Faith is useless.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

So what I'm seeing here is that the word faith has only a religious meaning? When did the theists co-opt this word again? If anything, I think the theists have applied a meaning to the word that should not be there. Thats why I call it blind faith...to distinguish it from real faith.
All I'm saying is irreligion is not a faith. Atheists, like everybody else, are susceptible to placing their faith in any number of things and propositions. However, the claimed existence of a god is not one of them. Otherwise, the word atheist makes no sense.

Atheism addresses only what one does not believe. Nothing more.
