|let's argue about god guys

As many of you know, I lack a belief in god. My reasoning is that there is no undeniable proof supporting god's existence. If I was to ask how one could obtain a belief in god, one of the typical responses of a theist would be "faith" (as I have received this response many times). But what is faith? Well, the most accepted definition of faith is to believe in something when there is no proof. Therefore, in order to believe in a god when proof is lacking, one must...believe in a god when proof is lacking. So the faith answer amounts to: "in order to believe in god, you have to believe in god." In other words, "faith" is just a postively-connotated way of saying "superstition."|
Without killing each other, discuss.
