• When will there be Wi-Fi stations set up in enough places so that anyone anywhere can access free high-speed Wi-Fi whenever they want?

    Never. First it has to be an unsecured wifi station and second, if a ton of people are all using the same wifi station, it will slow down as the bandwidth is divided between users.

  • If an atheist makes a claim saying "God does not exist" does he or she have to provide scientific proof in order to believe?

    Atheists are not making a claim. They are rejecting a very unbelievable and unsupported claim. That is why we "lack" belief. We can only address the "claim" where theists find reasons to accept the claim as true, agnostics as potentially true and atheists who find to many flaws in the reasoning of theists to share their belief... show more

We can only address the "claim" where theists find reasons to accept the claim as true, agnostics as potentially true and atheists who find to many flaws in the reasoning of theists to share their belief that the "claim" is valid. Certainly there are good reasons that actually support why the concept of God would be impossible but someone had to invent the concept to begin with and when it comes to potentially why the concept was thought of, it seems likely ignorant people assigned magical explanations to otherwise natural events, whereas humans, it can "feel" like nature is out to get us sometimes.

  • Why is agnostic atheism treated as lack of belief and gnostic as belief ? What if you believe there's no God but don't claim knowledge?

    Generally speaking, when an atheist adds agnosticism to their label, it is usually to state that they can "imagine" being wrong, despite there not being anything to support the "real" possibility to be purely agnostic about. If adding gnosticism to the label, there is an expectation from others about how you can know something... show more
    Generally speaking, when an atheist adds agnosticism to their label, it is usually to state that they can "imagine" being wrong, despite there not being anything to support the "real" possibility to be purely agnostic about. If adding gnosticism to the label, there is an expectation from others about how you can know something for which there does not seem to be any clues to. Most theists act as gnostics and there is a high expectation from skeptics to understand how theists can know. There is even an expectation from other theists to understand how other theists come to their very different interpretations. Because theists have failed to sufficiently answer the question of knowledge, it gets labeled a belief by those who disagree. Likewise with gnostic atheists, there is an expectation that they can make a case for this knowledge and if it is seen that they can't, it too will be labeled a belief. The problem is gnostic atheism makes it case of knowledge based on what we already know whereas gnostic theism makes it case of knowledge by assigning magical responses to otherwise natural events. What this means is that even though there are few gnostic atheists, they actually have a very strong case for why Gods would be naturally impossible. The primary reason is because the concept of God has to be defined and our definitions contradict or don't agree with things we already know about existence. Gnostic atheists rely on this to state that the concept of God is like a square circle, where we can and do "know" enough to consider both as impossible. At this point, gnostic atheism is much closer to actual knowledge of why Gods would be naturally impossible as opposed to theists making a case for "imagined possibilities" that basically ignore our knowledge of nature.

The point this person is making and what you are not willing to accept is that good and bad are "relative" to the variables at play and from our perspective. There is no good or bad from our sun's perspective. Objective morality is a flawed excuse made up by theists to give a reason that a God is required. There are no "good" reasons a God would be required. This doesn't mean from our perspective that we cannot generally agree about certain rules that are good to live by, but there will always be exceptions to every rule because good often times means picking the least of two bads.

    While your logic is somewhat sound, your reasoning is lacking. First, people generally aren't looking to deny reality, the claim of Gods is rather magical, making it highly unbelievable to intelligent and rational people. The rational thing to do with an unbelievable claim is ask the claimant how they came to know this existence? Theists have never even reasoned a real possibility of these magical super Beings so there is no good reasons to accept their claim. Does this mean no Gods/Goddesses exist? Not necessarily as you have pointed out. Assuming Gods/Goddesses are possible, we can rule out all Gods/Goddesses that all of our religions and holy books discuss because there is too much human ignorance found in them to insult any Intelligent Gods that may actually exist. So how would we know how many Gods and Goddesses there are? How would we know if humans get any benefit from their existence other than a universe to live and die in? What you are missing is that it doesn't matter if billions of Gods exist if we cannot know of their existence and have a clue as to what their existence means if anything to us humans. You have wrongly accepted the biblical God where even religious scholars don't accept the bible as you do. You are right that reality is what it is, but I am right in that humans are highly irrational/delusional/superstitious making claims that their intellect can't cash. There is not a willful rejection of any "real" Gods because none have been reasonably demonstrated. What there is a rejection of is man made Gods that we can clearly see in our man made holy books and religions that when "rationally" looked at has cause many ex-theists of all faiths as their irrationality melts away, often times when attempting a "better" understanding of their religion. You should look up ex-ministers or ex-preachers who believed they had the calling and when they began to study deeper, realized the errors.

