Believe what you want to believe - or "believe in" whatever, it matters not to athiests like me or the universe in general. I have no argument with persons of faith - yet I have no need of faith, no need to "believe in" something.
Truth is what one chooses to believe - fact generally manifests in the material, corporeal realm.
Thoughts and Ideas are free, but if you catch one and decide it is the "truth" you've just turned an idea into a belief and if you elevate the importance of that belief eventually you'll manifest "faith". And all of this can be accomplished between your two ears, without any external influence. So choose your delusions wisely.

Wow, you just cited conservapedia on philosophy? I'm sorry, but that's just idiotic.
The burden of proof is on the claimant, not the skeptic. Atheists are people who are not theists. That makes theists the ones making a claim. An atheist may make a counter-claim, but until that actually happens they do not have the burden of proof.
Seriously, don't argue against someone who actually does philosophy with Conservapedia which has been shown to be wrong on...just...so so so so so many things. And what I find sad is that it shines a bad light on those conservatives who are actually reasonable. It also shines a bad light on nonChristian conservatives. It also shines a bad light on...well...just about any sane person who would self-identify as a conservative.
