Part of the Oxford English Dictionary definition of the word 'atheism' is 'the belief that there is no God'. It is true that that is not the sole definition but it is entirely valid to use the word in that way. If I understand Ron Davies correctly his point is that, given that definition, the belief in the non-existence of God is as much an act of faith as belief in the existence of God. None of this proves anything and the fact that I have posted to this thread is indicative that I have far too much time on my hands.
I hope you return to robust health very quickly Steve. I am glad the surgery went well.
Farewell to this thread and all who insist on keeping it alive, my only question is, why? (Don't answer that, I won't respond.)
