I argue that atheism is a religion of having faith in no God nor gods. The atheists have no evidence God/gods do not exist. What they have are what they consider rational and logical arguments, but they are easily dismissed. The closest thing they have are in higher learning with the science of atheism -- evolution.In the end faith is a personal thing. It's easy to believe in a good, merciful God when things turn out good for you. It's a lot harder when life takes a shit on you or you watch someone good die a cruel slow death. If someone wants atheist indoctrination it's there to be found but so is religion. If the world was not inherently unfair and cruel it would not be so hard to convince some people that God loves them.Probably evolution being taught in universities and higher education helped destroy that belief. People who are atheists are usually better educated per the Pew Report.Many atheists started out as believers and then something destroyed that belief. It's why so many have a chip on their shoulder. God failed them.

Christians believe the world is "unfair and cruel" because of Adam's sin. For example, one has to physically die in this life and there are Adam's covenant and Eve's covenant.
