My atheism is ultimately faith based


My atheism is ultimately faith based

My atheism derived from my observation of reality,
since the accuracy of observation cannot be proven,
conviction in my understanding of reality is therefore an exercise in faith.
Thus, my atheism is ultimately faith based,
as with almost all forms of knowledge,
except for the existence of self.
(hat tip: René Descartes for “cogito ergo sum“, and Monicks for my muse.)

  1. Of course atheism is based on faith, it is the explicit believe that there is no God (or god). The only really faithless view is that of a total agnostic that does not know, and does not care, about the existence of any divinity.
