Atheist Meme of the Day: Atheism Is Not Faith

Scarlet letter Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Atheism is not just as much a matter of faith as religion. Atheism is a provisional conclusion, based on the currently available evidence. If atheists see better evidence for God in the future, we’ll change our minds. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

    I’m glad you use the word “better” as a qualifier for evidence.
    It’s my contention that no one, especially the religious, has anything that amounts to what can be described as “faith”.
    Theists, I think, have more credulity than the rest of us. They actually believe that certain stories told in ancient texts are either 100% literally true, or are “true enough” in a metaphorical sense so they should build their lives around belief in that evidence.
    The rest of us say, “meh”. Snakes don’t talk, even metaphorically, and someone who had the power to multiply loaves and fishes would have been better served by multiplying the collection plate so everyone could have a nice dinner at Outback Steak House instead of a few measly crusts of bread and some dried fish.
