    A couple people have commented on this sig-line so I thought I'd start a thread about it.

    What do you think I mean by this? (pos reps given for sincere efforts, right or wrong. :D)


    Discuss.

    I think you mean that it requires arrogance to believe that one's perceptions of the lack of evidence in a Creator makes for the belief that there is no Creator? One believes in one's perceptions more than in a higher power. I don't think I put that very well.

    I see your point, but do not agree because it assumes that there is a Creator and to assume makes an ass out of you and I.

    Instead I see it this way: if a Creator gave me the ability to reason, and in using that ability I come to the conclusion that there is no Creator, it isn't arrogance, it's a Creator who wishes to remain anonymous.

    mani means that he has no clue what atheism means. Why is atheism self-worship? It means that you don't believe that the gods of the bible/koran/whatever exist. What does that have to do with self-worship? That's more like ego-trippin', and we all know what big egos all the born again preachers have. You think maybe the pope has a big ego too? Constantly trying to tell people how to live and the guy's never had sex with a woman, sheesh.

    St. Paul was a narcisist and worshipped God.
