It may be me but I think the word for that is agnostic, not atheist. By atheism you assume and afirm there's no god, not even the slightest possibility for its existence.
Anyway... I think I go with agnostic for myself. And although I'm a man of sciences, I gotta say that sciences arén't the absolute truth, even if we're réal sure about something.... and everything looks coherent.... we máke it look coherent because mankind is not stupid and won't build knowledge on an evidently self-contradictory basis... but still those assumptions cannot be taken as the absolute truth. I mean, of course we should claim those "truths" with comfidence, but... you know, adding a "but shit happens" at the end.
and yeah... since all of this is a matter of faith I don't think anybody's gonna "win" this kind of fight ever..... but it's nice to see people's different points and views. I had a nice read with all those posts.
