Seriously, we need a nice, calm thread. Everyone has been acting harshly, and we need to step back and have a good laugh. And the best place is politics.
Rules:
1) Nothing racist, sexist etc.
2) No debates.
3) Be respectful.

I'll start:
Election in a nutshell:
There's a hair specialist who wants to throw Iraqi body bags at you,
There's a Soviet who wants to throw debt at you,
And then there's Goldman Sachs who flaunts her wealth with her Get out of Jail Free card.
Who will you be voting for this November?

You're on warlight.net most people here are 10-18 you're not going to get respect you're going to get debate and anyone who says anything out of the overton window will be called ''a racist troll''.


How can one respect you when you just say stupidities? You don't even know what the fuck is communism, or you wouldn't say Bernie is one... He's barely a socialist; if you political alienated read a few books explaining those theories from time to time, instead of saying stupidities, that'd be great.


I'm pretty sure someone will call me a communist now (again, not knowing one bit of what it is) ^^. But be aware, I don't defend communism, I just defend knowlage, and clearly a lot of people lack any of it.



PS: I wouldn't have attacked you, I'm used to read that kind of crap, but the little quote criticizing ppl for being imature killed me. You're clearly not mature either, just blabing away those same things without knowing what they mean. It's like a kid that says he hates broccoli bc it doesn't seem good lol.

Muslims (as conserves see them) are the ideal Europeans, and must be brought into Europe to restore its values:

*Want to curb individual freedoms.
*Against abortion.
*Love Jesus.
*Faithful (as opposed to the evil atheists).
*Warmongering and violent.
*Against "the socialism".
*Have awesome beards that Europeans became too cowardly to wear in about the 1900s (see https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/01/Kaiser_Wilhelm_I._.JPG).

Only 7% of EU citizens are atheists, which is actually below the world percentage of 10-16% (Sources disagree).

Needs less.

Also, 7% are atheist in the sense they firmly deny there is a God, while 16% are just agnostic (won't assume anything), also, the Christians are pretty lax. Most don't go to church weekly.

Atheist (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism):

Atheism is, in the broadest sense, the absence of belief in the existence of deities. Less broadly, atheism is the rejection of belief that any deities exist. In an even narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.

Some ambiguity over the word. Compare agnostic:

Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims – especially metaphysical and religious claims such as whether God, the divine, or the supernatural exist – are unknown and perhaps unknowable.

Pretty alike.

Not really, it's just that the limitations of our language require that we use similar vocabulary to describe related positions (The relation is that they both reject theism, that's pretty much it).

The distinction is in the perception of the truth value of the existence of God, which I believe was mentioned in the wikipedia definition. Atheists believe that the idea of God has no truth value, and therefore reject it, whereas Agnostics believe that the idea of God does have a truth value, they simply choose to not hold a belief in God for one reason or another.

That's a pretty big relation, and agnosticism is really just atheism in the broadest sense. It just depends on what meaning your source wielded. But I think 20% of the EU polled that "they don't believe in any god, spirit, or life force".

Furthermore, by atheism, what I meant to say was "irreligion".

It's not really practical to argue relation based on common rejection of a third idea. Like, are all Christians, Muslims, atheists, and agnostics related groups because they all reject witchcraft?

But I think 20% of the EU polled that "they don't believe in any god, spirit, or life force".


That sounds about right, given that the number of atheists and agnostics is 23%.

Also, if you mean irreligion, say irreligion. "Atheism" is a very narrow term that only encompasses a small demographic group in most places, such as in america where only 3% of people are atheists.

Atheism is not always a very narrow word, 125ch, if you've met him, he says himself as an atheist, and wields the broad sense of the word, though - he doesn't deny the being of Gods, he just doesn't believe in them.

It's really the same thing. If he believes that the idea of God has truth value but doesn't believe, he's an agnostic, and if he believes the idea does not have truth value and also doesn't believe, he's an atheist.

And I'm saying technically here btw. Sure he can self identify as an atheist, it's just that those are the definitions of the words, regardless of his self identification.

You seem to be ignoring the broad meanings totally.

Atheism is, in the broadest sense, the absence of belief in the existence of deities.

No, I'm not ignoring it. In fact, I specifically addressed it. Here it is again, a bit simplified:

If you lack a belief in God, you are either an agnostic or an atheist, and which you are is determined by what truth value you think the idea of God has.

What is "truth value", then? Atheists in the broadest sense and agnostists don't deny that there is a God.
