    Thanks, Sig.

    I think we've got a pretty good response from those who visit regularly. Feel free to add your comments.

    Same for anyone else.

    Re: Where are ODN'ers on Dawkins' religious scale?

    Sure thing

    I had said that I tend not to trust the judgement of those who claim an absolute on one side or the other.

    Anyone claiming to know for certain something that cannot by its definition be known or observed objectively is in some way operating by desire rather than reason, making a decision to believe represent actual knowledge.

    Making an argument against someone with such a position is likely fruitless as they have left no room for doubt or question and any valid challenge will simply be ignored.

    What's interesting is, anyone on 1 and 7 in my opinion, are unmoveable. They won't ever change from their belief or lack of as it were.

    Re: Where are ODN'ers on Dawkins' religious scale?

    Anyone who says 1 or 7 is not being completely honest. We do not 'know' if God exists in the sense that we know that A=A, or 2+2=4.

    my new religion is 8. Even as an improbability, I've thought about it plenty and I'm way more certain about it than Jung.

    6. 99% sure. 7 is as bad as being theist, its a belief, you can't know.

    So does that mean you ascribe an equal probability to God existing or not existing?

    Or is that some sort of tricky mathematical statement? Like, maybe you mean that you are also 50% sure that you are 99% certain God exists, or perhaps you are also 50% sure that you are only 1% or even 0% certain that God exists.

    I suspect that God has to exist (I tend to think it's true), but I'm rather convinced that we can't demonstrate that God exists. I don't know if you can be "certain" of something that you can't demonstrate.

    In my case, furnish me with new theories and I will take them on board and seriously mull them over, always open to finding out I was wrong. How the hell will you ever learn if you are never open to new knowledge or possibilities?

    I'm a 6. Gods don't exist. Ghosts don't exist. And there is no life after death.

    Re: Where are ODN'ers on Dawkins' religious scale?

    For simplicity's sake I'm a 7, but if we are going to be extremely precise I would be a 6. However, the percentage would be something like 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000001%. I'm a tooth fairy agnostic. I cannot disprove the tooth fairy but I definitely don't believe in it.

    I'm mostly a 7, logically I feel that there is no God but I do not believe in pushing that opinion on to other people.
