This puts the Atheist in the same boat as the theist: with a belief that lacks any evidence.

ahem.
a- = without
theism = belief in a deity
atheism = without belief in a deity

Agnosticism and atheism aren't mutually exclusive. You can be an agnostic atheist (i.e. you don't believe in any god and you claim there is no way to know this for fact) or you can be a gnostic atheist (i.e. you don't believe any god and you claim to know this as fact). Most atheists are agnostic atheists.

The Courts

Prof. Nesson Ordered To Show Cause 267

Posted by kdawson
from the does-not-sound-good dept.
NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "Professor Charles Nesson, the Harvard law professor serving pro bono as counsel to the defendant in SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum, has been ordered to show cause why sanctions should not be issued against him for violating the Court's orders prohibiting reproduction of the court proceedings. The order to show cause was in furtherance of the RIAA's motion for sanctions and protective order, which we discussed here yesterday. The Judge indicated that she was 'deeply concerned' about Prof. Nesson's apparent 'blatant disregard' of her order."

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
