Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Being agnostic means one thinks that it's impossible to know whether there is a God or not. It has nothing to do with actual belief. One can be an agnostic theist or an agnostic atheist. People can get very attached to their ‘personal’ meanings for these words, so if someone claims you're wrong for using the actual dictionary definitions, it's probably best just to avoid the argument ...
Well said, I'm an agnostic atheist, but I put on an act of believing without a doubt that there is no god for those who are bigots.
Because, you know, if there ever was a god, it probably wouldn't be as big of an a**hole.

I have asked many times on this and other thread to define what is Athiesm and who is an Atheist?
I got no definition of atheism or defining criterion of an Atheist.
Most of them said that "Only" thing on which all atheist agree is that "There is no God and there is no religion"?
How can you make "negatives" as your definition?
Please tell me what is the definition of an Atheist and who is an Athiest. But please, it should be a "positive" definition and not a negative definition.

Atheism is what it is Muq. I'm sorry of the reality of it upsets you but an Atheist is just a person who does not believe in any god. We reject the theist claim as they are unable to show observable proof for the theist claim.

For civilized people who bathe properly and do not sell their children, it's really not that difficult to understand.

But you being a janitor at an airport I suppose it is difficult for you.

I am none of those, I also have no fears of the non-existent, and I will not turn my eyes from the truth. So it pisses you off, big deal ... that's your problem, not mine.

Really?
Religion requires faith.
Faith is belief without evidence.
Religion is a belief in the supernatural, i.e. MAGIC.
Religion requires veneration of an object or a deity.
Religion requires ritual.
These are the components required for something to be classed as a religion for legal purposes.
They can not be applied to atheism, atheism is not a religion for the purposes of law or even philosophy. There is no unified doctrine of unbelief.
...and jesus according to your bible was totally A JEW, and if he existed was probably Zadokite.
That's what you think faith is?

Hmmmmm.....?

What is it that allows you to fly in an airplane without fear of crashing?

What is it that allows you ride in an elevator without fear of it falling?

What is it that allows you to drive or ride in a car on a road without fear of crashing into oncoming vehicles?

What is it that allows you to plant a peach tree with the expectation of enjoying its fruit in the future.

What is it that allows you to keep putting your money in a savings account with the expectation it will be there when you need it?

Atheists have "no unified doctrine of unbelief"?

Sure they do, bubba. Atheists are absolutely unified in their belief there is no God and they have absolute faith in that belief despite all evidence to the contrary....

And, Jesus was an Essene, not a "Jew". Google the etymology of the word "Jew". There were no "Jews" in the 1st century AD. The word didn't even exist until it was invented in the 12th century AD and didn't exist in copies of any Bible texts or any other ancient texts until after that date.

Just curious, why did you abandon religion?
What changed your mind?
That's a hard thing to give up for sure
The reason I ask is I was never brought up into any belief system
Until 9/11 I paid literally no attention to it whatever
So I do little investigating into the origins of Islam and eeee gads!
Ju got sum splannin ta do - Lucy!
Even worse than Christianity
I read the bible. All of it, and I started seeing the contradictions and lies, and I asked the question why, and I was put through some real abuse for daring to question(including about 48 hour or so demon removal farce). I was told that the answers were in the bible, and again I read it, and found even more problems with the so called word of god.

It took around twenty years of study and prayer to finally realize that there was nothing but bluster coming from my church community and even less than that from the bible. I was a non-believer long before I even realized it. I didn't know there was even one other person on this earth, who didn't believe ... but I knew without doubt I didn't, I couldn't. My first contact with another non-believer was here on topix.

Of course it doesn't. The DNA model is only 60 years old.

Oh, so we're supposed to prove a negative? Tell you what, why don't YOU prove that you're not a wife-beating meth addict with a mile-long arrest record.
There, see how that works?
