I believe in nothing?

    It's easy to fight Nicodemus when you have no Chips on the table, or no stake in the game.

    You have nothing to lose, yet I have everything to lose because I have laid bare my core belief for you.

    You disgust me.
