Agnostic and gnostic are not mutually exclusive to a religious preference.

You can be an agnostic Christian, which poses a problem, as agnostic and Christian are two separate options on your poll. You probably shouldn't have mention agnosticism and just left it at "atheist."

I find it laughable that any educated person could believe in atheism in the 21st century.  "Nothing came from nothing which exploded and randomly created self-replicating things that somehow created intelligent life, guys!"

This forum already has the true spirit of FES. Only one thread in the entire forum and people are trollin' all over it.

Well that's ridiculous. A can of beans couldn't cause a universe. Only an abstract being like God could.

What caused God?

The necessity of His own maximally great nature. It is greater to exist in an abstract sense than to not exist at all.

Oh, I see, when asked direct questions you make shit up.

Simply having the idea of something existing doesn't correlate to it actually existing. I can imagine myself with the ability to shoot fire from my hands, but I don't actually have that ability, nor does any form of my persona exist anywhere in reality that has that ability.

No, I am making a logical inference about God's nature from the modal ontological argument for God's existence. Look up Alvin Plantinga if you want to understand how that translates to my thinking about God.

Well obviously you couldn't think that and have it happen, but a soul can produce effects upon the body of the universe if it is contingent upon an abstract realm of it. Wiki mind-body dualism.

It's the .org administration trying to destroy the new site so we will stay with them.
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

There's a lot more to a person than just the mind and body. What a boring philosophy.

Souls don't exist.
