Atheism is NOT a 'faith', it's 'UNBELIEF', the exact opposite...of faith.

NOT faith.
Can I explain this to you?
Prolly not.
But knowledge tells us 16 oz. is a pound.
How much faith do you have in this knowledge?
Tomorrow 14 oz. may be a pound? Or will a pound be 16. oz. tomorrow?
It's not faith telling us it will be.
It however IS knowledge...that 16 oz.= 1 pound.
Today tomorrow and until.....the end of time./

sigh....

Being an atheist means you have no belief there is a deity.

Atheism is the belief there is no deity.

Didn't they teach you that in atheism school?

That is what is called the rational viewpoint. Which is very different than the rational viewpoint Topix atheists have.
Careful. They have tendencies to express their rationality in very emphatic ways. Watch for flying spittle as their mouths start to move. And stay out of arm's reach.
Come on, Dave, spill it all out.

Atheism does require faith like religion. Perhaps not as much but that depends on how much faith you have in science and how much has been scientifically discovered so far.
Do you also think it requires faith to not believe in leprechauns?

I haven't read much of it, I just saw the thread and thought the title nailed it, both belief systems require faith.
So people are actually arguing atheism does not require faith? That is silly to say nothing exists that we don't know.
All science is, is mans best guess so far, and that is eternally subject to change.
Atheism is a lack of belief in deities. No faith required.

Well, the 'special' flood in the bible wasn't your run-of-the-mill event now was it?
A smarter question would be 'if there waqs a flood that sunk the entirety of land on Earth in the past, then why doesn't that ever happen any more?'
Oh dude…don't make them whip out the rainbow story….

Not committing adultery will let you differentiate between wrong and right
And so on

I have a 80 oz. hammer that will make you see 5 lbs. clearly for once and for all.

You'd be calling me Thor after that, but you will have to say it by unzipping your fly first. lol

Sheeit. A five pound hammer.

LOL!!

I've swung a 12 pounder while hanging off ropes on greasy steel 150 feet off the ground.

Come back when you get a real hammer, and know how to swing it, little boy.

Earthquakes can be quite impressive.

You would do better with a balloon. Or a gyrocopter.

You do have shark repellent in that kit with the flotation devices? Could come in handy. When that dinner bell rings they come a running. Tofu eating Californians. Yummy. But they will eat anything.
