The absence of Good/God is evil, but the absence of belief is NOT atheism?

I was referring to his comparison.


His "comparison" is applying the logic used to defend the existence of evil to theism and atheism. Nowhere in this topic apart from your post did anyone, at all, compare atheism to being evil.

But that seemed to go over your head. Way to act smug. So thanks for the ammo


Do you not see the irony here?

You realise you're kind of calling atheism evil right?

I'm stupefied almost every time you post.


Ditto.

...Ditto, you provincial putz?...

Yep. It's just *everyone else* that's wrong. Never Patriotwolf.

When it comes to atheism however, you can't just have an absence of a belief in Good/God. You must either believe in God, or you must believe that God doesn't exist.


But Atheism is an active belief that there is no God. That's the meaning of the word...

Alternatively there are agnostics, which believe the existence of a god is unprovable.

If you don't have any beliefs one way or the other then you're not theist, atheist, or agnostic. You're just apathetic.

Personally I wouldn't think God would consider atheists evil, just wrong.

I know a few ways god could settle this once and for all....

There are many apathetics that have been called atheists by theists. Those theists shouldn't get to have it both ways.

Anybody posting on this board defending their absence of belief in God care enough for their position to be accurately called active disbelief.

Sounds like a personal problem

It is indeed a personal problem, but that person is you.
