Bold notes - are the notes from the powerpoint. Highlighted terms - are key terms to know. Notes with - in front are my notes beyond what is on the screen. Different types, ideologies, and ways of doing atheism: is an atheist one who lacks belief in god?" - negative atheism. Makes you have to prove there is a god they don"t have to prove their side: used to gain a rhetorical advantage. Attaches a burden of proof on theism and not on them: i"m not the one making my claims about reality . Makes you look like you"re defining reality: or must an atheist believe that there is no god?" - positive atheism, negative atheism is unhelpful as a definition of a worldview. Doesn"t really get at the question being asked. This is what we don"t believe: it places atheists in the same category as rocks and coffee.
