Introduction

RE: Introduction
Oh shit. I didn't know there was a battle going on.

Maybe that's why I haven't considered the agnostic/ignostic debate settled. To me, the merits of atheism, ignosticism, agnosticism, or gnostic atheism is a discussion worth having. I wonder what particular fact resolves the debate and sets all matters to rest?

Maybe we ought to continue that discussion elsewhere.

I only really mentioned my position on gods because this is an an atheist forum. I'm just here to have fun interacting with minds that are more likely to be intelligent. I don't actually care about the issue anymore. I figured out the correct answer a long time ago. It's not a difficult question.

P.S. It's also important to signal that you are on the right side of the battle. One doesn't want one's allies turning on one. I'm anti-God.

I'm reminded of a sci-fi story about lobsters figuring out how to be sent to other stars, to escape being eaten by the earth population. I forget the author's name, atm. Are you him? Not the lobster, the author, just to be clear.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Do you think that there is a chance that I could be him?

Pretty sure that author is deceased. If you want to look him up, be my guest. YMMV.
