Interestingly, since I originally answered this in March of 2005 I have slipped to agnostic/atheist.

I find it perfectly reasonable to assume something doesn't exist if you have no empirical evidence of that thing and plenty of data that points to more simple alternatives. If someone you know fairly well says to you that they have an elephant in their bedroom, based on what you know of this person and their lifestyle, the size of their bedroom, the layout of the house etc you can make a reasonable claim in regard to whether or not they are telling the truth. It is perfectly reasonable for you to say "I don't believe you have an elephant in your bedroom" rather than "I don't know". It's called probability.

Everyone has a touch of agnosticism in them, sure, nobody is 100% sure of anything, but when it comes to God and other supernatural claims there's more than enough reason to lean toward Atheism as a rational position, because it's highly improbable that there is a God. It seems many agnostics assign a probability of a supreme being a 50/50 chance, well you're free to do that if you want, but it means you're ignoring a shit load of empirical data that suggest that the Universe is perfectly functional without invoking an even more complex idea such as God in it.

Not to say it's impossible to do so, but it's an extreme waste of time, because if you in fact succeed, then the attributes of the object of your disproof will seem to magically transform into something slightly different to evade you, and you will eventually realize you have been wasting your time all along.

You don't have to defend your position if you don't want to. From my perspective it seems like explaining a belief in God is a much more difficult position than someone who disbelieves in God.. the burden of proof is on the theist, not the atheist.

IMO, the bible and all books of prayer are simply really interesting fictional stories. Show me the body of Jesus and maybe I'll believe it...

A little bit of D, mostly E, and a little bit of F.

I don't believe in any specific god, or any god really. I believe in doing what's right, and being a good person and all of that, but I don't think I should need any religion to get me to do it. Karma would be a good way to describe it I guess. It's not that I know for a fact that a god doesnt exist, but more that gods shouldn't NEED to exist. People should be able to do the right thing and make good choices WITHOUT a need for a higher being to guide us to being that way.

When it comes down to it, I don't believe in a god, but I wouldn't really care if there was. I'd keep doing what I always do, and wouldn't pay much attention to religion in general.
