Teen forum students discuss
I do see the difference between 'no gods exist and 'the gods presented by religions don't exist. That said, even that statement is a statement of faith. I recognize that there is absolutely no way to know, one way or another, if a deity exists. At the same time, I'm an atheist. There is no evidence whatsoever for gods. As a result, I take the default position that they don't. That is, at least in part, an emotional position. I really do not understand why people have such difficulty admitting that emotion plays a part in their decisions and beliefs.
