For communication to be effective everyone needs to agree on what the terms being discussed mean.
To that end I am going to give my baseline, working definitions for ‘Atheism’ and for ‘Faith’. These are complicated by other factors but we’ll keep them absolutely as simple as possible at this point.
Atheism: Nothing more than the personal, positional statement ‘I don’t believe in god/s’. This may be for many reasons and exists to various degrees but all Atheism is, in and of itself is that. ‘I don’t believe in god/s’.
And then, at least in terms of religious/supernaturalist discussions…
Faith = (Belief – Evidence)
These are the bases upon which discussions and posts on this blog will build and continue.
