No belief in god is just as abnormal, it is given normality because the majority of the world are of that same delusion.It's not 'given normality'; it becomes normal. The numbers decide the norms.
Oh but it is given normality as it would have to be normal in the first place, to everybody. Like breathing.
Having the consensus of opinion doesn't make it right.But it makes it normal.
No it gives it the appearance of normality.
So regardless of who has the most power, is belief in god a delusion? Don't answer just because it's the norm, please, give us your real thoughts.Gnostic atheists says yes, gnostic theists say no.
And agnostic atheist say yes too.
Oh and strawman.
Though I've yet to meet or come across a gnostic atheist. it is an untenable positions for the very same reasons I gave in post #119. I very much doubt any atheist would claim a thing so stupid.
So are you going to dodge the question again.
I'll rephrase it and ask it again what is your personal position? is belief in god a delusion? and try not to dodge this time.
Having done a google search. I have found that some people do refer too themselves as gnostic atheist, but with a qualifier of absolute knowledge of anything cannot really be known, this does seems to be a reasonable position to hold. And doesn't require a claim the god doesn't exist.
What would you say to such a theist, 3sigma?I refer you to post #119.
There is no equal burden of proof.
Gnostic theists make a positive claim of a positive assertion - I claim that there is a god.
Strong Atheists make a positive claim of a negative assertion - I claim that there are no gods.
Both positions therefore carry the burden of proof.
Not given the above qualifier that absolute knowledge of anything cannot really be known. So only the theist has the burden.
