It takes more faith to disbelieve than it does to believe
Actually no it doesn't!
The most common Atheists respond to evidence, not faith. Some just don't want to believe, but who are Theists to criticize Atheists with Strong Atheism? In that sense, they are both being hypocritical. So far there has been no evidence for the presence of a higher power, that's when some people feel like they have to have faith, but the irony is that most of them have the confidence to deny the existence of fairy tale creatures based on no evidence. When it comes to Atheism, some use the lack of evidence as their justification to say that "there is no god", but at the same time as using faith, they are using the fact that there's no evidence to support their claim.
Theists use more faith than Atheists.
