    Hope you are well!
    I am well, thank you so much and hoping the same for you.

    They did not insist there was NOTHING in the picture. If you recall, he mentioned the pond, some trees and sky and ultimately Winnie and Tigger. It was the other, the "theist" if you will who even though the puzzle was missing only one piece, and the Duck on the box obviously was bigger than one piece, still insisted that there was going to be a duck in the picture. But of course, you get this and yet revel in pretending to be obtuse.

    that was the inherent error of the post....the fact the atheist DIDN'T insist there was nothing in the picture......I pointed that out in my first post.....

    Now, my problem with the analogy is that atheists cannot insist that we now know so much about the universe that there is really only one piece missing in our puzzle of existence and therefore questions about the existence or non-existence of god are unnecessary. There are billions of pieces of our puzzle missing. We don't even know what the picture on the puzzle is supposed to be, and we have no box to give us an idea.

    I'm going to laugh at all the Atheists when the Elder Gods drive you to madness. Of course, as a loyal follower, I'll be far too mad to understand it, so in advance...

    if that's the case, atheists shouldn't insist there are no gods.....they should simply be content as agnostics.....

    And why I wonder? Is it to multiply their numbers or confuse me each time I return? Anyone see 'Babel?'

    It was just a fun modification that I added, you can do it too. You can see a history of their usernames in their profile, usually this will tell you who somebody is if you are wondering.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha
