If you are going to tell me that you think that Christianity is every bit as valid as Atheism, TDA, I am going to openly call you a liar.
Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, and they are entitled to think that they are correct in those beliefs.
I think your Atheistic beliefs are invalid. But, I would fight tooth an nail against anyone saying you couldn't hold them.
Get the difference?
I do. I mistook your use of the word valid. Although I will say that, as a skeptic, I do look at beliefs different than someone who happens to believe one or more of them. And as you might expect, I don't think skepticism is a belief, it's the exact opposite of a belief, in my point of view.
Sorry, I just thought of something I wanted to add. Hopefully it doesn't muddy the waters furthur, as it were.
I'm considering, as a skeptic, the point of view that all beliefs are inevitably false. Doesn't that sound like a skeptic, saying that all beliefs are eventually proven untrue? That being the case, you could say that they are all equally valid--or equally unvalid, in that way. Their validities all equal zero.
