In the context of my reply to an Ayn Rand devotee, there is little other explanation for your behavior.
Ayn Rand, BTW, was incorrect in some of her positions. Ron Paul is also incorrect in some of his positions. This does not greatly detract from my respect for either of them. They are individuals that think/thought for themselves.Interviewer: You do not accept the existence of a god, a divine prime mover?
Ayn Rand: No.
Interviewer: Now the reason you donít is because you canít prove that such an entity or being or energy exists.
Ayn Rand: I canít nor can anyone else. There is no proof.
Interviewer: There is no proof so therefore youíve concluded that there isnít one?
Ayn Rand: Thatís right.
Interviewer: You canít prove there isnít.
Ayn Rand: You are never called upon to prove a negative. Thatís a law of logic.
If you have a reference where Ron Paul defines atheism, that would be appreciated. Until then, you ought not to claim Ron Paul as supporting your perspective.
