God is dead, have a good Friday.

Jesus is described as part of the holy trinity, both god's "son" and the physical manifestation of god on earth.

Good Friday represents the day that Jesus was crucified. Literally, god died that day to be resurrected on easter Sunday. On good Friday Christians celebrate/observe god/Jesus' death.

So..."deeerrrrp how cans it die if not exist? Stupid atheists". You guys are totally missing the point.

Close, that's skepticism based on faith. Faith is still a component.

"Requiring evidence that something exists before believing in it is a form of faith?"

Strongly disbelieving something without proof most certainly is.
I am sure this will turn into another long song and dance and twisting of words but atheists have no more proof for what they disbelieve than what most believers do for what they do believe.
Besides, you can't prove a negative.

What god(s) should people believe in and why? Is your lack of belief in Apollo a matter of faith? Can you prove that Apollo does not exist? If you cannot, is that a compelling reason to believe that such a being exists?
