    Not true. I have always fully agreed that atheists have contributed to philosophy and society.

    Would you like direct quotes where your religion/theory of nothing have been spouted on this site? They been repeated more than once.

    If you don't believe, then you have no belief. I know it's tough for you to believe that, but it's true. I have no belief. It's not something I believe, it's a matter of fact - I have no belief.

    No. You don't have a belief concerning Ishtar. Ishtar is simply not in your scope of beliefs. She is not in the universe of your existants; her absence is not an existant. A negation is not a positive thing.

    There are literally an infinite number of made up gods that aren't in your scope. An atheist merely adds yours.

    If this isn't revisionist history.... Or perhaps I need a translator to understand things better. I already need one for everything to do with government. I could be slipping and need one for reading comprehension as well.

    Contrary to FTB and in spite of your moving goal post, my position is/was that Atheists provide plenty of value. Yet Atheism is unlikely to be the contributing factor. It is really just a doctrine of 'no' towards faith...and offers little else from which anyone could get positive inspiration/direction. And no evidence has been provided to the contrary (but I don't have time to continue this discussion at this point).

    If you don't believe me...look it up. But I am very meticulous as posters here too often resort to 'gotcha' when they don't have anything else.

    Argument for argument sake?

    Does Kepler not have an opinion on the matter?

    An atheist negates the existence of Ishtar. An agnostic does not have a belief concerning Ishtar. Can someone be both? Semantically.
