"A-theist" literally translates to "without-theistic belief".

I'm an atheist. I don't take the stance that there is no God, but I take the stance of we don't know. I do believe that like the hundreds of religious belief and their subsets before, the big three right now lack any sufficient reasoning or evidence to back their belief in their God(s).

Just because someone doesn't believe in the current idea of God, doesn't mean that they believe there cannot be one.

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.

Getting off the topic of atheism for a second, Bernake sent thank you notes to key members of Congress for voting against audit the fed bill. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81758.html

Maybe wait a year for the charter to expire and it won't be renewed perhaps?
