Message Subject I'm an Atheist. Why should I believe in a god? Which god? and why?
Poster Handle Don'tBeAfraid
Post Content
To clear things up. I'm an atheist, not agnostic. I say I'm considering but not in the sense that I actually believe there is one. I'm 99.9999% certain that there is no god.
What I'm considering is belief systems and why they believe what they do. Where is the evidence of such things.
I'm sorry I didn't respond to a lot of messages, but they were either without scientific evidence or they were issues I've resolved. I have read them all and nothing there could covince me.

I did find what I thought to be a gem though, which is pantheistic atheism. But then I started hearing about vibrations and I thought the gem was more like plastic.
Where does this vibrations stuff come from? How can it be proven. However, I know you can take and leave want you want anyway, which is good.
Anyway, I like the ideals of pantheism which are actually pretty much atheistic. So, this I am considering.
Can anyone tell me more?

So basically you're too passive to go out and read? Come on! There's so much out there. Read some Spinoza if you're interested in pantheism. Sheesh, you're kinda intellectually lazy for an atheist.

While he makes the claim that Spinoza is not a patheist in the truest sense (God by definition is supernatural, yet for Spinoza God is natural and Nature) most philosophy departments at any university would label Spinoza one of the pantheists.
[link to plato.stanford.edu]
"Arguments of this general type may also proceed from starting points more philosophical than theological. For example, Spinoza, the most famous of all modern pantheists starts from the necessary existence of something he calls ‘substance.’ By this he means that which exists wholly in its own right, that whose existence does not depend upon anything else. The notion of ‘the Absolute’, or wholly unconditioned reality, as it figures in the philosophies of Schelling, Hegel, and the British Idealists may be considered a related development of the same philosophical starting point. In both cases the reasoning runs that this necessary being must be all-inclusive and, hence, divine."
