A meeting place to exchange views, no matter how different or diverse these may be. Keeping these civil and courteous would be appreciated
A person who believes in Ghosts and the Unseen cannot possibly be an atheist. Not a Real Atheist, anyway. An Agnostic or non practitioner, maybe.That is because Spooks, Spectres, Demons etc. are the opposite end of the spectrum to the Deity or the Infinite (for non-Deistic religions).Anyone who claims to be an Atheist has to confront the basic fact, as Shakespeare says, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
an atheist is one who doesn't believe in the omninescence of an almighty creator god, wakakaka, but the rest is open for negotiations.
You have a narrow, Abrahamic-centric interpretation of religion, hence Atheism.Many of the world's great religions are not based around an omniscient or almighty creator. Gods can be powerful, but not almighty. Karma, a common concept to Hinduism and Buddhism, is an unstoppable force, but it has no consciousness behind it.
to me, a non-Abrahamic god id nothing more than a life-form, perhaps one with a million or trillion years of existence but nonetheless a life-form, no different from me, wakakaka
