I have now answered your longer post which you re-posted in the Fireplace board. You can find my response at:
Long story short, I would that theists and atheists could live together harmoniously, just as I would that monogamists and polyamorists could live together harmoniously. As for freewill, one must believe in a soul to believe in freewill. Since I doubt the existence of a soul, there you have it.
There are essentially three parts to religious/spiritual beliefs:
- belief in God/s,
- belief in a soul,
- belief in an afterlife.
I have 3% or less belief in all three of those things, so although I technically could call myself an agnostic (as 3% is not 0%), I figure "atheist" is the least misleading term.
Anyway, you can read my longer post in the Fireplace board.
