    To be honest, some postings more closely resemble randomly assembled words than designed sentences.

    I wouldn't unless there was a natural explanation that was supported by evidence. You have yet to support your design argument with anything like that.

    in general in the parable of the star do they mean what do they mean? simply the church
    Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks; The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven candlesticks are the seven churches.
    so he wrote it to the churches
    and the scrolls are sealed

    I think they probably meant that in order for them to believe, they would need to have evidence of God. Your question does not eliminate other possible sources or some unknown source other than God, but pretending to be God. I don't really worry what an atheist believes, but I find it interesting to see posts like this. Hypotheticals like this have no right or wrong answer. Much like who would be eliminated from your life boat if you had one or two, too many people and you were responsible for choosing who was thrown overboard.

    I was just curious and had a few questions.

    I do.
    I depart from the premise that the atheists are the strongest religion/ non-religion in the world...and also I see youths in the churches departing from faith here in Germany.
    That's how I want to understand how they believe (or would believe in case....)

    Why do you care what anyone believes? It has no impact on your believing. If the world all turned against Christianity and God, I would still be Christian. My beliefs are between me and God and not me and the rest of humanity.

    Trying to understand what and how others believe is interesting, but sometimes what I see from people making this claim is just attacking what others believe without any of the understanding part on display. It seems more like a fear reaction. Which is strange from those claiming to be a part with the Lord.

    If I understand @thomas t correctly his concern is less with people leaving the faith and more with people leaving the church. Which has different reasons and most of those have nothing to do with the attraction of atheism and more with the lack of attraction of the church.
