"As a random point semi-related topic, I was reading a journal the other day that said you could actually survive without a space suit, check it out, especially what the experiments on dogs found, you may survive, but it would take a week to clean…"
"I'd agree with Jared, the correct statement should be "I simply do not accept it as a possibility without evidence to convince me otherwise". I find the term 'reject' to be far too certain, pushing the statement into the…"
"Jared, I'm confused, are you aware your last paragraph just backs up exactly what I said? I'm not sure why you put it there!?
I assume also you haven't read the rest of the thread as I have already illustrated why saying…"
"Special interest groups are brilliant at redefining reality to suit their purposes, drives me nuts, sorry to sound so arrogant before, but it is a pet peeve that people from the religious right try very hard to re-define atheist so that it appeals…"

"I would disagree, the term fanatic is already well defined by all, it is "atheism" where it is not. The symmetry you do not see in the discussion is relating expressly to the misunderstanding of what an atheist is, once I clarified that…"
"This is a common miss-perception of atheism, atheism is the non-belief in a god, it is not a belief that there is no god.
Many religious people I talk to often understand anti-theists to be atheist and this is simply not the case at…"
