Atheism is not a belief but rather a lack of belief in gods, the default position we all come into the world with.
Christian theism is not a belief but rather a lack of belief in the non-existence of God.
Stop wearing that neutral hat, it doesn't fit. I don't have enough faith to believe what you believe. To boil down what you are telling me, is that unless I see the causer of something...I must not believe it was caused. But children come into this world with the basic understanding of cause and effect which then is the basic understanding of God and the universe.
No matter what you believe about god, the inclined plane behaves the way it does. No matter what you think about god, light refraction behaves per Snell's law
How do you know that light will always behave as light behaves? by faith? Your worldview does not tell me that it was designed and made to always be that way, but to me it was designed.
Just as a car. I can have faith in a car to work because it was designed (I also trust the designer of the car :)). However for you, no one made the car. How do know it will work consistently enough to test and use the different mechanisms in it. Just because it has does not necessarily mean it will.
And yet atheists try to map out the beginning of the universe...such faith they have in undesigned mechanisms.
