This posting is at a point where it needs a summarization by a skilled wordsmith, which I am not. I welcome all help and team work.
My method is coffee shop talk, or to tell it in a story. Not the deep scientific thought and communication method most form members use.
Started this posting because I saw trouble with the term “Atheist” and how the communication of thoughts between the websites has been having trouble and going around in circles and getting stuck in the mud over the meaning.
The goal or mission statement of the post would be for CFI to come to a consensus that we think is the proper wording that will translate the thought of the Atheist’s to the Christians and be able to post on Wikipedia for all to use. Note, I have not checked yet to see if CFI would want to post on Wikipedia, if not we can still post ourselves.
These are not my ideas; I am learning myself as this posting has grown.
Step One. Explain the problem.
This took from June 1st to July 15th.
Step Two started on July 15th. Without going though step one, step two would have created total confusion. As step one explained that Atheists do not believe in god. Step two has to explain that Atheists do believe in god (the POWER OF GOD). As step one covered the “Belief” part of Atheist belief, step two will cover the “God” part of Atheist belief.
To help clear things up; today over half the Christians do not believe in “Creation”. They have move god from the Deity to Jesus by claiming they are one and the same. By not believing in “Creation” makes the majority of Christians thinking along some of Atheist lines of thought.
On the Atheist side of things, they are seeing that when the Atheist takes a hard look at religion, they are seeing that god exists in a form of “POWER” and not as a “DEITY” with most Christians today. And that “POWER” does exist, therefore the Atheist statement that “Atheists do not believe in God” or “That God does not exists” is wrong.
