Re: Who the fuck cares about such semantics in this day and age?
The point is that both propositions, without evidence, are absurd. It is not that I do not 'believe' that there is a God (or orbiting teapot etc), it is that I reject other's assertion that there is.
I also do not understand some religious people's obsession with regarding a lack of belief as a belief itself. Is your belief in a God as strong and important to you as your belief that there are no orbiting teapots?
