Debate:Is it possible to be conservative and know there is no possibility of there ever being a "God" and/or higher being?

Most of the people I know call me conservative-independent, because I believe in many values such as unsociallised medicine, taxation favouring the wealthy, etc. However, I am also an ardent atheist. Would I be classified as conservative?

Yes

I've encountered and listened to several people label themselves as a conservative while they eschew almost every leftist point in the book. They consider themselves middle of the road or moderate conservatives. Sometimes you can even reason with them until they agree with conservatism until a day or week later when they've returned to original middle of the road or moderate positions. Usually anyone not a hardcore radical leftist who think being to the right of the extreme makes them conservative. It is a label of convenience for a person that tolerates any opinion but will rarely, if ever, take a stand on anything.--Roopilots6 12:51, 18 May 2009 (EDT)

No

Are you familiar with Libertarian values? If a moniker should be applied to you, it sounds like that would be appropriate. --NicholasT 11:38, 17 April 2009 (EDT)

Absolutely not! You cannot "know" there is no God, because God exists, and if you "know" there is no God, you are simply denying His existance. Furthermore being a conservative by definition means you value culture, culture means you value religion! --IScott 18:58, 7 June 2009 (EDT)
But yet it is possible to value a religion without believing it.--Harrymd 16:40, 29 June 2011 (EDT)


You know that conservative beliefs are political and economic, right? what does God have to do with Free market and small government? And to say that you can't know there is no God because it's not true is ignorant.
