Understanding the Atheist Unbelief

I remember one of the minor stepping stones into me questioning my faith was the understanding of the burden of proof and the scientific method.  I did not understand that atheism was the ‘Lack of Belief’ in that it takes the default position.  I did not understand it is the negative position, in that it assumes nothing until proof is given.  And that there are many other schisms along the spectrum of belief, that I also did not understand. (I.E.: Theism, Agonisticsm, Deism).  These two videos below, were the two that really broke it down into laymens terms for me to understand.

About M. Rodriguez

When I first received Christ salvation, I made it a priority to read the whole bible and I did. But it was the Bible that made me question my faith. For I found it flawed and lacking. Due to this I launched a personal inquiry/investigation into my faith, and ultimately realized that the Christian God of the Bible was indeed man-made. Now I Blog about those findings and life after Christ.

    Beautiful – I even found a couple of articles that I’m going to point to in my series. Using the links you provided, I would have to say that I am a freethinking monotheist. Not that I believe in labels per se, since too many use them as a shortcut for listening. But in the appropriate context, they help.
