So as to avoid confusion and to promote a general atmosphere of clarity, I shall now present a strawman for my fellow theists to turn to when we are in danger of losing a debate.
The 'weak theist' is merely a position of disbelief of ...[text shortened]... s instructional and helpful for you all as it hasn't been for me.
Again you suffer from the usual theist confusion: just because your theism is central to your being you assume that my atheism assumes a dominant role in mine.
How wrong can you be. Heres a list of things I don't believe in. It is not an exclusive list and it is in no particular order.
Fairies at the bottom of the garden
A flat earth
The god of islam
manchester united are a great team
england are capable of playing entertaining rugby
the gods of hinduism
races are of different value
royalty deserves deference
the god of the jews
men are better than women
dogs are better than cats
the devil and sin
environmental resources have no intrinsic value
labour has no intrinsic value
the god of the jesus cult
television and other forms of entertainmet are a force for evil
religious belief is more important than free speech
However, I do not believe Darfiarse is capable of understanding the importance of the fact that the jesus god is merely one among many things I don't believe. It just will not register in his belief system that the jesus cult god is just not that important to me.
On the other hand, I have an overwhelming desire to oppose the jesus cult adherents who are intent on manipulating their way into my local schools and force their nonsense on my children against my wishes. My anger extends to the sanctimonious hand wringing god botherers who hold court in this forum. Yes, I mean you.
