It’s not just me. With the exception of Buddhism, every religion/worldview has the, “higher power” as the source for the ultimate questions of life.
You and I must be reading different atheists. When the leaders of your movement refer to, “God”, they invariable mean a creator and explanation of the universe, whether the biblical god or not.
You need faith to have beliefs about the ultimate questions, whether respect to my assertions or no. On a deeper, and more, “real” level, everyone here has deeply held beliefs and has come to promote them. The, “non-faith” stance could theoretically work with someone who simply doesn’t care to think about life beyond the here and now, but that isn’t how human beings have ever been. We seek answers to everything. At least for me, to hold the view that an unthinkably enormous entity that is infinitely complex and has produced conscious, intelligent life in a world of good, beauty, love, order, purpose,evil, etc.is not evidence of something beyond the physical is a view that is counter to the evidence, thereby is held by faith.
