    So the god you claim to believe in is not a tyrant?

    It's more the issue that the God you believe in is a tyrant.

    You're the only one advocating God is a tyrant. Assuming what you post here bears some relationship to your opinions, it seems to play a role in supporting your atheism.

    The problem with that is the lumping of atheists - some are religious, some are not, and a wide variety of religions are involved.
    It's a category mistake, in other words - even theism, far more specific, is not a religion. Atheism is nowhere near. The entire issue is just more bs from overt Abrahamic theists searching for political leverage, afaik.

    But that does not render the many and various atheistic religions nonexistent.

    I do not assume anything you post is related to your opinion. If you have an opinion.

    Then that still leaves us squarely with you, and your beliefs about God.

    If a atheist is religious ---- remember in this debate religious = belief in god, quasi religious no gods ---- so I will accept atheist who go with any quasi religious aspects

    Atheists who are religious -- not compute Will Robinson Error Error Reboot required

    That is simply a denial of reality - nothing but confusion will follow. There are and have been hundreds of millions of areligious theists and religious atheists, both. These are normal, standard, common categories of ways to live as a human being.
    I named a few of the standard atheistic religions and atheistic kinds of religions - the animisms, etc. There are online resources for specific ones such as the Navajo tribal religion, and of course the atheistic Buddhist and Taoist traditions are well known and easily researched.

    As long as we're responding to caricatures like you and Jan Ardena, it's hard not to. When you're talking to a duck, you have to quack.

    The Biblical God isn't a tyrant? That's easier to prove than his existence.

    Well, but keep in mind that most Christians cherry pick the Bible VERRRY carefully. First they throw out the Old Testament. Then they throw out parts of the New Testament because they're not "indicative" or something of God. The parts they are left with can be used to demonstrate God is . . . well, whatever they want him to be.
