This entire thread has been proving that atheism is not a faith based position, more recently with me explaining that agnostic atheism IS atheism, and that it is what most atheists technically are. Atheists don't believe in god because he cannot be proven. Atheists tend to believe in what has been proven. No faith is required to believe in what is proven, faith is required to believe in something that goes beyond the scope of what has been proven, which atheists do not. If god were proven, atheists would believe in him.
