If you wish to understand how a group uses a descriptive word in reference to themselves?<quoted text>
We know that certain groups of atheists are attempting to redefine "atheism".
It's best to simply *ask* them.
Instead of projecting bullsh7t onto them even against their protests.
Atheism is neither faith, nor a system of belief.
Neither is it a following, a movement or a philosophy.
All that it is, is a lack of faith in deities and other stupid b.s.
Anything else? Is something more, such as Secular Humanism (a movement, a philosophy and a morality system; some even call it a religion even though it rejects gods and other superstitious b.s.)
