Naturalism 101 Guidelines

NONTHEISTS and hard agnostics only.

This forum is strictly for discussions and debates between nontheists and hard agnostics only. The topic range is for nontheist "in house" issues much like Theology201/Ecclesiology201 is for "in house" Christian/theist issues.

This area is not to be used to unfairly substantively rebut/discuss/criticize specific other members who cannot respond or defend. It also is not be used as a platform to simply stack arguments against theism with the intent that they cannot be responded to here, but interactions between different nontheist viewpoints is highly encouraged. Arguments simply directed towards rebutting or disproving theism should be posted in Apologetics 301.

Additionally, gratuitous blasphemy or mocking of Christians will not be sanctioned in this area. If you wish to mock, please do it where the mocked can respond. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and do not abuse this area.

  • "I don't know ... and you don't either."

    The above is my usual illustrative phrase of "hard agnosticism." More formally, "If a deity exists, knowledge of said deity is impossible." (I will note that I rather doubt the existence of deity, but I am also persuaded that definitive knowledge that no such entity exists is beyond our capacity.)

    What other naturalistic views do we have here on TWeb?

    My conclusion thus far is that evidence for a deity is at best ambiguous. If there is one, I consider it functionally irrelevant. I don't agree that knowledge* of it is impossible, but I suspect it's not something that could ever be shared.






    *Granting for the moment that knowledge is actually attainable, which I generally don't believe.
    I'm not here anymore.

        I'm not really sure if I'm allowed in here, but I think that while there's probably some sort of creator, said creator does not seem to interact much if at all with the Universe, so whoever created the Universe is not really worth worrying about much.

        Sorry. This area is for NON-THEISTS only. Not deists.
