Your first link is to a philosophy page that discusses the many interpretations of atheism and how they apply to philosophical ideas. At no point in that whole article does it define atheism as a belief system.
doesn't have to specifically state that atheism is a belief system. regarding epistomology.

Sections 3 and 4 further investigate the epistemic role of perception and introduce two distinct conceptions of the architecture of our belief system: foundationalism and coherentism. It is shown how perceptual experience and perceptual beliefs are integrated into these systems. Finally, section 5 turns to the externalist view that thinkers need not be aware of what justifies their perceptual beliefs.

Your second link is to an atheist blog. This author accepts that rejection of god is enough to be called an atheist, as all reason indicates. But his opinion is that atheism probably should be part of a wider worldview rooted in naturalism. Personally, I agree. As I have said over and over I came to be atheist with regard to deities BECAUSE OF my naturalistic worldview. I'm a skeptic.
I think you are being intentionally misleading in your posts. You seem to have no way to make your argument otherwise.
And frankly, like other posts I've seen on Topix lately, it is quite a dumb argument.
what you think is the whole point of this argument. thinking is of the mind. it isn't of any thing else.

can you show me an accurate image of the mind? can you describe it's fundamental properties?

They Kidnapped Black People from Africa and Forced Them To Become Slaves , Forced them to change their names to European names , Christians raped black people , and Christians also forced Black People To Convert To Christianity.
Christians also murdered millions in World War's 1 and 2.
Christians Napalmed Vietnam , murdering 750,000 Innocent People when the Vietnamese did Nothing To Them.
Christians Slaughtered over 1,455,590 Innocent Iraqi's on a pack of lies.
Christians Slaughtered so many in Afghanistan that you really can not come up with an accurate number.
Christians Payed For Israel To Murder 1,450 Innocent , Unarmed , Palestinians in 2009 alone!

Why aren't you wonderful God fearing Christians adopting the thousands of children that are already needing adopted? I expect no honest reply, as Christians do not have the moral decency to tell the truth.
<quoted text>
We are!
How many have you adopted???
A better question would be...
What are you doing about un-wed prgnancies???
Instead of killing the result of permiscous behavior...
Teach your kids to wait for their spouses on their wedding night!
Oh no... you cannot do that!
Kids will be kids...

still dont explain why a person of great morals still goes to hell if they just dont believe cuz they lack the faith and they need more than believe cuz the bible says so. but your answer looks like a clever move by man so that the religion can still be used on ppl that have made a mistake cuz if the religion didnt include them then everyone that has committed a major sin would just quit goin to church and in turn cause chaos for the structure the church wants the ppl to live by. in no way u try to justify it is it ok for a pedophile to get forgiveness and be saved when a person that lives like mother teresa their whole life goes to hell just cuz their brain was to active to believe in blind faith.
if u want me to believe i can tell u how. the bible tells that ppl seen the resurrected christ and it also says if 3 or more ppl pray for something god will see it thru. so i challenge your church to pray that god lets me see the resurrected christ so that i have the proof needed for me to be saved. i mean if its ok for the ppl that wrote the bible to see him after he was resurrected then by all means the ppl on earth today should be given that same kind of proof, dont u think? let me know when your church prays for it so that i can be ready to for church the following week. now we shall see if your god can live up to the claims made in his bible. and if the resurrected jesus is to much to ask for just ask that he show me a burning bush or anything of that matter that he allowed the jews to see throughout history since he forgets to do those kind of things any more.
"i challenge your church to pray that god lets me see the resurrected christ so that i have the proof needed for me to be saved"
Really???

3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten
Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him may be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him, is not condemned: but he that
believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither
cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Do you see anything in here that says...
Another person can pray you towards salvation???

Do you see where it says... You donnot realy WANT salvation??
I do, or you'd be on your knees repenting, and ASKING God to clean you of YOUR sins...
When that happens... You WILL have your proof!
.
I'd love for you to really want salvation, as you'd
be back on here, telling ALL the others...

Did you know that...
In Judaism , if you want to join a synagogue ( Something Similiar to a Church )
You must sign a written contract to pay money!
If you want a front seat at the synagogue , you must pay a lot of money!
The people who can't afford the higher prices must sit in the back of the synagogue!
But let me make this clear... YOU MUST PAY MONEY OR YOU CAN"T JOIN!
Did you know that some people have been sued by the Synagogue for 100,000's of thousands of dollars because they did not pay?
Yep! Its True!
SO STOP SUPPORTING THE TERRORIST STATE OF ISRAEL AND GIVING IT 8 BILLION U.S. TAX DOLLARS EVERY SINGLE YEAR

If there's JW's showing up at your door wanting to socialize, and you don't wish to partake, it's real simple. All anyone has to say is no thank you, I'm Catholic (Baptist, Jewish, atheist, whatever) but thank you for the reading material, let you know if I'm interested, have a nice day.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist.
I don't care about the adults in the cult, they knew what was going on when they decide to join. My problem with them are about the children who never got a choice. When you tell a child they will never get to grow old because God is going to kill 99% of the population, and you don't allow your child to attend school because an education isn't needed in God's new world and you let your children hang around pedophiles because your leaders didn't think you needed to know about them then it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the harm it causes children.

You guys can drink Jesus blood and eat Jesus steak all day, just don't hurt the kids while you do it.

Oh and I forgot, the JWs take the "do not eat blood" scripture to heart and refuse blood transfusions. If a child is hurt and blood is needed to save their life then the child dies because the parents will not allow that to happen. They pray, they always do and the child dies and they just say that was God's will and go on. I consider that murder but then again, I'm no rocket scientist.
