You must have something to have faith in. What would Atheism have faith in?

I agree that atheism takes a lot of faith, except its faith in "it all happened somehow" rather than "a great powerful being we can't really understand created it all" – which by the way, makes a lot more sense to me than the 'somehow' theory. For one thing, whenever there is a genetic change-an aberration-it is a mutation, and always ends up in a negative result. Never in the advancement of the species (which is not the same as natural selection). I may not be able to understand He who we call God, but I can accept His existence!
"I agree that atheism takes a lot of faith, except its faith in "it all happened somehow"

That makes NO sense. How can one have faith in "it all happened somehow?"

Nicely done, there may be hope for you yet. That was a positive claim, and you caught me on it, I cannot prove that your god is a lie, but your religion is based on many lies, thus, it is a valid assumption until proven otherwise.
But an assumption nonetheless....

Actually by now there are more. So how could there be so many variations all claiming to be the only one who is right? How could a god allow such a thing to go on for centuries?
I see you are unable to answer, not even a last ditch effort!
Lmfao!:))

There's not 60,000 versions of Christianity so how could there be "many more"??

No you always ran away from this fact and you know it. It is true and I have never seen a Christian show how this is incorrect.
The onus is on you, pal. You're the one with the claim:

"Christianity states a non Christian can kill his family, go to prison, convert to Christianity and go to heaven"

Not really, I didn't realize it was a joke is all and was going to use it as an example, but if it was a joke, meh.

Yes, it's a safe and sane assumption though considering the lack of evidence. Never once have I stated there can be no god, but until I see actual, verifiable, demonstrable evidence, not just a "feeling" by anyone, including myself, I will not accept it as fact, that is what a skeptic is, we doubt everything until we can see analyze the evidence for ourselves. You seem to be assuming that I am simply denying your god, that's not it, I deny all the gods proposed by humans thus far. One day someone may discover something that is a god out there, and present verifiable and demonstrable evidence for it, then I will accept it as fact. Until then, it is nothing but mythology.

Zeus is a god, same rules apply to it as do your god.

Black holes are a catch phrase anyway to describe something that is "missing," actually. Ignore the Hollywood crap about them, utter nonsense.

Emotions we have already demonstrated how evidence for those is obtained, putting aside the completely arbitrary definitions of them.

Thanks, HairyBetty.

I didn't even know.

Both my parents ran away before I was born.
