I weigh 150 pounds if soaking wet...and have almost no weight in muscle. If I played a rugby half...I'd be dead before "coming here."

You win that one.

And I weigh 15 and 5 (dry), and if I were to ever play a round of golf, I’d kill myself to save the family honour.

Oh... he's Murrican!!
That explains it.

The murrican dictionary of "englich", aka, Merriam webster https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/atheist:
Code:
atheist
noun

athe·ist | \ ˈā-thē-ist
\
Definition of atheist

: a person who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods : one who subscribes to or advocates atheism


So far, it looks like what most people here are saying...
But wait!
There's more

Code:
More Definitions for atheist

atheist noun
English Language Learners Definition of atheist

: a person who believes that God does not exist

See the full definition for atheist in the English Language Learners Dictionary

atheist noun
athe·​ist | \ ˈā-thē-ist
\
Kids Definition of atheist

: a person who believes there is no God

I'm under the impression that in parts of Murrica only these latter definitions are taught and so people become convinced that they can say "I do not believe in the existence of any god and I'm not an atheist".


But you know that Mr Webster made his dictionary on purpose to distinguish Murrican englich from the Queen's English, hence the changes
Color, instead of colour
Neighbor, instead of neighbour
Side walk, instead of pavement
Underground, instead of subway
Tiger, instead of tigre
Meter, instead of metre
Fries, instead of chips
Chips, instead of crisps (not sure this one would have been a thing in the 1800s)
Realize, instead of realise
etc... you get the gist.

I think he’s trolling.

Well, it certainly doesn't help when the members incite him by trolling right back.

RE: I have some questions for the posters here.
Is there anyone here who asserts, “No gods exist?”
I assert that from time to time. For me it holds the same value when I assert "There are no full size pink elephants in my car"

Is there anyone here who asserts that he/she KNOWS that no gods exist?
I know that no gods exist in much the same way that I know that no flying mermaids exist.

Is there anyone here who asserts that it is impossible for gods to exist?
I would assert that some definitions of certain gods are logically impossible.

I disagree, I have a dictionary that defines 'Trolling trolls' as very helpful.

RE: I have some questions for the posters here.
But since we're asking questions of posters I have two for you Frank;

1: What makes your definition hold more weight, and importance than others?

2: How do you manage to get banned from (so far) every forum I've found you on?

Then you believe in god, lol. We can go round and round all day long!

Methinks he fails to grasp the distinction between gnostic/agnostic and theist/atheist.
