You have forfeited your ownership of your own thoughts. Hence, even if the thought arises, “I have no belief in God” - the “I” in that sentence is a fabrication. You cannot be an Atheist, because “you” do not exist.
Can you really be this obtuse by accident? You claimed "to be Atheist is to believe in one’s own Self", and of course it is not. Atheism is just the lack of belief in a deity or deities. This does not mean that an atheist cannot believe in their self. Your command of English is execrable if you think those two assertions are mutually exclusive.
"You cannot be an Atheist, because “you” do not exist."
Christ you don't half talk nonsense. You are conflating atheism with claims that have nothing to do with atheism. That aside there is objective evidence that I exist, and that I have a functioning human brain, and that this produces thoughts, as you have been told before and dishonestly ignored, and are now ignoring again. There is no objective evidence for any of yous asinine claims for anything supernatural being required, or involved.
The brain exists, and thoughts exist only where there is a material functioning brain. Paradoxically no one can demonstrate any objective evidence for anything supernatural, and in every instance where a human brain dies the thoughts associated with that person cease. What's more neurologists can map brain activity and we have objective evidence that when the brain is damaged different functions are impaired depending on which part of the brain is damaged and depending on how badly damaged.
Again I ask, and will keep asking, apart form argumentum ad ignorantiam fallacy you jave used from the start, what OBJECTIVE evidence can you demonstrate for your bizarre claim that human thoughts are caused by an external supernatural cause? What objective evidence can you demonstrate for that supernatural deity anyway?
The answer as we have see again and again is nothing, you have nada, your claims are the worst kind of vapid fallacious nonsense. Your relentless strident and dismissive posts won't change this.
Argumentum ad ignorantiam means an argument from ignorance. It is negative evidence. It is a logical fallacy that provides that a statement is true only because it has not been proven false, or a statement is false only because it is not proven true.
Put that abnormally large penis back in your pants, Sheldon. You’re intimidating the rest of the guys.
That's called deflection, you're obfuscating.
Re: "Put that abnormally large penis back in your pants, Sheldon. You’re intimidating the rest of the guys."
*sadly looking down at own crotch*... *speaking in reassuring voice*... There-there, little guy. It's okay. You have nothing to be ashamed of..... *gently patting crotch*....

Hey. We have to have some fun while we are here.
Average penis sizes around the world
@ rat spit
Really dude? I ain't clicking that link.
LOL. Alright. Be like that. Here’s the spoiler - biggest average penis size? The Congo at a whopping 7.3 inches!
Other interesting facts. World average? 5.5 inches. Canada’s average? 5.5 inches.
And apparently in France you can get a baguette just about anywhere you go.
From the man who claimed there were no such thing as objective facts.
The wheel keeps spinning but the rat is dead.
No more Cognostic. I can’t take this abuse. I’ll ... I’ll ... I’ll report you to the CIA. I’ll tell them all about your hostage typewriting monkey program.
My monkey training program is going just fine. You would be surprised what people are willing to pay for.
LMAO. The way he grabs his chin - deep in thought. A true master.
@Cog Re: Monkey on keyboard
Hey! That looks disturbingly a lot like the way I type on my computer! Except the monkey seems to be doing a better job.
C'mon dude. Quit bragging about how you are so much better at typing than I am. Sheez.

You can donate your body to my next business adventure and I promise you will be more liked in death than you are now in life.
My people ... *wiping away the tears* what have you done to my people?
@Rat Spit Re: "My people ... *wiping away the tears* what have you done to my people?"
Aw, c'mon now, Ratty! Be honest. You know it would be freakin' awesome to be made into a flying drone after you die. Personally, I wouldn't mind one bit if somebody did that to me when I finally check out. lol
I may not be correct, but I think you would be too heavy for a drone. We just might have to convert you to single-seater airplane.
Hmmm... Yeah, you may be right. Might even need a turbo jet engine.
Well it's been some time, but it feels only right to dust this down and apply it...
utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, utter bollocks.
We all have our personal self-awareness and internal dialogues.
But I understand that what I hear in my mind is a fabrication of my mind and not the thoughts of others, be it people, deities, or any imaginary creatures. And because of that I can differentiate between reality and fantasy.
Ratspit, I don’t for a moment believe you are saying any of this tripe for any purpose other than pure entertainment.
Hey, at least it is entertaining to me. I have gotten good belly laughs...
Yeah, I like ol' Rat Spit. He's good for morale around here.... *chuckle*... I rather enjoy his type of humor.
Well, that’s disconcerting - considering you’re a moderator. Um. Well, perhaps my analysis is making the Atheists a little uncomfortable. If I were a troll, the signs would be clearer. I haven’t deviated from my original point of view - ie. there is a Supreme Being - and I am in contact with him. But if you’re going to pin me down as a troll - then I can just stick to the odd penis joke now and then.
This is what the Overload has in store for us all. This is what happens when Rat Spits apologetics succeed. Is the Overlord really the Mother Goddess?
Yes! Yes!!! My people! Finally getting the worship they deserve. And their devotees! Many blessings upon them are bestowed by the OverLord!
I was thinking your kidnapped monkey typewriter program is more reminiscent of this:
