    Explaining Axiological theism, Axiological agnosticism, and Axiological

    I am going to roughly offer the understanding how axiological thinking
    interacts with differing theological beliefs.

    Axiological theism: is the thinking a god(s) or goddess(es) are real as
    well as valuable and we are enriched (all value, truth, morality are deity
    involved) because there is such a being(s) and we should worship it and
    would be worse off if such a being(s) did not exist (life would have no
    meaning, worth or value and there would be no way to judge morality)

    Axiological agnosticism: is the thinking I do not know if a such being as
    god(s) or goddess(es) exist neither can we evaluate the value and we thus
    lack the basis to value judge what benefits or harm they may encompass and
    such would probably not worship such a being(s) as we do not know if we
    should or should not. Likewise, we cannot form an opinion as to if we are
    better or worse if such a being(s) existed.

    Axiological atheism: is the thinking that no god(s) or goddess(es) exist
    and they lack all worth and value to humans even if they existed. Such myth
    should be rejected in favor of believing in humanity, seeing secularism and
    humanism as a kind of “higher absolute” or form of valued good. (Ie.
    humanity as the absolute source of ethics and values, and permits
    individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to god myths or
    religious philosophies). An axiological atheist could be thought of as
    thinking no gods no masters and thus would never worship a god or any being
    especially if it was by threat, force or the act of coercing to any extent.
    An axiological atheist may even question if any being is worthy of the
    title god or be ignostic that every theological position assumes too much
    about the concept of god and see this as extending to other theological
    concepts; including (but not limited to) concepts of faith, spirituality,
    heaven, hell, afterlife, damnation, salvation, sin and the soul. Thus
    regarding that as ridiculous and not worthy at all and should be shown
    Ridicule and Disdain. Therefore as you can guess they would say we are
    better off that no god(s) or goddess(es) existed and it would be much worse
    if they did.

    axiological attitudes toward God’s existence are axiological theism
    (thinking God’s existence to be a good thing), axiological atheism
    (thinking God’s existence to be a bad thing) and axiological agnosticism
    (indifference toward God’s existence).

    What the hell is an *”Axiological Atheist”* =/ ??

    *”ax·i·ol·o·gy The study of the nature of values and value judgments.”*
    *”axiological – of or relating to the study of values”*

    i do not get how the word is being used.

    im mean, if he was using it as a name; sure, its just his youtube name, but
    he says “im an X” instead of “hi im X”, its the way he introduces himself
    that bugs me a bit..

    Two of the 5 viewers voted down? But left no comments… drive by
    negativity. How nice. I’m only about 9 minutes in, but it’s interesting
    so far. I certainly would not have down-checked it.

    I suspect the two down-checks are people who read the title, and don’t even
    watch. Typical.

    Ya’know +BionicDance, you say “Ya’know” a lot at the end of every
    sentence, ya’know? XD,

    +Damien Athope Loved that story with the black guys protecting you from the
    white guys. I’d have actually said yes. +BionicDance Nice to learn your
    thoughts on a few really interesting topics. All in all, great video, you
    two. Thanks.

    Why not keep the term ‘Atheist’ without adding on the flowery bull-shit terms…?
