That's unchartiable. Philosophers philosophize for a living. One topic of philosophy from ancient times up until now is whether there is a god. Whether you like it or not, it remains a vibrant area of debate among professional philosophers. Perhaps the matter is settled for you, but who cares? You're not scholarly philosophy.

You are right. I'm not "scholarly philosophy". But I might be a scholarly philosopher. You have no way of knowing.
And here is Mr Lowder himself:

For a variety of reasons, I ended up never even applying to grad school. I've continued to study philosophy independently and would love to go to grad school at some point, but I have no plan to do so anytime soon.
