Do they have the concept TV? You could explain it to them, and then ask them what they believe.
Unless you lack the concept, you cannot deny a stand on it.
Exactly, he lacks the concept of santa. That is how atheists live their lives, as if they had never heard of god and lack a concept of it.
I can. Maybe you cant, hardly my problem.

Ah you mean, self delusion and denial. Ok.
Ok Sam, but do you live in fear of going to hell, or in anticipation of going to heaven?

Don't think about elephants. *bet you did*

Now don't think about _________________
Nah I just hate it when people hide behind semantics. Why not say what you believe instead of twisting what words mean?:shrug:
Perhaps some day you might understand definitions of words. When you do, perhaps then you'll have an argument.
What did you think about here?
Oh I'm very clear about the meanings of words; that is why I dislike it when they are misused. Its obviously a lack of philosophical training these days. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
