It`s not really just a matter of semantics tho is it? It`s a matter of definition. To make an analogy, Jesus comes to earth and is welcomed by the Christians, the Agnostics (which in this Christian scenerio could also include people of different religious faiths) are hesitant to believe and ask him to perform several miracles. The Atheists however, don`t believe no matter how many "parlour tricks" he performs.

And to say that whether a person believes in God is not always a simple yes or no answer. What if I believe that god THINKS he is God....

@ggolbez: Um, NOT! I`m dead serious! A Christian (Muslims and Jews too for that matter) SEES GOD everywhere! For them? The "proof" is all around!
So in MY example: The Christian (Muslim or Jew works too) is explaining that science is incomplete without God. Of course the Atheist utterly rejects this.
NOTE: The puzzle (in my example) CANNOT ever be completed! That would amount to absolute proof which negates "faith". IMHO...

ACK! Where were you when I was trying to convince various IABers of that very fact? You`re correct: uncertainty is NOT belief: therefor "agnostics" are the same as Atheists (for all intents and purposes).

Nope, you`re all wrong.

The red speech bubble bunny is all of you, arguing about what analogy this is supposed to represent; whereas I`m the blue speech bubble bunny knowing that this is just a series of pictures about bunnies putting together a puzzle.

@jaysingrimm: To me that`s an argument of semantics. To ask "Do you believe in a God" is a yes/no answer. If yes, then you`re a believer. If no, then you`re an atheist. To say you`re an agnostic means that you don`t believe in a god but you are open to the possibility, which in turn means you don`t believe in a god and are thus an atheist. Just my opinion, however, and it is what based my original statement.

@5Cats: I see, you`re just trolling. And here I thought that internet meme died out. Regardless, you`re using a rhetorical fallacy known as "suppressed evidence". You are stating that science can not change with evidence, when it can. But keep on trolling, I know to ignore you now.

See, duckies are good, cause not only do they give you that non-threatening sense of security, but you can feed `em crackers and you can ride `em. See, duckies are the horsies of the ocean. No, I mean they are.

@SmagBoy1: Correct, because it`s a picture of a DUCKIE! :-> LOLZ! Lmao... just funning you dude!

@ggolbez: Ah! But consider this: The puzzle is the existence of God and the Box is science. Science does NOT allow the existence of God, but religious people see God`s existence everywhere! Thus they put the "God Puzzle" together and to them it`s obviously showing God, not science!

See?

I`ve seen plenty of "atheists" clinging blindly to their Faith, er, Belief! Non-belief? Oh you know!

@ggolbez

I think the term your looking for is "Agnostic", who will change their views based on evidence. True Atheists tend to persue their lack of belief in a deity with just as much fervour as a religious person in their own beliefs. Ironically then, the red bunny could easily represent both Atheists AND religious people.

@5cats: I don`t think the argument could be made that the atheist is the red bunny. An actual atheist changes his/her views based on evidence. No atheist holds true to their beliefs just because "a box says it`s a duck". However, every religious person holds to their beliefs of religion regardless of how much evidence is supplied to the contrary (if they did, they wouldn`t be religious anymore).

I was thinking evolution, i.e. missing link is the missing puzzle piece.

@SmagBoy [quote]No, it can`t be an analogy between anything. That assumes a correct thing and an incorrect thing. The bunny putting together the puzzle in this example is clearly correct.[/quote]

Yes, one bunny is correct, while the other insists on maintaining his/her false belief despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. How is that NOT an analogy to ANY debate? One is right, the other is wrong but insists he/she is right.

For example, people who supported the Iraq war back in 2003 to this day insist that weapons inspectors found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So how is this NOT an analogy of political views? When there is a political debate, quite often one view is "correct" and the other view is "incorrect" (eg. was Barack Obama born in Hawaii or Kenya? One is right, the other is wrong but won`t admit it despite overwhelming evidence.)

I`m going with box=Bible and puzzle=science. Faith vs common sense.

You guys are nuts. It`s clearly an analogy for religion. Can`t you see the puzzle pieces look different from the box?

the blue bunny is agent mulder, and the red bunny is agent skully. the picture box represents science, while the puzzle represents the supernatural. skully would always be like, "science tells us thats impossible." all the while the impossible is happening around them, where as agent mulder just wants to know the supernatural truth. also the colour scheme matches.

Substitute "global warming" for "duck" and you have the mindset of a liberal. Of course, global warming IS a religion to liberals.

No, it can`t be an analogy between anything. That assumes a correct thing and an incorrect thing. The bunny putting together the puzzle in this example is clearly correct. There is no other explanation. A single additional piece will NEVER make the picture a bunny. It`s not just wrong, it`s impossible. Look at the pieces there already.

That said, it can`t be about political parties or forms or size of government, unless you believe that there`s unequivocal proof that only one type of government works and no other types do, etc.

This *can* be about many things, but there`s plenty that it *can`t* be about, too.

There is no indication that it is an analogy for religion vs science. This could very well be an analogy for political views.

Why does everyone assume it`s between a religious bunny and an atheist bunny? Why couldn`t it be between an organized religion bunny and a freelance spiritual bunny?

Food for thought.

It`s supposed to be about religion, but it`s more apt applied to people who believe that more government works to make a better society.

Bunnies!

Everything is better with bunnies, even religion flame posts!

fyi: An argument could be made that either the pink OR red bunny is the "believer" in this case... (depends on who you view as the "atheist" eh?)

Very good analogy. Sad thing is, we are currently on the last frame and there are still a majority of people who are saying that it is a Duck.
