[the Flying Spaghetti Monster]
Atheists often tell me “Atheism is not a religion; atheism just means I don’t believe in gods.”
I would like to respectfully ask however: What exactly do you mean by the word “god”?
Let’s say, for example, there would exist alien beings who are a trillion times more intelligent than humans. Further more they are invisible and intangible since they are made from dark matter. They are powerful enough to be able to easily create new galaxies in moments. Would these Dark Matter Super Creatures [DMSCs] be gods? And if not, why not? Gods in non-Abrahamic religions basically resemble some sort of super heroes or space aliens. [This may explain the popularity of UFOs and comic books in many circles today. Deep down, we really miss those old gods.]
Are atheists saying that they know that DMSCs do not exist? How can they know that? And if not, what exactly are they saying?
