25. I don't even make it that far

I donít feel much obligation to disprove assertions which no proof was offered to begin with.

Even if one deluded themselves into believing anyone must take a position on the god/no god question, thatís actually just the realm of deism. Theism at a minimum goes much farther, by not only asserting there is one or more gods, but said god(s) intervene in the existence of humans, and they know what said god expects from humans. All three are extraordinary claims each built upon the non-existent foundation of the other. Once one accepts that bag of tricks, add a heaping helping of unbelievable mythology just for good measure.

Then you have those who will continue to insist the theist position is no less valid than the positive atheist position which isnít extraordinary at all and requires no day trip from reality to accept.