    No. Good and bad are from "our" perspective and "relative" to the scenario at hand. Often times good is the better of two evils and bad is the lesser of two goods.

While humans are social creatures and can generally agree on rules to live by, there will always be exceptions to those rules and scenarios that make an otherwise bad action be a good action in a particular scenario. I'm sure everyone has experienced what they believe to be a bad experience only to later learn it was for the best. It's all relative to the variables at play.

  • Do atheists and Christians have a tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms their propositions?

    People can certainly have a bias, but when it comes to the claims of Gods, the burden is really on the theists to explain why they believe this unbelievable claim. Atheists often point out where the reasoning of the theists fails, yet the same theists continue to use that failed argument demonstrating they are irrational when it comes to this topic.... show more
    People can certainly have a bias, but when it comes to the claims of Gods, the burden is really on the theists to explain why they believe this unbelievable claim. Atheists often point out where the reasoning of the theists fails, yet the same theists continue to use that failed argument demonstrating they are irrational when it comes to this topic. An atheist is more likely to read a holy book with the curiosity of what it will reveal, which is always human ignorance. Theists read a holy book to learn how the magic works rather than should we believe the magic in the first place. The thing about an irrational worldview is that it never fits actual reality and always leaves breadcrumbs back to rationality when the individual is ready to confront why their views are not perfectly aligned with reality. Don't forget, many atheists used to be theists that eventually followed the breadcrumbs back to rationality. Theists are highly splintered into many religions and holy books as well as many denominations simply because it's open to the imagination and not reality. Who is split on whether mountains exist? Theists would like to believe that atheists have a bias, but this is true about irrationality on any topic, the person who is irrational always believes everyone else is wrong instead of accepting good reason.

Infinity is not a thing that can be reached, but it is understood that there is no end and possibly no beginning. Perfection is another impossible concept, it just can't be done. Attempting to get to zero by dividing a number in half can't be done, we simply state that the equation approaches zero. The concept of nothing cannot be achieved. Likewise with Gods, there are too many contradictions and impossible qualities assigned to be taken seriously as a real possibility.

  • Can you prove that god DOESN'T exist?

    Yes. Just like we can know why a square circle cannot exist, the many contradictions to the concept of Gods is likewise the same way we can know they are in fact impossible.

    Yes. Just like we can know why a square circle cannot exist, the many contradictions to the concept of Gods is likewise the same way we can know they are in fact impossible. In particular is the contradiction to the natural order and limitations of nature itself where we can imagine a God magically breaking these but have no real reasons to suspect this is the case. The natural order of existence has to always be from simple to complex over time. There is not one thing that naturally forms or is created by humans that does not go through a series of simple steps over time to get to the more complex or finished product. Yet theists ignorant of this natural order simply assert that the most complex and fully finished product ever (God) magically bypasses this natural order. You could probably write a book about all of the contradictions we define into our Gods. The world contradicts both a loving God and a personal God, which gives rise to Deism, where they imagine a Creator as necessary but see no evidence to support a personal God. Add to this the amount of human ignorance found in all holy books and religions, that people are highly subjective to superstitious beliefs and it becomes understandable why ignorant people with active imaginations assign magical explanations to otherwise natural events. God belief is truly an absurdity if you are intelligent enough and most importantly rational enough to truly contemplate what is being claimed.
