I think if atheists were indulging a 'working theory', then they would be of the agnostic strain. Atheists (from my understanding of the term) have already settled a conclusion based upon evidence already considered.

they therefore exercise faith in the probability that future evidence will never come about, which would necessitate a change to their determination.

i can see how atheistic individuals perhaps have a capacity to eat humble pie and admit to being wrong, more so than god botherers... but ego can be a powerful thing and so what sort of evidence of god's existance would be strong enough, not to be denied?

it would be interesting to see i think.

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
