No, afraid you've got it all backwards....again.<quoted text>
Which is the real delusion? The theist does not say he knows with certainty that God exists, he says he believes it. His belief in God therefore does not demand proof since it is based on faith. The atheist, on the other hand, claims to be quite certain that there is no god. Since he claims to be contemptuous of unsupported belief, he must provide some firm foundation for his knowledge." This he can never do. If there are no proofs that God or gods exist, there are also no proofs they do not exist. The atheist is just as unscientific as he claims the theist is. His stance is just as mired in belief as the theist. The atheist needs to realize that atheism is a belief just as firmly planted in irrationality, in ego and desire, as it claims theism is. Atheism has no proof and no possible proof. It is unscientific. Like all human beliefs, it is conjecture based on a hunch.
I have no belief in a god, why should I? Thor, Zeus, Mithras, Allah, Jehova....they're all the same.
All xtians I know (can't speak for ALL like you presume to do) insist that they KNOW a god exists, their faith tells them so. They believe that their heart (a muscle) has been touched, they say that their god has answered their prayers (yep, there is always a 50/50 chance that something will happen one way or another) and many swear it's true that they or someone they know has been the recipient of a 'miracle'(if you got sick but didn't die, that's a good thing, but it would have happened anyway).
Now, again, I have no belief in a god....continued lack of evidence supports this.
You, I take it, have no belief in Thor, Zeus, etc., I just lack belief in one more god than you do. Of the tens of thousands of gods/goddesses/spirits/demons/ angels/pixies/all the stuff people make up to feel safe and cling to the notion of some supernatural afterlife have had their time and passed. So will your god.
