    Its because of the same kind of foolish **** I quoted from your previous posts, that you kept posting in my thread, is precisely why I asked you to put me on ignore, hoping you would spam someone elses thread, but because of your obsession with me you relentlessly continue to post in my thread anyway even though claiming you had me on ignore, and now you claim you 'had' to put me on ignore due to my posting, and you pretend that you are having an honest "good faith" debate.

    Seems thats all you got in your little bag to post is pejorative ad hom well poisoning tactics.

    100% pure projection, and you clearly know it. When I did have you in ignore you followed me around in every thread I posted in, responded to my posts, and even misrepresented me in threads I didn't post in. Only months later did I notice. This ghost slander is a prime example. If you really do want me to ignore you that would be fine, but you would have to return the favour.
    You won't, because you are obsessed with me. It is a little creepy.

    please read and try to comprehend the actual 'MEANING' of the above! Its proof beyond even the most ridiculous levels of doubt the extent of the nutterville evengelistic protaganist atheist theories you post out here!

    Fun, now do "in general".

    Then show how my saying atheists aren't precluded from other supernatural beliefs means I said that I myself believe in the "holy ghost" as you repeatedly claimed.

    huh?
    Yes we all realize you want your blunder to magically to disappear.
    look up general is another meaningless red herring that you failed to present in your falsely alleged good faith debate tactics

    "or other supernatural things." IN GENERAL! :roflol:

    atheism,

    in general, the critique and denial of metaphysical beliefs in God or spiritual beings.

    Substituting doubling down for concession all to often runs ya straight into a brick wall.

    Again, pure projection. That's you, not me. Again, show how my saying atheists aren't precluded from other supernatural beliefs other than Gods means I said that I myself believe in the "holy ghost" as you repeatedly claimed. You won't, becaue you want this slanderous blunder to magically disappeared and be forgotten.

    Also, what I did write is not a blunder:

    NICE composition fallacy! :roflol:
    Proving your protagonist theories are out to lunch is not slander by any stretch of the imagination. lol

    Id say if you had something to justify that atheists can believe in supernatural beings Id be all ears but the world knows no such thing exists, except of course in your imagination.

    You people think you can understand complex subjects with only a quick wiki read without understanding and fathoming what the depth and 'substance' of what those definitions actually mean. This is little exchange is a good example.

    That's some epic back peddling right there.

    You went around telling everyone is just I personally believe in the "holy ghost".

    as can be seen from my cited quotes of you that you believe atheists can believe in the "holy ghost", ie things supernatural proving how ridiculously irrational your logic and reasoning is in the nonsense you post. No amount of attempted diversion can save you now, the whole world witnessed that ridiculous contradiction in the cited quoted. you believe an atheist can believe in the spirits and ghosts and by extension G/god(s) as I have proven on the previous page. total cognitive dissonance at its finest!

    No. I did not write that.

    Sure, yes.

    No. That somebody believes in a ghost doesn't mean they believe in a "holy ghost", nor a God.

    And none of the above says that I myself believe in any ghosts or anything supernatural, as you went around telling people.

    Are you stuggling with telling the difference between "Being an ahteist doesn't preclude X" and "All atheists are X"?

    So did Jesus die and become the Holy Ghost? Is he out stalking people wearing a white sheet?

    Odd, the encyclopedias and dictionaries et al all agree that an atheists do not believe in 'anything' metaphysical/supernatural.

    so then you are forced to agree that anyone identifying as an atheist that claims to believe in the supernatural are irreparably irrational, 2 cards short of a full deck.

    Are you an atheist?
    Do you believe in the supernatural?
    If you are an atheist do you have scientific explanations for everything you believe?
    What is the scientific explanation for believing in the supernatural that you rely for your claims?

    good to see strawmen, contradictions, illogic, outright falsification, and unsupported denial is still your greatest strength!

    Not too hard for me or anyone else to throw a dart and hit the inside of the little spheres of yours or the birds playground! :roflol:

    Glad to see you still use and promote misrepresentation! lol

    No they don't. We just went a through a bunch of them and only one of them even hinted that way and it only said "in general".

    No more so than theists who beleive in the supernatural. I don't find either particularly rational or logical.

    More pure projection. Well done.

    Are you ready yet to admit that I never said I believe in the "holy ghost" and that you were following me around and misrepresenting me with that lie while I had you on ignore?

    Or are you still stuggling with telling the difference between "Being an ahteist doesn't preclude X" and "All atheists are X"?

    Actually, democrats and republicans are both overwhelmingly Christian. In 2020, it was 72% of democrats as christians, vs 85% of republicans. But looked at another way, they are twice as likely to be non-christian as republicans... albeit a growing minority in either case:

    [​IMG]

    I haven't noticed a trend of blaming things on god, by believers or unbelievers. Unbelievers do sometimes point to things happening as evidence there isn't a god, I suppose, but that's not really the same as blaming it on god.

    It's fair to ask the question of why democrats often blame problems happening during their control on others. But often it's well-reasoned. Inflation really is based upon things happening in the global economy (post covid supply disruption vs surging demand, invasion of Ukraine) more than anything Biden did or did not do. Need to try to look at it logically to see through the fog of partisanship.

    Great post!!

    I note that everything below the "Jewish" segment is Christian. And, the difference between the religious beliefs of Dems and Reps is, to me, surprisingly close when considering Christian vs. non Christian - closer than I would have thought.

    I believe common right wing perception that Dems aren't nearly as Christian comes from the effect we have that right wing politics leans AWAY from blacks and Hispanics and TOWARD evangelical and mainline protestants - who are over represented in our government.

    Their right wing religious perception appears to come from ignoring Hispanics and blacks - already a well recognized problem, and hardly a surprise.

    Dear Democrats, Democrat Politicians, and Democrat media:

    What have you blamed on God today?
