Faith is different than knowing. Religion requires faith in a smilie god/gods. Being atheist requires the knowledge of science/knowing science is right. It does not take faith to know something and it does not take knowledge to have faith.

I never said anything about science. I was talking about whether or not God exists. Science does not prove or disprove his existence. Since his existence cannot be proven or disproven it takes faith to believe or not believe in him if we're going by webster's defintion of 'faith'.

richard dawkins?

Now I'm confused
