[QUOTE="deepdreamer256"] Define 'broad sense'. At least for what I consider the definition of atheism, "disbelief in the existence of deities", to me that represents that an atheist has faith that a God does not exist.sSubZerOo
Faith by definition for most people is believing in the supernatural, so how can an atheist have "faith" and how exactly are they just as faith based? Basically if one asks "do you have faith?" they ask if you believe in a God, not if you don't believe in one. You wouldn't say "Yes I have faith in that there is no God."
That is inncorrect.. You can have faith in many things outside of the supernatural.. Having faith in your friends that they won't let you down.. Having faith in the car your driving doesn't fall apart or explode as you drive it..
True, but atheists don't have faith in a God, so it's not faith based.
