I know Aufgablassen personally and can attest that he is actually quite intelligent.
My sincere condolences!

you seem unable to understand that he may have not misunderstood.

If I consistently addressed you "dearly beloved leader" instead of "admin", or "mod", or tecoyah. you may know the meaning of the words "dearly beloved leader", but may not know the reason or context for their use in the particular situation.

So dearly beloved leader, insult away.
Thanks from Aufgeblassen

Why do atheists believe in magic?


pingpong, et al,

While it may be the case that "some" atheists believe in "magic," that is not to say that there is some latent framework that compels atheists to establishes a (non-objective) relationship with some supernatural entity that was the Ultimate Cosmic Creator (UCC).

(COMMENT)

Philosophically, atheist do not care, one way or the other, about the influence of the supernatural on scientific inquiry or discovery. The scientific process is objective:

  1. Make observations.
  2. Propose a hypothesis.
  3. Design and perform an experiment to test the hypothesis.
  4. Analyze your data to determine whether to accept or reject the hypothesis.
  5. If necessary, propose and test a new hypothesis.
The process is clean. The process does not have a supernatural component.

Most Respectfully,
R

Since no sensible definition of "God" exists, any argument about the existence of this hypothetical entity is meaningless.

I have already dealt with the best modern thought on this question in this thread:

Why Is There Something Rather than Nothing?

You should pay better attention to my golden words! ---
