Atheist is the complete lack of having religion.

A- = no
-theist = god

This is like saying a woman is a virgin because she's only had sex with one man compared to a woman who's had sex with more.

I was nearly a vegetarian today because I only ate 2 strips of bacon.

I'm nearly asleep right now because of the 11 hours and 47 minutes of the day in my timezone, I've only been awake for 3 of them.

My point is these are black and white, this or that statements. There is no quantitative grey area.

Neutralism. It's a belief. It's called not caring and not debating. Well... pretty much.

Isn't that the same as agnosticism? According to Neil Degrasse Tyson, he'd be an atheist, but he's too busy to 'practice' atheism, so he chooses agnosticism just to stay out of the way.

Hmm... close but not what I was aiming for. It's athieism to believe that there is no god(s), I just couldn't care less either way.

Apatheism apparently. According to a 10 min search, not like anyone cares but at least the loose end is now tied.

I meant that the guy can't afford to care, so he doesn't bother trying and sticks with agnosticism.

Of course if you prefer apatheism I don't mind at all, it's just, I think this fits as well.

So what if I ask him if he believes in Primum Movens? Then it's just a choice if you'd like to think that the universe, universes, y'know - pretty much everything, has an external cause, and acutally started at one point or we are going ad absurdum from and into unmeasurable time.

My ancestors are smiling at me Imperial. Can you say the same?

This isn't even a good quote/argument. It is just anti religion and gets auto thumbed to the frontpage.

This is a ******* brilliant argument.
None of the ancient superstitions were any less valid than the ones around today.

Roman gods were made up on the spot. They have documents of when authors made them up. The concept of the singular God (Yahweh) doesn't have a an origin recent enough to be known and the religion is covered by a book that is known for it's remarkably accurate historical and chronological accounts given the limited resources of the time.
There are also countless accounts within the book that have connections to modern day phenomenon such as rapid fossilized herds of animals near mountain peaks that would have been caused by a massive flood or the description of dinosaurs and something eerily similar to jet planes. The story is perpetrated by a man who claimed to to related to the one God and was shown on many accounts to have performed "miracles". Dozens of miraculous events occurred around this figure and as of yet are unexplained.
This man's argument is that he believes in one less god than Christians. He isn't even discussing any other major religion, just the ones involved with the Jewish God. That isn't an argument at all. He is simply pointing out a statistic.

What's the part you didn't understand about that?

The circumstances around the one religion in particular that he rails on makes it far more credible than the thousands of others that came straight out of some poet's mind in ancient Rome/Mesopotamia/India etc...
What makes you think the expansion theory is more valid than other hypothesis for beginnings of the universe? For all we know two giant forms of matter existed and collided with one another in some absurd explosion of dark mass. Maybe a giant black hole constricted the matter of our universe and after millions of years it dispersed and matter was left to float around. How the hell do we know?
We have been given a couple hundred years to examine our surroundings and attempt to surmise our origin. In that time is looks like the universe pushes out infinitely until it all disperses but how do we know it doesn't do that every ten thousand years and simply pulls back towards itself?
You are so quick to dismiss the beliefs of others without ever bothering to fully know your own. My point is that you have no point because you never stopped to think long enough to make a valid one.

"My point is that you have no point because you never stopped to think long enough to make a valid one."

First of all, you have no idea. If you knew me, you'd be ashamed you said that.

What's much more important is that your reasoning is dead wrong even if you were right about me.
Me not knowing the answers doesn't make the wild guesses and fairytales of others any more accurate.
It doesn't keep me from recognizing and pointing out the fallacies of others in any way.
You don't have to be omniscient to know ******** when you see it.

Yahweh, otherwise known as the LORD our Saviour, amongst other things.
Atheism is the theory or belief that God, or a god of any kind, does not exist, so believing that even just one god exists is NOT atheism.

Atheism is officially defined as "disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods."

Thus if you don't beleive in Odin, you don't believe in God, just a different one. It never says you have to not believe in all gods.

That, my anon friend, is called a loophole.

I think if there's a higher power, he's an asshole for making all of humanity 'guess' and bet all of their eternity on some ******* papers that a ****** wrote over 2000 years ago in a different language.. I want to believe in something but why should I waste my whole life worshiping a higher power with only having a 1/2500 chance of getting into a 'paradise'

well, good point but, lets just say there is a god, at least you have a better chance at getting into paradise, than a zero percent chance.

As a joke, I tell people if god is all forgiving then I'm pretty sure I'll be forgiving for not believing in any religion.

But you have to ask for forgiveness...and anyway, your point doesn't work, even if it is a joke...because then you would have to admit that you believe in God.

See? even if it's a joke, SOMEONE understands my viewpoint. I'm Christian, most of my friends are atheist, and we have no problems. I just think if you live a good life, and there is a heaven, or afterlife, or whatever, you're gonna get in.

Fun Fact: the Hebrew god's name is really "Yahweh". When the bible was translated for European Christains to use, every use of the name was changed to "Lord" and "God".

Another fun fact: "The Lord" can also refer to a Pegan god. So, whenever you hear a Christain saying "Praise the Lord", you can say to them "Oh, so your a Pegan? I didn't know those existed."

Well, that's 2000+ different cultures that believe in deities.

Surely there must've been something to make them believe such. Perhaps an extraterrestrial being primal society misinterpreted as a deity? Perhaps an actual deity.

There's so much we don't know, and so much we'll never know.

First one most likely.

But if we show up to a less advanced civilizations and they see us as gods, does that make us supernatural?

There are actually quite a few ideas that don't involve aliens. The current thinking is that it's a byproduct of the evolution of our brains. There are a few decent books on the subject, such as Why God Won't Go Away, and The God Delusion (highly recommended).
