We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

how many types of atheism are there ? or should we define atheism just as a form disbelief in supernatural ?

i d like to get your ideas about the  types of atheism and if they all are justifiable form of atheism. Because if you make arguments about the non- exisistance of god or gods , counter arguments are soon forged against your rational arguments. My question is  shoud we base our atheistic views on evindence or arguments ?

Search cyberspace for "six kinds of atheists" and you might find the study done at the University of Tennessee. Then go where you want to go.

Jaume when you want to prove a point you really want to prove that point. Ha Ha.

Russell's teapot isn't any teapot - it's a *china* teapot (he wrote, "nobody can prove that there is not between the Earth and Mars a china teapot revolving in an elliptical orbit...").

So here's an idea to move Russell's argument one step further.

1) Nuke China. Both Pakistan and India have or had border disagreements with China and are nuclear powers. Tibetans could revolt, they don't have nukes but plentiful of yak poo to fling. Apparently everyone in the West loves the Dalai Lama, so the Western powers would join. Ethnic Uzbeks could revolt too, and bring in the ex-USSR to the fray. Actually, you've just to yell "Communists here!", and everyone but Kim Jong-un will eventually join.

2) When China is done, destroy every remaining china teapot in the world.

3) Send the remaining nukes (and yak poo) to detonate between Earth and Mars. Build more nukes and breed more yaks if necessary, until we're sure there's nothing left in this area that's bigger than a peck of sand.

At this point there's not a single china teapot left in the Solar system, and probably the Universe. We've proven that Russell's teapot doesn't exist, and thus thet God doesn't exist.

(As side benefits, we got rid of all those annoying nukes, we got Pakistan and India to cooperate and be good friends again, we got rid of the Chinese writing system that's so overcomplicated no one understands it, and many more.)

Thanks Bertrand Russell, thanks China!

Perhaps you can base your argument on the world is 6000 years old and hold steadfast to  that.

Are you a Christian Identity movement member?

You should probably base your argument on the world is only 6000 years old and hold steadfast to that.

Stephen, i once read it but forgot all about it. it is called Russell's teapot. Russell wrote that if one claims that a teapot orbits the Sun somewhere in space between the Earth and Mars, it is nonsensical for him to expect others to believe him on the grounds that they cannot prove him wrong. i understand now what you mean. thanks for your comments  you and onyango.

There is no absolute evidence for the existence or non existence of Gods but their is high probability's. Its not up to us Atheists to prove the non existence of God. its up to the proposers ie believers to prove the existence of Gods. Read Bertrand Russell's analogy for the non existence of God he was really helpful and succinct.

arguments don't constitute evidence, they are rationalizations and nothing more.
