How have u defined atheism? Believing nothing?It doesn't require me to have faith for me being an atheist. It's a false assumption to state that being an atheist requires faith. Despite your "personal feelings". If atheism requires one to have faith, then atheism would not be atheism (by definition), therefore your remark is self-contradictionary.
What if we drop the assumption that mind is an emergent property of matter, which is what seperates origin of mind in a temporal sense from origin of universe?See also my previous post why I argue that there isn't any reason one could assume that the existence of a deity is a necessary or reasonable explenation.
