A New Kind of Atheism

Watch out! There’s a new definition of ‘athiesm’. Here’s a traditional definition from dictionary.com:
–noun
1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God.
2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

Here’s the new definition of atheism:

A without god belief.

Here’s what Marie Castle from Atheism Human Rights says about the definition.

“the reason we’re without God beliefs is because no one comes up with any decent evidences for one. We’d be happy to believe in one if we could find one that lives up to my moral standards or even one you could actually justify. But thousands of years go by and no one comes up with anything except a bunch of mythology. So we’re without a God belief because we don’t see why we should have one.”

They got into an argument over what Atheism literally means, and the lady was trying to say that ‘belief’ is implied in the definition of ‘without God’. They have changed this definition because they cannot answer to this challenge: if you say there is no God, then you are saying that you have done everything to search out any way there is a God somewhere throughout the world. To say that there is no God is an absolute saying that you have investigated every potential ‘god-belief’ and have concluded that there is no God. Now they just say: i choose to have a without God belief.

You can hear a great conversation with her on the weekend edition of the Way of the master radio program.
