These things have to be thought about long, hard and carefully in order to defeat/forestall the inevitable objections of those who advance this sort of wibbly-wobbly mental mush as their "truth"  

The case for any gods/the supernatural generally is, as far as I'm concerned, a busted flush in every possible way. The case against those things is, to me, absolutely and utterly unarguable, beyond further argumentation or discussion or debate. Watertight - as tight as a duck's arsehole under water, as my dad would say. If that sounds as though I'm closed-minded, no - I'm always open to any concept which has a clear and consistent definition (i.e. which isn't irredeemably subjective, partial and parochial) and which has some evidence in its support. I'll always listen to that. I'm an evidentialist - that's what I'm all about.

Gods don't fit here.

I wouldn't be a materialist naturalist atheist otherwise.

Mr. Toe,
Too funny. You see Betty's post was an example of stunted. Her post went like this,
If this appeared, but this said that, then he would accept that to understand how.

How the heck does she know about what he would do about anything regarding this, that, and how. She loves to invent crap in her head.

I confess that all these different ".....ist" terms that you learnéd people go on about mean nothing to me. I just arrive at my conclusions, but have no idea what sort of  "....ist" I am (with the exception of atheist, of course).
