      Zakath believes in God; he's just too mad at Him to admit it....

          Why are there people posting in the battle thread itself? It's so annoying. How many times does Knight have to say don't post there?

          Ooo, that last post was a long one too.

            I need more ...

            Hi Erieann,

            Do you know the answer to my question? Zakath writes:
            atheist - noun. One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods
            Eireann writes:
            Of the two you presented, only one is an atheist position. The latter is an agnostic position, not atheist.
            OK, then does Zakath claim to be an atheist of the atheist position (One who ... denies the existence of God or gods) or an atheist of the agnostic position (One who disbelieves ... the existence of God or gods).

            Zakath writes:
            What more statement of my position do you need?
            I need to know if you only disbelieve God's existence thus far because of insufficient evidence to support it, or if you go as far as denying God's existence regardless of future evidence.

            Z Man writes:

            You may have been saying this to be funny or to rattle Zakath's cage, but the Bible says you're absolutely right. So-called atheists are really "theists in denial." Everyone knows the truth but suppresses in unrighteousness, according to Romans 1. The Greek term for "ignorance" is actually "willful ignorance," that is, knowing enough truth to push it away from oneself. Great comment, Z Man.

              Actually, Zakath and I go back....way back. Like, a couple hundred posts back.

              Anyways, Zakath has posted a few things that I believe is what warrants him a "fake atheist". Come to think of it, every atheist I've stumbled upon has some tragic tale of how God is mean or unjust...
              Great comment, Z Man.

              Thanks, I guess... But I think that comment is what is sad about Zakath's personal life. Just like the famous atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair said countless times in her diary, I believe Zakath is shouting in his heart:

              Somebody, somewhere, love me.

              Question what you believe in, and then you'll know.

                          My screen name, Zakath, is a character found in a couple of books by David Eddings. Zakath happens to be the emperor of Mallorea (an empire on another world in Edding's novels) and an atheist who is married to an oracle (one who hears from deities). The situation reminded me a bit of my wife and me, hence the name...

                          Hope that helps.

                            I do.

                            Atheism runs, more or less, on a spectrum from weak atheism, what most would term "agnostic" to strong atheism, what most would call an "athiest". I tend toward the strong end of the spectrum, meaning I actually disbelieve in the existence of any deities.

                            I am open to changing my mind if someone (human or otherwise) provided sufficient evidence.

                            Keep in mind you may see that term "sufficiency of evidence" again in the near future...
