Yes, and I would rather be a certified nut than be an Atheist. It's because my beliefs are so much better than dying and becoming worm meat. If you could prove your stuff as fact, perhaps you shouldn't even share it then. As if that day would ever come. Actually it is true, for you.

Answer is we do not... Atheism requires no faith.
Many theists will say; atheists must have faith that god does not exist”. That statement is false for a few reasons.
Most atheists are agnostic atheists,
and they do not completely rule out the existence of some kind of UNdefined god(s),
but rather, they find god(s) to be improbable, see no evidence that would indicate god-belief is rational, or both.
Faith does not play a role here, facts are whats important.
And just because we dont know how the universe or life originated does NOT prove gods existence,claiming that god created all,is an argument from Ignorance Fallacy.,,a belief without evidence!
Until theists prove god exist,its only rational to remain atheist
So Faith is not necesary to be atheist
Nice try, not really. Let's start this conversation when you could PROVE how The Universe was started, most likely when that happens another detail will kill your hopes. If you gave it no thought and did not discuss it. Maybe, but just maybe. You wouldn't be able to prove that any way.

"So Faith is not necesary to be atheist "

Absolutely true. The only requirement is some mental or emotional issue not mitigated by medication.

Robert, I'm sorry, but the scientific research that was done for creation has been proven as fact.... that doesn't mean that there is not more out there to be questioned and to find answers for, but the big bang has been stated as factual.

I just read about this day before yesterday... You should have a look at it. It is very interesting and pretty cool if you are interested in science at all :)

At that moment is was accepted fact, that it was the start. Now it being the start is a theory.

Sorry but string is still theory. It is interesting it is a top contender. It does not answer if Theist or atheist are correct. Perhaps when proven it would.

In science a theory is something that has been tested and proven.

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on knowledge that has been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experimentation. Scientists create scientific theories from hypotheses that have been corroborated through the scientific method, then gather evidence to test their accuracy. Scientific theories are the most reliable, rigorous, and comprehensive form of scientific knowledge. This is significantly different from the word "theory" in common usage, which implies that something is unsubstantiated or speculative.

I have doubts that Atheists or theists, either one, will ever get a final answer for this. Some people are more sure... I try not to dwell on it too much, cause I'm almost certain that if the "answer" ever does come out for sure, I will probably be well dead and gone.

Nope-- the burden of PROOF is all on YOU, hatetheist.

You are the one making the idiotic claim "god".

It is up to YOU to prove this idiotic idea "god" is worth while.

Google Pigeon Chess.

You are playing the part of the pigeon.

I lost it, mostly from reading the **whole** bible, but also from other examples of god **never** acting ...

The fact that there is god-preventable EVIL in the world?

Is sufficient proof all by itself-- that no god who **CARES** exists at all.

Your beliefs of which you have NOTHING to support them.

NOT EVEN A SINGLE ARGUMENT IN SUPPORT OF THEM.

Sad, really.

Note the correlation to EM in the first link. Note also there isn't much air around auroras and radiation belts.
I will not bring up old Dave's past posts about EM and its universal aspects.

That was fiction.

You are really confused about what you know and think.

Those kind of noises don't have to announce the presence of a deity. You seem to think like a fundie.

You are used to looking at things outside you, as far as your physical world goes. There is a whole bunch that can happen through you, and from the inside. For all your talk about science and physics, you haven't grasped the basic idea of modern physics on how things work.

Atoms are byproducts of the creation of the universe, as were their particles. Everything started at the same place and is connected to each other from that expansion. Read up on the BBT. Get a perspective of what it was, not just a blind acceptance of something happening that resulted in you reading about it.

But you probably aren't bright enough to do that.
