An interesting news article

I read this article this morning and thought it very interesting. Do you ever think we'll see stuff like this in the US?

Unfortunately, I do think we will see this in the US. And I don't think it will be long.

I had to laugh a little though. The slogan is "The probably isn't a God, so quit worrying and enjoy life." So you're sayin' there's a chance? Then you really aren't an atheist, are you? And I say if you're not 100% sure, then you just better watch out! God might just grab you up and use you for His Glory before you even know it! :-)

Hopefully we will see things like this here in the US; and I believe that we will see more of this as reasonable people push back against the influence that "christian" fundamentalism has been exerting. To Nicole, there is, of course, another alternative besides "believer" and "atheist", and that is the honest position of "agnostic". An agnostic is not a person who falls "halfway between" a believer and a non-believer, but a person who realizes that both believers and non-believers are erroneous in the assertion of the certainty of their respective positions. Agnostics essentially say "I don't know" and moreover, it isn't possible for anyone to know with 100% certainty. That's the honest answer. While you may assert that you are "100% sure", I doubt that you could provide a cogent argument that establishes your absolute certainty. I personally believe that God may be using these "atheists" to force believers to consider the "certainty" and narrowness of their beliefs.
