Response to Major Nikon (Reply #25)

26. My one real caveat

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.


Mostly as a thought experiment, but I think it illustrates the real difference in the thought of the theist and the atheist.

If one day, God showed up and proved his existence, the atheist would accept that they were wrong.

If any aspect of the existence of God, or the related beliefs is falsified, the theist will just alter their beliefs or understanding to ensure the continuation of the existence of God.
