He got fired from editing The Mirror newspaper as a result of lying about Iraq. So maybe GWB can put him up? The Iraq liar Blair is clearly too busy bringing peace to the Middle East to help you.

I all ready gave the answer to this question. I can't prove it to you.
1. You may not have one
2. Your reading comprehension may not be good enough.
3. You are so against the notion, which goes back to reason #1, such books do not carry your attention.

If you were honestly interested you would invest the time and money. Your hobby here is not soul searching it is denying. I would never carry out a conversation with someone I think is lying.

Atheism absolutely requires as much faith as any other religion.

Science uses the senses to repeatedly observe tested hypotheses. The fact that we're not able to sense God with our standard senses exempts this whole topic from science. You can't prove one way or the other. Anyone who tries claiming God exists or doesn't exist is saying so out of blind faith, and nothing more.

Logically speaking, it's easier to assume there was a creator of the universe. However, it is also possible to logically conclude there was not. Logic, reason, nor science are able to give a definite answer on this, and any claim for a definite conclusion one way or the other is based on faith.

Atheism is simply the rational position that there's no such thing as gods or pixies.

Religion = superstition

Many religionists sound like fools, e.g. homosexuality causes paedophilia..
http://euobserver.com/lgbti/29886
"A Roman Catholic bishop has called on EU leaders who are Christians to speak out against the Vatican if it makes "stupid" remarks, such as a recent declaration that homosexuality causes paedophilia."

Godbothering Creationists should be familiar with that 'belief', but secular society educated most of them in the end :-)

Your hobby is called "confirmation bias".

Many superstitions are good advice. do not walk under ladders. It is advice from an ancient group of writings with a style of the eras involved.
