    If you say so.

    Are you really insisting on dismissing all hypothetical analogies on the basis of "it didn't actually happen so therefore it can't be used in an argument"?

    That has no relation to my argument whatsoever.

    Okay the sentence "you have to make a conjection my the presence of something" makes no sense. Conjection isn't even a word, so I'm really, really not sure what you're trying to say here, lol. Makes it impossible to reply to your argument because it obscures the point you're making - why is the analogy faulty? It follows the same logic. If atheism is a 'faith', since you can't prove that God doesn't exist, then not believing in tiny invisible purple unicorns are a 'faith' since you can't prove that they don't exist. If your logic can be easily applied to something so ridiculous, then either the analogy is faulty or your logic is faulty. You really can't just say "what you said seems ridiculous so I'm dismissing it".

    To be fair, I played around for a long time with the idea that atheism is faith too but I ended up dismissing it for this exact reason.

    You write: "In which you begin to cleaim that I am clearly wrong, and that plato's theories support subjected morallity, when in reality plato's theories where the bases for objective morallity all through out history."

    To quote my VM: "And further, it's improper of you to appropriate Plato's theory on the nature of truth (i.e. that it is extant, absolute, and not subject to or determined by the moral claims of men)." Nowhere did I claim that it is Plato's position that morality is "subjected" (I believe you mean subjective). In fact, I described it as "extant, absolute and NOT subject to or determined by the moral claims of men."

    Your (frankly, very silly) opinion that atheism and agnosticism are religions is not "the truth" as Plato conceives of it. Plato has a very specific idea of what the (singular) absolute and objective truth of being and reality is, and that is the Form of the Good.

    Religion is a set of beliefs based on faith. Atheism and agnosticism are not. Atheism rejects the very notion of faith and claims as truth only that which is experientially verifiable, and agnosticism refuses to take a stance on faith, one way or another, out of lack of surety. Thus, neither of them are based on faith. They are not religions.

    And finally, your claim that it is my position that "deviations are not permitted" is ludicrous. These terms - religion, atheism, and agnosticism - weren't created by me, but rather by all of humanity as an expression of our linguistic ability, to refer to commonly held ideas or notions. It's not as if I've personaly told you that you can't deviate - rather, all of the English speaking world commands you to use words in a manner consistent with their proper, commonly held definitions!

    You can call an apple an orange, if you like, but it doesn't make you right, and you don't hold an acceptable alternative position - in fact, it makes you quite wrong, and the vast majority of speakers of English would freely tell you so. In the same way, you can call atheism a religion, if you like, but you are objectively wrong to do so.

    That's not how atheists see atheism. Do you consider it 'faith' not to believe in tiny invisible purple unicorns?

    Since you've been trying to explain 'philosophy' in your VMs with Toujours, I feel the need to jump in, as this is my field of study. Plato's Ethics are entirely irrelevant in the matter you discussed. The definition of atheism is the belief that there is no God or gods whatsoever, and the definition of agnosticism is a lack of surety as to whether or not there is a God or gods. Religion, by contrast, is defined as the belief in some sort of God, gods, or higher power(s). These are simple and clear-cut definitions that leave little room for interpretation.

    Your forced redefinition of atheism and agnosticism as religions in their own right is clearly false; the definitions are incompatible with each other. And further, it's improper of you to appropriate Plato's theory on the nature of truth (i.e. that it is extant, absolute, and not subject to or determined by the moral claims of men) to claim that your opinion is some sort of universal, indefatigable truth. It's not; in fact, it's false. Atheism and agnosticism are not religions.

    Religion:

    a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices

    This is the definition people refer to. Atheism is not a religion. Agnosticism is not a religion. You are being rude though; instead of trying to refute my point you're being condescending because you think you're right. Maybe work on that.

    There are very few atheists or agnostics that would agree with that on you.

    I think you're thinking of it from the wrong angle. The laws shouldn't define a moral code beyond that which harms others. Outside of harming others, there are things that don't harm people that are against peoples' moral codes, such as sex before marriage. The laws dictate a moral code in a sense, but it's only the loosest code haha.

I never tried making a website before, but I thought it would be nice to have one. I asked Full metal to help me out, and he basically did everything. I can't wait till it is done, it's sole purpose is to better showcase my hack, Pokemon Light. Which I am still hard at work with. =D
