Y'know I was thinking, it takes a real lot of faith to be an atheist. When looking all around at the complexity of life and all created things whether animate or not, it must be very difficult not to come to the obvious conclusion that there is in fact a Creator, a Grand Designer, and to go against the grain so to speak, to imagine that actually, all of it happened by mere improbable chance, and not just mere improbable but where the improbability is ridiculously as improbable as to make it pretty much a certainty that such a thing is impossible, then to carry on believing so in the face of abundant evidence to the contrary is nothing short of amazing faith, based on so little as to render it greater by far than the faith needed to believe in a Creator God, or in Jesus Christ for which evidence abounds. So well done all you atheists for having so much faith in so very very little.
I wondered first of all, which logical fallacies could be found in this paragraph. I think I only recognise one of them, namely the 'argument from personal incredulity' although several times over.
We are faced yet again with the suggestion that there is abundant evidence for the existence of god, and as usual no actual details about what form this evidence takes. This is one of the most common claims for god which many atheists find frustrating.
From our perspective there is abundant evidence for the lack of existence of a god, but it is just had to find the final clinching argument to prove it.
Returning to Hilary's comments, we can easily dismiss the idea that atheism is a belief at all. Atheism is in fact a very specific 'lack of belief' in a very specific type of god. Atheists have all sorts of personal beliefs, but the one that we must share in order to wear the name 'atheist' is that we do not believe in a god who intervenes in the universe to change physical laws in order to answer prayers.
For this viewpoint there really is abundant evidence, as whenever studies of the effectiveness of prayer have been conducted it seems that God goes on strike - or worse than that it can actually be bad for people to know that they are being prayed for. (See this link - not part of the evidence in itself, but at least it is a friendly description of that evidence. Alternatively here is a Wikipedia article.)
Aside from that, the very suggestion that all the 'evidence' of design and beauty leads to any one specific god is utterly illogical. It is only a matter of upbringing which leads most people to the god that they worship.
As we often say, all religious people are atheists too, but it is just that those of us who admit to being atheists take it one god further.
