    To be clear, I am NOT saying all Atheists are that closed minded/condescending... just that all I have personally met are...
    Yes agnostic atheists rock!

    I'm so sorry to hear so many theists have had such bad experiences with atheists

    We're not all judgmental, disrespectful and pushy.

    Oh please. This is so offensive and narrow minded. You do not need religion to raise children and it's not necessary for moral development. I have proof of that x4.

    I don't see why not, I mean my outlook on life is fairly athiest/agnositic/pantheist, so at least we could have some general agreement with each other.

    So do I. The earth has been observed to exist pretty reliably, and it does host what is defined as life. So any theory about it have at least these facts right.

    I'm with you on this one, bro. Absolute personal conviction on this matter in either direction freaks me out a little.

    Now now Allegorystory.. misquoting people and flinging out some hyperbolic interpretations is not only NOT logical, it's also Not nice.

    But its okay, because ENTP children are my FAVORITE! Just know that someday, when you get big, you'll have to include some of your own ideas too. =)

    Biblical accounts present multiple incarnations of god (depending on the writer). Once they gave God a "proper" name however, there are connotations of pantheism to it (not that it is or isn't.. I'm just saying. It's open to interpretation: YHVH/Yahweh. From the verb "to be". The one who is, etc.. In the famous "burning bush" story with Moses, Moses asks for a name and the voice spells it out for him: "I am that I am".). Not to get into a debate or anything, but I always thought it was a lot more interesting than this old guy in the clouds concept. There isn't much of that in the bible itself (there's stories of God taking on the form of mysterious desert wanderers though). I'm not sure where the old man thing started. It could have been a combination of Greek/Biblical/Norse concepts, once Christian artists started depicting God that way specifically..

    but if the person doesn't force that belief on you, and you don't force your beliefs on them why would it matter, if they don't believe in any deities?
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
