Response to Brainstormy (Reply #26)

32. it's not any such attempt to show that atheism is a form of faith.

 

it does show that non-believers have a *tendency*.. this is *psychology*, hellO.. to turn to belief that scientific thinking can help them. this is not religious belief, but mundane and rational beliefs.. like that my car won't blow up.

if you can't see the distinction, then i don't know what to say.

i am by any measurement a 'strong' atheist.. some would say 'anti-theist' around here, though i don't like the term.. and i get what this study shows, even if you don't.

Raw Story 'got it' too.. and they're about as Big-Red-A and /r/atheism-friendly an alt news source as exists.
