[...]we might allow this assumption for the sake of an argument, but you are proselytizing rather than making a logical argument.
Not at all what a silly claim, I'm prepared to argue, why would you think otherwise
Ok...what's the proposition?
Is no one interested in discussing God apart from religion?
Sure, I am, so long as Im not required to assume god just to have the discussion about god.
on one hand, atheists hate religion.
No. That is not a fair statement. I personally think religion is unnecessary. Once we realize religion doesnt justify anything, we'll (hopefully) be able to more easily address innate human deficiencies that are often masked by it. That being said, I don't hate religion. In some places religious institutions are the community. Until a viable alternative exists, hating religion is to hate community itself in many instances.
In short, "atheists hate religion" is a trope that isn't necessarily true.
do you want to know about God or do you have no interest in that at all?
I'm interested in believing as many true things (and as few false things) as possible. I don't want to believe things other people dubiously hold to be true - that's a good way to end up believing in false things!
To be honest, I don't know what people mean when they say "God". Sometimes, an individual's religious beliefs help narrow a definition down - and there is typically a lot of (legitimate) baggage that comes with this understanding. When someone wants to talk about "God" outside of a religious context, it tends to set off alarm bells for me. Hardly anyone identifies as a deist, so why would so many people want to advocate deism unless they simply wanted to sanitize their beliefs to make them less objectionable?
So, let's ask the burning question here - are you REALLY advocating deism... No heaven, no hell, no 'revealed' deity, no personal god?
That being said, I challenge the requested assumption. Let's not assume a god until it can be legitimately established with verifiable evidence.
It has been, but again this is about perspective and perception. To deny there is evidence is simply intellectual dishonesty.
I have not denied evidence. I encourage you to re-read my words. If you can show evidence for god, I'd be very interested in it. If not, then intellectual honesty would be admitting subjective evidence without verification is (at best) evidence for one.
