Agree or Disagree

An atheist is a person of great faith.

Atheists have no faith.

But they do have a belief, and a strange one at that. They believe that there is no God, in spite of the lack of concrete evidence either way.

An Atheist puts great faith in themselves.

Great faith in the Lord is void from such a persons life - until they can ask...

Having come from an extended family of atheists (and having many atheist friends), I can assure you that there is no guarantee that atheists have faith in themselves.

It just depends on the person. Some are filled with self-doubt, and hold onto atheism as an affiliation that gives them a sense of superiority over believers and agnostics. Those are usually the most aggressive ones.

To have faith means to believe in something and to act accordingly. Christians have faith in God, atheists have faith in the absence of God.

Thanks, Pablo, Thimscool, and WW. All good comments. Well, except about the atheists have no faith part. ;)
