One of the dimmer comments on the subject today, but not an uncommon one. Speaks to the clientele, I guess. Just another tired iteration of Pascal's wager. Ugh.
It doesn't take any more faith on my part not to believe in a Judeo-Christian God than it takes me to belive that the hairball in the back of my closet isn't quitely controlling the universe. Because that proposition is every bit as absurd as the propositions that Christianity, or any other religion for that matter, is making. Are you an atheist with respect to Zeus? To Thor? To the hairball in my closet? How much faith does it take you to believe that the hairball in my closet isn't quietly controlling the universe?
The binary nature of atheist vs. Christianity arguement is a false duality and a silly way to frame it unless you're so arrogant to assume that Christianity is the one, out of all permutations of religion, to have gotten it right. Out of all the religions that ever existed, you picked the winner, and know you did as an article of faith, lol, aren't you a chosen one. In fact, Christianity is on equal ground with any other religion, or any other implausibility I could come up with, in terms of evidence and probability.
So no, it doesn't take any faith for me not to be at all convinced by the Christian God or any other. But I'm open to the possibility, I know I don't have all the answers, wouldn't be so arrogant to claim I had it all worked out. In fact, I'd distrust anyone who said they did without any evidence whatsoever.
