    According to Penn (of Penn and Teller), if you are not 100% sure god exists, you are an atheist. If you are 100% sure god exists, (something that has not been proven), you are very arrogant. To further the situation, if you are arrogant, you are not being humble as Jesus commands.

    I don't know about that. One could be an agnostic theist, wherein they do not claim to know whether a god exists, but proceeds on the assumption that one does.

    an atheist is not 99% sure god exists. he is 0% sure god exists.

    agnostics refuse to quantify their faith in a higher power claiming one couldn't know.

    theists will have that number different from 0 depending on their faith. (higher or lower)

    those at 100% may be either arrogant or ignorant.

    faith is not knowing. i have doubts about god existance sometimes. i believe he exists. i know i may be wrong but i don't care. this is what faith is about. to me existance is more pleasant with a god of love in it.


    your penn (a link about who he is, what he does, in what context did he said this) simply decided to use his fame (i assume he has some) to spew some random, poorly thought out toilet philosophy knowing some will simply gobble it up without questioning it.

    You believe in resurrections, and virgin births and say atheists are full of baloney.

    Do you believe in fairies too? Surely existence would be more pleasant with them as well?

    At least resurrections and virgin births have both happened at least once.

    You've struck me in the past as someone who was more concerned with the real world application of Chrisitianity as manifested in a striving for social justice. It puzzles me as to why you would cling so tenaciously to the more otherwordly and mythological aspects of Christianity, such as alleged resurrections and virgin births.
