Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Having many copies of written documents isn't evidence that the content of those documents is true.
You don't have 1 or 3.
I have more than 1 and 3 I have millions of eye witnesses over the past 4000 years some are dead and they have written their eye witness accounts down in millions of documents. And NO they are not only copies of the same document if I included the copies it would be 10s of billions of written document. I would gladly stand in court with that weight of evidence.

Middle East archaeology shows that the Bible was wrong on numerous things, including The Exodus, Joshua&Jericho, and the fall of the Babylonian Empire.

I'd like to know what drugs you're smoking.

You don't have any good eyewitnesses accounts of the supernatural claims of the Bible.

Getting mad, eh?
Don't blame me, blame the Bible.
After all, I'm only quoting what it says.
Here's another one:
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
There's that "fear God" thing again. You Christians sure got a lot of fear going on. LOL
By the way.
Did you read the bit about how it's every work that gets judged?
Nothing to do with faith.
No I am not getting mad I am laughing at your utter ignorance. If you are so ignorant of God and the Bible to make such stupidly ignorant statements then so be it.

Sorry but you have me wrong I am not a Christian, so lets get than straight.
Yes every work will be judged, and you posted the exact work that will be judged “Fear God, and keep his Torah” DO YOU KEEP HIS Torah, that is faith.

In one statement you have just proved your utter ignorance of the subject. All of the above have been archaeologically verified.

Fact is accompanied by evidence. Since you have none, that itself is evidence you are lying. Liar!

I am not on any drugs, perhaps you need to take you head out of the anti-God pit you are in and look around you to can find the truth if you want to, OH NO but you don't want to that would mean you are not in control of this world any more. By the way you may think you are in control but no you are not, not now not in eternity.

I'm glad you agree that the quotes I lifted from the Bible are stupidly idiotic.

If you can admit that then perhaps we're getting somewhere.

Facts remain facts and yes the type evidence for the existence of the God of the Bible can be used, lets see what it is
1) countless eye witnesses
2) millions of written documents
3) 4000 years of physical evidence
No problem Terry
Sure... but try and cross examine those countless nameless 'eye-wittnesses' that only exist in the text of the book the prosecutor is going to use against you.

Those "millions of documents" are all interpretations of the original text the prosecutor is going to use against you

4000 years of 'physical' evidences that are claimed to be holy relics and are not aloowed to be examined by your defense attorney, yet will still be used aginst you by the prosecutor.

Yeah... I'm sure having someone claiming they have "faith" that you are guilty based on that type of evidence would be fine and dandy with you.

If all that you say is in fact true, why is there a requirement of 'faith' in religion? After all, no 'faith' is needed if actual evidence exists to support the claims made.

There is no absence of religion is you believe there is no God in heaven then you still believe in another form of god.
You are oh so wrong, each one I mentioned have their respective god figures,
atheism-t here is no god in heaven we are all gods
darwinism and evolutionism evolution and science are god
humanism – we are all gods
materialism – my stuff is my god
Looks like you are the uneducated on or is it perhaps just the blind one.
