Atheist,do you SEPARATE what is natural and common...from that which is uncommon and supernatural?
Explain your line of separation accordingly.
No. There is no supernatural. Anything that occurs is natural by definition. I'm not even sure what supernatural would be. Perhaps getting pure milk from my tap when I turn it on next time? It would odd at least. Uncommon for sure. But I would look for a natural explanation.
Oh I know. A big face of god popping out of the sky and telling us what he really wants. All people around the world would see him and feel and hear his message and know for a fact he is god instantly, because a god can do that right? .
But then, he would be real, and by definition natural.
I totally agree with Slarty.
The difference between people who believe in a higher deity and people who don't, is in general that the non-believers don't need to have an answer to everything.
(believer)If I can't think of a logical explanation then it must be something higher, something supernatural, how else can you explain it?
I accept that I don't understand everything. I don't have an answer to all questions. That just means that I don't know everything.
I don't understand how the tv actually works.
But it's not supernatural.
There are things in nature that I don't understand, but that doesn't mean it's supernatural.
I don't know why I'm alive, but I've decided to give it a reason myself and make the best of it.
The unknown is not that scary, just accept it.
I don't need a God to fill in the dots.
"The supernatural is the natural not yet understood." — Elbert Hubbard
They don't obviously, because they don't believe in the supernatural. There is only what is known and what isn't known. Everyone is free, if they so choose, to attempt to form the unknowable into delusions. Some choose not to.
the uncommon and supernatural are two completely different things bud. just like natural and common. so it is kind of hard to explain something that you have come up with that doesn't even make sense. let me ask you this, are you more afraid to admit god isn't real or afraid to die and know that you will just cease to exist ?

I was about to reply to rickylidea's forum "How Did You Become an Atheist?" when it dawned on me that I might not qualify as a bona fide atheist. Some of you may remember from my previous hubs that I hesitate to apply a label to what I do and do not believe. Still, there...
