If the choice I have before me is Theism vs. Atheism, then I choose Atheism. If I must first decide that “God exists” and then decide, “what God is this?” then I have nothing but to believe in no God at all.
I wish that all the Theists, Deists, and “higher-power” believers would join me in my Atheism. I wish they would join me in my rejection of the generic-god. For what is a belief like this?
But I want to be a certain kind of Atheist. One that rejects the generic-god but embraces the particular, for it’s only the particular that is believable. I believe in Jesus and this is what makes me an Atheist. Yet, I am also an Agnostic, (see Why I am an Agnostic).
