Doesn’t it require as much faith to be an atheist then it does to believe in a God?
‘Faith’ by definition means to believe in something without evidence. Atheism is simply the absence of belief, or the rejection of the claim for gods. It wouldn’t make much sense if I told you that it takes as much faith NOT to believe in unicorns than it does to believe in them. In the absence of evidence, it takes faith to believe that unicorns exist.
