About Me:
I'm on here because I'm a product of years of Catholic religious bantering and I'm now I'm in a flux in a sense due to years of knowing mostly the Christian views but my logic was always there questioning. I would like to find some answers or opinions ideas etc. to some questions on here and learn of others views to many of life's questions...

Sounds like default atheism ... aka agnostic atheism, soft atheism, or whatever.

Atheism is just the lack of belief in a god.  There is of course the subset of atheists who hold the positive belief that no gods exist, but that's a small percentage.  The general stance is, "I see no reason to believe that your invisible friend exists.  Please provide me with a reason to take the concept seriously."

Of course the proposition is also context-dependent.  To the global question of the existence of some being out there somewhere, which someone somewhere might consider a god ... I dunno.  I see no reason to believe in any such thing, but I don't actively believe that nothing of the sort exists.  I just don't hold a belief that anything of the sort does exist, and thus I'm an atheist.

You get the idea, right?  There's a difference between rejecting a proposition as unsupported and accepting the negative position, that the proposition is actually demonstrated to be false.

Anyway, when it comes to pretty much any specific god-concept with which I've been presented, beyond the most vague deistic concepts, I actively believe that those gods do not exist.  I have yet to see a god-concept that doesn't collapse under a mass of logical contradiction and falsehood.

Err, you mean you're now an atheist?  ^.^  You might want to clear up that particular typo, in your profile.

What sort of questions did you have?  I'm always up for a game of 20 Questions, myself.  I work third-shift tech support, so I often have a good bit of downtime.
