Well, we can add solipsism to the list of things you think you understand, but don't.
When engaging in internet discussion on a topic, such as solipsism or anything else, why do you think it adds anything to say that another poster thinks they understand it but doesn't? Is it just your way of introducing your post with a hostile interpersonal insult, or do you somehow think there's something beneficial to reading posters' negative opinions of each other?
Who here has denied what you are pleased to call "external reality?"
I'm trying to show you or any other atheist what it is like for religious people to listen to atheist claims? If you believe in external reality, listening to solipsism is like, "ok, that's a different POV." It doesn't make sense to you because you believe in external reality, but you get that the other person denies its existence and it's weird that they deny it, but what are you supposed to do except assure them that it exists?
Thereis no such monolith as "atheism." I am an atheist because I have no reason to believe all that old god bullsh*t, and I don't. I am not an atheist because I subscribe to any particular doctrine. We'll add atheists to the list of things you think you understand, but don't.
Atheism isn't a complex belief, although you may make it part of a complex of beliefs you hold. It literally means "without God." It means you don't believe in God.
These are just conflicting definitions of what it means for things to exist or not exist.
That's just more witless word salad. Don't take a didactic tone with me, I consider you to be an opinionated, not very bright, interfering old biddy. Go trash a different thread.
How do you know the other thread will exist, though?
