Not at all. And like most atheists...you continue to avoid the question.
I'm not avoiding the question, I just don't want to be subjected to your disdain.
I am not interested in disdain. I am interested in discussion. I have never shown any contempt or disdain to you, Hightor, quite the opposite.
I haven't made any claims about the existence of gods, but I have suggested that Betty Crocker is a fictional character; so are Mr. Clean and Gilgamesh. If the non-existence of Clark Kent or the Easter rabbit amount to something more substantial than a blind guess why is the non-existence of god or gods treated differently?
There are many fictional characters about which I have MORE THAN ENOUGH UNAMBIGUOUS EVIDENCE upon which to base a meaningful guess as to whether they exist or not.
I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH UNAMBIGUOUS EVIDENCE upon which to base a meaningful guess as to whether or not there are any gods. Fact is, the mystery of existence is so great that I try not to get too involved in exploring the many possibilities of explanation. I could blindly guess that there is at least one GOD...or I could blindly guess that there are no gods.
Here, let me do it: I am going to toss the coin my wife and I use to decide which team to choose during NFL season when we cannot decide. We call the coin, Mr. Coin. If Mr. Coin comes up heads, I will blindly guess that at least one GOD exists...and if it comes up tails, I will blindly guess that there are no gods. The toss is real.
It came up Heads...so I blindly guess that at least one GOD exists.
Of what use is that, Hightor?
Now, I do not begrudge anyone from making such a blind guess...in either direction. But when someone comes on the scene and asserts CERTAINTY EITHER WAY...I challenge.
What can you possibly see as wrong...or irrational...or illogical...or uncourteous about that?
This is a discussion forum. Challenging things like that are almost a certainty in such a setting.
So I ask again: Do you assert that there are no gods? Or do you assert that your guess is that there are no gods? This discussion is about that. So?
