To say that atheism requires faith is as dim-witted as saying that disbelief in pixies or leprechauns takes faith. Even if Einstein himself told me there was an elf on my shoulder, I would still ask for proof and I wouldn’t be wrong to ask.

I'm confused as to what sort of evidence you expect. Physicalist evidence? Do you think such a narrow scope of study is likely to reveal the existence of a transcendent absolute. Look I'm drunk but the answer lies in Plato's cave. If you are looking for something outside of the physical you aren't going find it for two reasons.
There is no separation between us and the metaphysical
All contemporary modes of study focus on the physical.
OK I lied, you should familiarize yourself with the theory of forms. An accidental stumbling upon by Greeks of an older....principle.
Christ I don't think this is very clear at all.
So about that alesmith. Cheers boys.
