Dear Jeanne, I sense from some of your recent “rebuttles” that you espouse a big-time non-belief system. While you claim to be a reasoning person there is no reasoning to it. Belief tenent #1 is that God isn’t. All else must abide by that fundamental tenent. It isn’t working.
Think back Jeanne upon why you chose Atheism. It wasn’t about whether or not God is or even lack of physical evidence that God is. It was about a Christian belief system that didn’t work for you. Your current non-belief system isn’t working either.
You’re trying to bring science into the mix. However, if your thoughts were to catch on you would set us back to the Golden Age of Greece when the first Atheists tried to take God or gods out of their explanations for nature and thought all matter was composed of only earth water, air and fire. And then you wrote …
“There is no spirit or soul, there is only matter.”
I confess that spirit, especially the human spirit, and soul is a great puzzlement to me. It puzzled Aristotle too. He wrote about it and attributed different measures of soul to humans, animals, and plants too. And then you appear to attribute morals and ehtics and values and conscience to humans who have no soul?
I see in you, Jeanne, a lot of spirit or soul. I’ve said before that admire that of you.
You declare once again …
“I have no belief system, I am an atheist. I have come to this conclusion because no evidence ever given to me has been able to persuade me that any supernatural entities or realms exist.”
You’re not being honest, Jeanne. You very definitely have a non-belief system. It’s getting a mite obvious. Your non-belief system has painted you into the position where you must look away and ignore even scientific evidence to blindly follow your belief tenents.
Evidence will never “persuade” you until first you consider it.
