73. If you believe something doesn't exist...
That is a belief... I don't understand why you are so scared to be labeled with that word. I'm not talking about the "believer" in the evangelical sense.

And even from your explanation, of course it takes faith to believe something is not there. As long as you have limited information, everything takes "faith" you could say. The laws of logic cannot explain everything, humanity cannot explain everything.

But what is this horror with the word "believe"? If you believe there is no God, does that somehow hurt atheism's argument?
