I honestly can’t stand it when Christian apologists say “it takes more faith to be an atheist than it does to be a Christian”.

You’re just affirming and perpetuating this common misconception of faith as “the capacity to believe without evidence”. That has never been what faith is.

If nothing else, the Bible says faith is a good thing. So if atheism requires more faith than you can muster, then you should aspire to grow in faith until you can be an atheist.

No. This conception of faith won’t do.
