|Atheism is, properly, 'a - theism', with 'theism' defined as a belief in a deity or 'theos'.And here's the clincher - 'a' is the Greek for 'not', which means that 'a-theism' means 'not believing in a deity' - not, as has been claimed, another belief... it is the absence of a belief.|
Secondly, one does not 'prove' a negative. The burden of proof lies in the one who asserts "____ is", and a lack pf proof means that 'it' does not exist - for to exist, means to be measurable, and if not measurable, 'it' simply does not exist, no matter how much believed.
Thirdly, this "Christ" notion is NOT an integrated view of existance... indeed, quite the contrary, it is a mismash of contrary notions, full of inconsistancies... it may be considered a 'philosophy', in the primitive sense of the meaning, but little else - again, no matter how much believed.
That, then, is the crux - the need to understand that there is a crucial difference between 'knowing' and 'believing', that 'knowing ' comes from the use of the reasoning faculty [that is why one has it - that is what it is there for], and that 'believing', however much one may crave and demand its use, is at base wishfulness, a desiring to have an answering without substantiation, just because there is a feeling for it.
