Reason is Evidence

“Atheism isn’t a metaphysical proposition. Atheism makes no assertions. The average atheist is going to recognize the primacy of existence. The average atheist is going to tend toward methodological naturalism. That’s about as far as you can go with making generalizations” Yes, atheism is not a metaphysical proposition; just like theism isn’t a metaphysical proposition.

(guesses and wishes and hopes,) ( beliefs, faith, and hopes) which are all
simply emotional states of mind. and pretty irrational states of mind at
best.
