An ex-Witness told me. So I'm trying to see if that's true.

comment Can one be atheist even if you still pin your hope on Jesus?
Buy you asserted that an atheist has a positive belief that there is no god. This isn't true with the classical definition. You can be atheist with specific god claims and not an atheist with other god claims. It's not automatically a broad assertion that there is no god. For example, you're likely an atheist with regard to Thor.

That is not actually correct. An atheist does not necessarily have a positive belief there is no god. Your definitions are certainly the commonplace definitions but not the correct ones. Agnosticism is about knowing while a/theism is belief. There is no atheism without first a claim of a god. Atheism is a response to theism and god claims. Not inherently a claim of disbelief of all gods. "Philosopher William L. Rowe states that in the strict sense, however, agnosticism is the view that humanity lacks the requisite knowledge or sufficient rational grounds to justify either belief:"

comment Are there any Christian sects that allow for the existence of other “God” claims?
@AaronKorn If those saints are considered "Gods" within that framework, than yes. I was under the impression that is not the case but maybe I'm wrong.

I only exclude it because I'm more familiar with that discussion. I'm trying to see if there are additional polytheistic concepts I'm unaware of.

comment Is it moral or immoral for Satan to punish souls for immoral acts?
Let me see if I understand this Mark Anthony Songer. You're saying that someone who might claim they've never heard of Christianity secretly has heard of it and because of this, they are choosing hell? You're argument feels extremely untenable.

Also, as an example, are you saying that someone born into the tradition of Vodou, who never learns of Christianity, has "chosen" hell?

Okay. Thanks. Are there some Christian sects that believe Satan has dominion over hell?
