I am not a non-believer (since I believe in Yahweh, the Judeo-Christian god). However, despite my belief in Yahweh, I am not an adherent of either the religion of Christianity or the religion of Judaism. At first, there may appear to be a contradiction in the two facts of, on the one hand, my belief in Yahweh and, on the other hand, my non-adherence to either of the couple of religions whose god is Yahweh (i.e., Christianity and Judaism); however, when one looks at this apparent contradiction better, they will see that this development is, in fact, not a contradiction at all.
I will like my faith in Yahweh to be constructively, usefully, healthily challenged by atheists.
I believe that I can constructively, usefully, healthily challenge the point of view that Yahweh does not exist - this could be useful to the whole range of "free thinkers," from atheists to agnostics.
I am neither an atheist nor an agnostic, but I do like to befriend atheists because I believe that, by hanging out and interacting with atheists, my own faith in Yahweh will be constructively, usefully, healthily challenged - I am a "free thinker."
