Cheers, I do believe that your belief in atheism requires as much Faith as to believe in GOD ~ no red flag needed :)
Why do you think everybody has to have a belief?

Just because you are brainwashed doesn't mean the rest of us are.

I don't have "belief in atheism."
And I don't require any faith.
I just don't believe in the supernatural. I don't believe in hexes, ghosts, astrology, witches, gods, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, none of that sort of stuff.
This shouldn't be difficult for you to understand. You probably don't believe in most of the supernatural stuff I mentioned, and as for gods, you don't believe in any of the over 10,000 gods that have been suggested in different places by different cultures over the years, except for one of those gods. So in effect you are an "atheist" about all gods except one of them.
I'm an atheist about that one too. So really, we aren't that far apart. We agree that 9,999 of the alleged gods don't exist, we only disagree as to one of them. Just one out of 10,000.
If you don't have a belief, why are you on here arguing about it?

Your doubt and unbelief has no affect on my faith. You’re powerless in your argument to convince me otherwise. Enjoy the darkness that you embrace. Your love of self defines who you are and what you stand for.

I believe and will always believe that God is real. I know that he is real even if you don’t.

Psalm 145
[A Psalm] of praise. Of David.

1 I will extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever [with grateful, affectionate praise].

2 Every day [with its new reasons] will I bless You [affectionately and gratefully praise You]; yes, I will praise Your name forever and ever.

3 Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; and His greatness is [so vast and deep as to be] unsearchable.

4 One generation shall laud Your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts.

5 On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wondrous works I will meditate.

6 Men shall speak of the might of Your tremendous and terrible acts, and I will declare Your greatness.

Atheistic mind:

Self centered and self elevated. Always believes they are more intellectual than the really are. Enjoy admiring themselves. What they say is absolute truth. Why?, because they said so. What you say does not matter. Why?, because you said it.

Vain to the center core of their belief. Their overly important self rises above all who challenge them. Arrogantly smug and their overly inflated self worth. Always in the indictment mode. Pointing the finger is a mainstay. All their accusations are true. Why?, because they said so, that makes it true.

Their sense of self exceeds the limits of what is normal. Narcissism has permeated into the root system of their mind. Channeling throughout their innermost recesses of their being. Mindlessly conceited and copiously self important to the degree of absurdity.

Admiring self and ones fanciful self absorbed and imaginary talent. Their wisdom is elevated by their superior high mindedness. They have obtained greatness in their own mind. They are their number one fan. Self rule and self guidance they navigate through life by self induced pride.

The atheistic mind is all about being self centered.“There is no god,” they say. Because they see no evidence in their inward looking self diagnostic analysis of self. Self being the center of the universe according to the wisdom of self.

“It must be quite galling for religious people to see atheists like me going about their business without a shred of guilt or self-loathing, and not in the least inclined to pray or to do penance of any kind, and not in the slightest bit worried about any form of eternal punishment. I have to admit if I was religious I'd probably think to myself: "How come I've got all this weight on my shoulders while these bums are getting a free ride?" – Condell

It makes a change from the religiously afflicted trying to push their old testament gibberish onto the whole of humanity in the same way they have for thousands of years.

Have you ever been to New Orleans?
I lived there for a few years and there is no other place like it. The cost of living isn't cheap there, but it is amazing how you can survive on so little, especially if you are just hanging out. It has its issues, but one of the neatest collections of people around. A good place to get your head together. Very mellow. Saved my ass.
Have you been to Venice Beach? Talk about a collection of people :)

Why do I have no belief? Cause there is no proof! The people who believe are completely different from the next believer! Atheists are not that far apart.
