    Does it? Please provide some evidence for this assertion.

    No what you are saying is that existence is dependent on perception.

    greenberg,

    Questions like this from sam:

    Don't be silly. Provide me with evidence that you exist
    Are designed to do nothing more than drive the discussion from any hope of progress, back to rediculous levels of semantic and pseudophilosophical babble.

    So asking for evidence that you, the person who does not believe without evidence, exists, in a PHILOSOPHY forum, is pseudophilosophical babble .

    By the definition of atheism accepted by me, atheism is the lack of belief in god(s).

    Done.

    Just a point that (Q) has been trying to make for the last bazillion posts,

    it's clear to us that your god-besotted brains are just not up to the task of comprehending how anyone could consider your precious god thingy as a null proposition.

    Just as you will never give a clear answer to:

    Do you believe that arthropod aliens on Arcturus IV do not exist?

    If you are addressing this to me: I am not a theist, nor have I ever believed in God.

    All I ever did in relation to believing in God was feel guilty because I couldn't believe in God, as not believing in God was a terrible stygma where I grew up.

    Hypocrisy knows no bounds with the indoctrinated cultist who would demand from others that which they have not the ability to provide themselves. This is not something the cultist is aware of as their indoctrinated beliefs are as reasonable to them as the sun rises and sets.

    Yes, I know. I am deeply sorry for that, but that IS cult indoctrination.
