Poll: What is your Specific Level of Atheism?

RE: Poll: What is your Specific Level of Atheism?
It's kind of like someone telling me to fold because they have five kings. Now:

1) That's not a legitimate poker hand
2) There's only four kings in the deck
3) They've said they have that hand every single time
4) I've called them every single time, and they refuse to show me their cards but still claim they "won anyway"
5) Poker doesn't work like this; learn the rules, and give me your money

Garden variety. Possibly variegated.

Can I get it variegated and shorter growing so that no staking is necessary?

Well, it is possible to get a hand of five kings, if the game allows wild cards. The trouble is, theists depend on the wild card to the exclusion of all else. Without it, they're lucky to be able to show a pair of treys.

Indeed yes. Generally the poker-theist is the only person aware that wild cards are being used in the current game, and is unable to produce them as promised either.

Of course you can. Understand that your request won't change my pith.

You'd better change your pith or might stake you anyway.

Labels don't matter to me. I'm an atheist. Show me a reason to believe, then we can talk. So far, no convincing reason has presented itself; at least none that stands up to the slightest bit of criticism, anyway.

What is my specific level of atheism?

Depends which God we're talking about. Some gods are logically impossible, some are close to 0% improbable.

RE: Poll: What is your Specific Level of Atheism?
Actually, all gods are improbable, but not all equally. Improbability shouldn't be a problem for any real god. There has yet to be one demonstrated to tick that box.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'
