Atheism and other misunderstandings!
Debate Rounds (3)
archaic : ungodliness, wickedness
a : a disbelief in the existence of deity
b : the doctrine that there is no deity
I decided to look up the definition of Atheism (Not that I didn't know what it meant) To illustrate a misunderstanding of the word. If you notice the first definition (Archaic) is wickedness, it makes a lot more sense why people are so offended by that word! At one point the word atheism evolved into simply not believing in God (Close to Agnosticism) and believing that there is no God (why people call atheism a belief) People like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris claim to be atheist but are also anti-theist! They think that believing in the existence of God has many harmful ripple effects unseen by the believers! So they preach against it to help us be aware of the pitfalls that comes with faith and belief! My Debate is whether it matters which way you choose or how you represent yourself, it leads to a social conflict where being theist, atheist, agnostic, or anti-theist is picking sides in an ancient war! So I guess I am anti-Human behavior, regardless of which side your on!
The heading of this preposed debate is "Atheism and other misunderstandings!"
You have positioned yourself as 'con'.
Therefore; I will take up the 'pro' side of the debate.
You have demonstrated a stronger than neutral feeling about 'atheism'.
Therefore; I will take the other part of the title.
So; you will be arguing against 'atheism' and I will be arguing for 'other misunderstandings'.
I wish you good health and good luck in this debate.
P.S. the definition for atheism came from the merriam-websters dictionary!
To the debater: We might have to start this debate with a better topic, I would have a hard time debating on the side of theism!
I don't understand the thing about the comments.
This is the second round of a debate, right?
However, I guess. That sometimes happens.
I might have been unclear also.
Sometimes, I tend to get definitions from Oxford dictionary.
Therefore; it is likely that we are not on the same page, so to speak.
Having already started this debate with a position; there is only one round left.
Why don't you state an argument for the final round?
My fault could be the case.
Worry about religious chomps not a bit.
Form it not containing word war best.
