Look on the bright side; he might just milk us and make the milk into cheese!

That's... actually not much better, is it?

I'm not keen on getting "milked," thank you very much.   :twitch

As long as I don't have to eat said cheese, I'm OK with it.  :smirk

The trailer for Dark Dungeons is here!

You know, the movie based off the Chick Tract? That will be utterly amazing?

In a similar vein...look what meme is a movie now...

I don't want to start a religious debate, but I do want to say one thing.  Ultimately, proper scientific method applied to the existence of God or some kind of divinity fails to disprove said existence, and therefore the theory of a God existing holds true, while the opposite is also true, meaning the theory of no God also holds true.  Both theories are founded purely in belief and faith, and so atheism is effectively a religion.  Agnosticism is the one viewpoint that can truly be counted as non-religious, as an agnostic doesn't believe or care either way.  Now, I'm not saying any one view is superior or inferior, merely that there are far too many closed minds due to religious beliefs.  And, for the record, I do believe in God, but I also hold to the knowledge that the Bible was written by man, and therefore cannot be held to a literal standard or view, and anyone who does is setting themselves up to sound like total crackpots, whatever view they hold, including atheistic.

That isn't agnostic, that's Apatheist.  Both Theists and Atheists can be Gnostic or Agnostic, the difference being claims of knowledge.  A Gnostic Theist "knows" the supernatural is real, whether that comes in the form of Yahweh, faeries, witchcraft or whatever their personal belief is.  They don't require proof or evidence, and would likely dismiss any that ran counter to their beliefs.  An Agnostic Theist doesn't claim knowledge of the supernaturals existence, and is willing to admit there is no proof or evidence yet feels inclined o believe anyway (though their minds can be change).  Similarly a Gnostic Atheist "knows" the supernatural doesn't exist, while an Agnostic Atheist believes they can't prove the supernatural isn't there but are inclined to disbelieve in it anyway.  Pragmatic Agnosticism is Apatheism, the belief  that the supernatural has had no influence or affect on your daily life and is therefore meaningless and unimportant.  The difference being that if you were conclusively able to prove (or disprove) the existence of the supernatural, you could get a Theist or Atheist who weren't blindly fanatic to change their minds.  Apatheists still wouldn't care as the supernatural still has had no effect on their lives up till that point and would see no reason to change.  Then there is Deism which accepts a creator who does not intervene, but rejects the supernatural.  And Classical Antitheism which accepts the supernatural but opposes it, and modern Antitheism which strongly resembles Gnostic Atheism with the inclusion that religious belief is a form of mental illness and a danger to society.  You also have two odder ones in Ignosticism and Omnism.  Ignosticism posits that any religious or supernatural term must be presented with a concise definition that can be proven falsifiable or verifiable, or it is meaningless and not important enough to be worth discussing.   Omnism is the belief that all religions or beliefs are equally valid.  How you master the cognitive dissonance necessary to practice that is beyond my abilities.

Cancer, baby diseases, and a lot of disgusting stuff exists and happens all over the world.

You're right that this doesn't necessarily proves that God doesn't exist. The reason why babies can be born with nasty conditions even if their parents take all the cares in the world may just be because God willed it.

It however proves that if God does exist, then he/she/it has a very sick sense of humor and/or extreme cruelty, and the only reason to worship him/her/it is out of pure fear so that he won't smite you down or your descendants with horrible diseases. Except he/she/it'll then randomly smite you or your descendants with horrible diseases now and then.

Also as someone once pointed out, what kind of "intelligent" designer puts your natural recreation center just next to your natural waste disposal system? It's kinda laughable when you think about it, and thus on-topic for this thread.

tl:dr: If God does exist, he makes most RPG authors look like freaking design genius by comparison.

Please take all religious arguments somewhere else.  I don't want to hear any of this bullshit.

Curious. I'd never heard of such definitions. But at least that explains why I always felt weird about the description of Agnosticism (since at its root, agnostic literally means "lacking in knowledge").

You hit it on the head.  Science and religion aren't opposing forces, they are completely independent of each other.  You can't prove God exists any more than you can prove God does not exist, and the same goes for all religions and deities.  And yes, atheism is a religion, but note: not all atheists are a part of Atheism.  The religion comes from people who hold the belief that all religions are wrong and they are right.  Science is not a religion, and religion is not a science.  You cannot treat one like the other.
