No undecided fence sitter atheists aloud as an opponent please. One of or a team of Richard Dawkins highly educated idiots would do just fine.

Perception of the conditions that we are subjected to involuntary or not is what
motivates the cognitive drive. How about an educated or an uneducated guess is all we have. So I ask this to all that could have been bothered to read this, "as not to put it out as a loaded question " What is your over all personal perception of your own existence?

The majority of the worlds population will stay with some kind of after life allusion and the rest are undecided until a later date as very few will with all honesty give up all hope of an after life.

Con

a few parts of your argument are hard to understand so I'm going to try to break it down

[No undecided fence sitter atheists aloud as an opponent please. One of or a team of Richard Dawkins highly educated idiots would do just fine.]

-when you say fence sitter do you mean that "i don't know what happens when we die" is not an acceptable answer, i would say that its ludicrous for you to say that yo know what happens when you will die, as for me I'm fairly certain you just stop existing just like the millions of years before you were born. at least that's what the evidence points too.

[Perception of the conditions that we are subjected to involuntary or not is what
motivates the cognitive drive. How about an educated or an uneducated guess is all we have.]

-an educated or uneducated guess is all we have? i mean there's no guesswork involved when i tell you that you are an ape, we all are. that's a fact not a guess.

[ What is your over all personal perception of your own existence? ]

-I am a human being trying to get as much fulfillment out my short life as i possibly can.

[the majority of the worlds population will stay with some kind of after life allusion and the rest are undecided until a later date as very few will with all honesty give up all hope of an after life.]

-no i don't believe there is any kind of afterlife, however if i got to fly around in space being some kind of superhero for all eternity after i died that would be pretty sweet, unlikely though.

atheists who disagree with each other will eventually side together on whatever the evidence most strongly supports. religion will remain entrenched in the human consciousness as long as human beings cannot overcome their primitive fears, particularly that of their own mortality.

" A life that partakes even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature, and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others cannot be called 'meaningless' except if the person living it is also an existentialist and elects to call it so. It could be that all existence is a pointless joke, but it is not in fact possible to live one's everyday life as if this were so. " -Christopher Hitchens

Come on Richard Dawkins where are you and all of your juvenile opinionated bias followers, that just won't come to terms with there own apathetic black or white scientific tunnel vision that continue to cast any goodness aside for there own competitive endeavours.

Atheism is no more then a disease of the mind. Nothing good has come from it. Scientists invented it and are now finally tossing it in the rubbish where it belongs. Apart from Richard Dawkins and his die hard atheist scientists mates that keep on flogging that dead horse to sell another book to string alone gullible misguide individual's for a few more dollars.
What does he do with the money? he give some of it to universities that create more highly educated idiots.

Can you not see the Atheist belief creates divisions and mixed messages within and between western and eastern cultures and nations. Here in the west where we supposably have freedom of speech rofl, atheists continue with a scientific tunnel vision prospective and repeatedly toss the baby out with the bath water. While extremists intentional pick up a big stick to defend any integrity that is left of any book/text about any sort of existences creator. The complete truth of any war; "it's not about who was right. It's about who is left" While philosophy and psychology continue to sift through the bias recordings of history left by the victors.

and as i have stated before atheism is a rejection of theistic claims due to lack of evidence, if you want to claim that atheism is a mental disease, what your basically saying is anyone who doesn't believe in a creator or god has a mental disease, this is simply absurd.

If you could provide "EVIDENCE" and justification for your claim i would be more than happy to examine it thoroughly.

"prove that there is a fully functioning well adjusted mature aged brain within your head"

i would at least provide justification for why scientists are right or wrong on things instead of going to your level and calling them "highly educated juvenile opinionated bias" with no justification given whatsoever, the only bias one here seems to be you.

prove that there is a fully functioning brain within your head sir :)

When are you going to provide justification for your claims instead of simply asserting them.

your the one who called it the following

"highly educated juvenile opinionated bias scientific black or white apothetic tunnel vision that continue to toss all goodness within religion and beliefs aside for there own competitive endeavors."

i was simply quoting you

and it doesn't matter weather you mentioned to religion or not to be a disease of the mind, thats not how diseases work, all this does is show how little you understand the things you are claiming.

And the good of religion, give me a break.
1: No good act like feeding the homeless requires the religion to exist in order to do those things.
2: The pope says condoms wont help with the aids crisis, realize a billion people believe what he says.
3: People in Nigeria are attacking their children under assumption of witch claims.
4: Some third-world country's put homosexuals in prison for life because of their religious beliefs > used to be the death penalty.

why dont you give a proper argument for your claims instead of just asserting everyone who bothered to do a lick of research is narrow minded.

Atheism and Religion isn't a disease of the mind.
And if you wish to claim that over two billion people (thats the Christians alone) have a disease, why dont your provide some evidence for such a bold claim instead of simply asserting it :)

"Look I asked for an atheist that truly disbelieves an existence of God or gods.
Why have you stepped up to the plate to play ball with me, when you are obviously an undecided atheist?
I apologise to you if you have by mistake."

This isn't his fault, this your lack of an understanding of what atheism really is, all you did was look up a google definition.

Their is no such thing is decided and undecided atheists, thats not what it means to be an atheist, so i will explain this "simply" so that you may understand the atheist position outside of your cloud of ignorance.

Atheism is a rejection of theistic claims until sufficient evidence is presented to show otherwise.

That is atheism, you saying crap like that is like the creationists who think "Macro evolution and Micro-evolution are legitimate things and dividable from one another, its horse crap.

"I have had enough of atheists pissing everyone else off. You are either an atheist or a undecided fence sitter.
This is not a personal attack upon you. So if you can't man up then apologise to yourself for being so easily mislead by the likes of highly educated idiots like Richard Dawkins.
Peace be with you and all praise and glory belongs to creation creator."

This is hilarious

how about you man up and provide some evidence for the undeniable need of a creator, instead of acting like everyone else is a dimwit when it is you who is in need of an education 2far4u2CharlesDarwin
