Response to I am not quite a non believer


Many people find agnosticism more palatable than atheism. It's the stigma as a result of its association with socialism and communism.

By Webster's definition, we are all atheists when we talk about say Zeus, Osiris, Odin and other ancient mythology. Today, non Hindu folks are atheists when we talk about Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva. Conversely, they are atheists about Allah, the Almighty, the Trinity, etc. You get my point, I'm sure. The only difference is that they are selective atheists. I, on the other hand am all for equal opportunity. I equally lack belief in all of them.
