Stephen Hawking is a physicist who is considered the best since Einstein and Newton. He is also an atheist prompting many mindless atheist nuts to use arguments from authority. It's obvious why a man like Stephen Hawking is an atheist. It's not intellect that encourages him. It's emotion stemmed from the condition he suffers. You can see that this is the case when an otherwise intelligent man uses a evidenceless hypothesis (multiverse which is science fiction) to advocate atheism. Unfortunately many atheists now use arguments from authority by asserting that because Hawking is an atheist, it must be correct.
Stephen Hawking, an otherwise great scientist whose emotion caused him to put his faith in an evidenceless hypothesis to explain the origin of the universe.

Despite the other definition saying that r/atheism is not a place filled with bigoted assholes, it is. Simply a visit to its front page reveals this and calling all the members of one faith "brain washed" is not only being retarded but it is also generalizing on a foolish preconceived notion based on personal experience.

The idiots over at r/atheism are incapable of having an intellectual discussion. They simply post insulting memes about God and Christians (they mostly don't touch on other faiths as they have an irrational hatred against Christians) but ask them why they're atheist and they can never give a good reason. Some of their reasons are below:

"I'm gay and God hates gays and therefore he doesn't exist!"

"My sister died! God didn't prevent that and therefore this universe came from nothing!"

They will not consider any other world-view such as agnosticism or deism. Anything disagreeing with them is "Christian" or "unscientific" even though they're the unscientific ones for relying on anecdotal claims.

Recently, r/atheism came up with a series of images where its members would take pictures of themselves explaining why they're atheist. For a good laugh, Google "faces of atheism" and go onto images. You'll find half-naked men and old balding men sticking their middle fingers up saying that they don't believe in God because they are intellectual. As if! These monkeys clearly don't know their left hand from their right!
r/atheism is the home of assholes and professional quote makers such as A.A Lewis.

The study of God as well as arguments for his existence. Has its roots in Ancient Greece where its philosophers and great minds came up with many arguments for God's existence that still exist today due to their solid foundation in logic (something atheism lacks). See metaphysics by Aristotle as an example. Arguments such as the "prime mover" were later expanded on by Christian theologians such as Thomas Aquinas.
Theology is the rational study of concepts relating to God.

Ana Marie Cox is a blogger who works for The Guardian in the US. She has a jizzface expressing that she likes cum in her face and she is an anal sex advocate apparently receiving it very hard. Most of her poorly written unfounded articles are just about readable. She is otherwise another nobody whose claim to fame is publishing an article on the Washingtonienne scandal.
Ana Marie Cox is a divorced pro-pedophile alcoholic with a rather plain looking face.

R/cringe is a subreddit where users post pictures that are cringe worthy. Most of these consist of pictures from r/atheism and their popular unintentionally hilarious "faces of atheism" campaign where atheists take pictures of their (very often) ugly faces with a caption about why they're atheist (often hilarious as they are rather pretentious about themselves). Unfortunately, like with all of Reddit and most of the interwebs nowadays, Reddit is also overrun with hypocritical politically correct mindless zombies where woman-shaming is tolerated but anything mocking a homosexual is suddenly "homophobia" even when much of the behavior of a flamboyant homosexual is cringe-worthy to any straight person. Unfortunately the world is now overrun with these sods who are filled with propaganda or who are either closet gays themselves.
R/cringe is popular with people who are cringe-worthy in real life. After all not many decent people actually really use Reddit for such long periods of time.

Logical fallacy refers to fallacious reasoning, or in other more simpler terms, a fallacy in an logical argument. There are many logical fallacies and some examples are below:
Ad hominem ~ argument to the man. You attack a person verbally as opposed to their argument (i.e a person attack).
Straw man argument ~ setting an argument up and knocking it down, called a straw man because it's based on a misconception of the argument proposed to you (normally done purposely).
Argument from authority ~ when you call upon a higher body (i.e a government, a community, someone with credentials) to support your claim (i.e "Stephen Hawking is an atheist and that therefore makes atheism correct because Hawking is an intelligent man!"). Has no place in science as the personal views of an individual are meaningless.
Argument from numbers ~ refers to using the number of supporters for something to support the claim (i.e "Billions of people smoke! It's acceptable!").
No true Scotsman fallacy ~ logical fallacy used when someone holds that someone isn't a member of (insert group here) because it doesn't adhere to their personal view (i.e "Stalin and Mao weren't atheists because they were elitists and in my world-view, atheists can't be elitists!").
Moving the goalposts ~ logical fallacy used when someone attempts to shift their argument to something else when their original one is knocked down or when evidence is presented and it's dismissed with new evidence demanded (i.e "I don't care that you just provided me with a list of scientists who claim to believe in God as I originally asked you, prove to me that they aren't lying!").

Faith can be practiced by anyone including atheists. Faith occurs when someone puts their faith into something without any evidence.
Atheists have blind faith in naturalism, abiogenesis and the multiverse as well as several other hypothesizes which are evidenceless.
