Peacewithoutgod ... project much? I am quite happy to be more like you ... been there, done that too ;-) I went thru my atheist periods ... though I am more pro-deva oriented now than atheist/agnostic. Or since I experience G-d as a deva ... then maybe I am pro-asura ... because I oppose G-d? I am a heretic.
OK, here is why I reject Deism. Other than the powdered wigs and snuff. Because of epistemology. For me, to be knowledge, it has to exist in the present. So evidence from the past ... is too weak to be taken seriously, including the Bible as history (which it is not anyway). And progressive fantasies (or apocalyptic fantasies) are about a future that has even less evidence than the past. So if G-d is important, then G-d has to be at least passive in the present, if not active ... or both. Deism says ... everything about G-d happened in the distant past (at the Big Bang in the modern theist version). According to De Chardin, G-d is in the distant future, the Omega Point. Again an epistemological fail. And if you were paying attention, my mention of Genesis, wasn't to support Deism ... you were projecting.
Solitary ... so what about atheist Advaita ticks you off? Is it because he doesn't denounce theist Hindus? And why such an old post ... he has posted since last year.
