The absence of a sandwich

I'd written earlier about how atheism is not an act of faith, but an absence of faith. Well, those critics who would contend that even that absence is a sort of faith should check out this post by PZ Myers, in which he writes:
[T]he absence of faith is not faith, any more than the absence of a sandwich is also a kind of tasty snack between two slices of bread.
Heh. Let me clarify, at this point, that I do believe in sandwiches. But when there ain't a sandwich around, there ain't a sandwich around. So there.
