Look, if English isn't your first language type your posts in your native language and we can use google translations to figure out what you are trying to say.

That would be best I think.

At Starbucks just this morning I was discussing this with a believer who was humiliating himself to the waitress about the evils of evolution. So I asked him what was it about evolution that upset him so much.
He gave the usual rundown about how scientists today question certain facets of evolution, to which I responded that scientists question facets of all scientific theory it's how we progress. He continued on with the typical fundie talking points and I just smiled and shot them down one at a time and again asked him, you don't get upset over the theory of gravity do you? So what is it about evolution specifically that upsets you so much?
Finally he caved and admitted that if evolution is correct, god as he knows him can't exist. That the theory of evolution was trying to destroy faith in god.
I told him that evolution is merely observable fact. We see it in the fossil record as well as in genetic testing and that the evidence is only growing stronger by the day, but that doesn't show his god doesn't exist... The lack of any evidence whatsoever tells us the story on that lol!
The waitress thanked me for getting him off her back for a while as he is a regular who rambles on with her like Dave I guess.

Most atheists have "Faith" that:

1. Intelligent Design is not being taught in public school

2. Organized Prayer is not being held in public school

Most public school teachers are Christian.:-)...as are all the Presidents of the US.

Supreme Court will crack down?

Six members of the Supreme Court are Roman Catholic.

I've no opinion on that.

As most people live outside of America it shouldn't come as a surprise that most Atheists live outside of America so it is unlikely that most Atheists will be as you described in your previous post regarding faith.

No, people (regardless of religious faith or lack of any) have 'reason to believe'(it). That is quite different from having religious faith which is unsubstantiated.

Religion = superstition

Lincoln calls himself a person of faith.(I assume he'll correct me if I'm mistaken)

...some faith in logic and wonder at the mystery of life and the universe.
.... many of the interesting questions seem to have answers which are unsubstantiated ? bummer

Possibly. As that now excludes me, I can't judge.

Many atheists seem upset if Intelligent Design,a rather harmless Christian idea, is mentioned in Public Schools ?

(Public Schools are tax supported in the US, opposite in the UK?)
