Excellent point -- well said

". . . atheism is not a worldview but simply a single position regarding a single claim about the existence of God . . . "

Non-Theist

If you stop claiming knowledge of invisible, undetectable unicorns, I will stop challenging your claim. Same goes for gods

ANY of the thousands of "gods" proposed, imagined, worshiped, loved, feared, and/or fought over by humans MAY exist -- awaiting verifiable evidence

For a quick tutorial on science vs. religion, compare modern internet weather radar to ancient religious beliefs and superstitions about weather

Another informative and thought provoking post!
To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods.

Great point. Tower of Babel = bible (God's supposed word) that we can't get an accurate translation of.

Society and its morals evolve and will continue to evolve. The bible however remains the same and just requires more and more apologetics and claims of "metaphors" and "symbolism" to justify it.

Prayer is like rubbing an old bottle and hoping that a genie will pop out and grant you three wishes.

There is much about this world that is mind boggling and impressive, but I see no need whatsoever to put it down to magical super powered beings.

So brilliant and simple, it burns!

To continue to argue for the Hebrew invention of God is actually an insult to the very concept of a God. - Divine Insight

Who would be proud these tactics?

I would love to hear a refutation to that.

"What is your response to people from non-Christian religious traditions who give the exact same explanation in defense of their particular application of faith? Obviously, you find that defense compelling or you wouldn't have offered it. So, if it is acceptable to apply faith in the way you've described for your belief in Christianity, it must also be acceptable to apply faith in the same way for other beliefs."

Beautiful! Hoping for a reply to this one!
You can build a man a fire and he will be warm for a day, or you can set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

You can give a man a fish and he will be fed for a day, or you can teach a man to pray for fish and he will starve to death.

I blame man for codifying those rules into a book which allowed superstitious people to perpetuate a barbaric practice. Rules that must be followed or face an invisible being’s wrath. - KenRU

It is sad that in an age of freedom some people are enslaved by the nomads of old. - Marco

Point of order, many men were named Joshua, only one was named Jesus - Christ.
