Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

Why do atheists hate god?
They don't. They simply don't believe in it.
Do you hate Santa?
Good grief, don't bring up Santa! He'll say you're a priest in the Santa religion!

Umm...let me see...atheists are atheists because they secretly want to believe in god?

By your twisted logic that must mean that religious folks are really atheists running away from god.

Again...you guys are kinda creepy.

Atheist is a Religion.
Religion
Synonyms: credo, creed, cult, FAITH, persuasion
faith\ˈfāth\
noun
b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof
Atheism
Belief that there is no Deity or Deities.
Hence - Atheism = Religion
Unicornism - the belief that there are no unicorns.

Hence - non believers of unicorns have formed a religion of...um...not believing in unicorns.

LOL...you're seriously messed up...

<quoted text>Well you not universally accepted.

A survey published in the 2005 Encyclopedia Britannica stated that 2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."

Wikipedia:

"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"

Wikipedia :

"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"

Wikipedia :

"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"
So stop blaming us for all the world woes.

There just aren't that many of us.

Hey sock puppet for Wimp Lo, When you put "A" in front of a word, it means "without or not", for instance, "atypical" means not typical, "asymmetrical" means not symmetrical, "asymtomatic" means without symptoms, now, would you like to guess what atheist means? DUUUUUHHHH. No wonder you and Wimp Lo get along so well, niether of you has an IQ above 30, which makes sense since you are his sock puppet.

Atheism is not a religion.

Two questions...

Why do you use something from a 2005 source?

If you claim that, based on your source "2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." How do you continue to claim that atheism is a religion? You can't have it both ways moron.

You are such an idiot!! ROTFLMAO!!!!!

What is it with religious people and their weird need to have everyone assigned to some religion - so much so that now they claim that people who don't even believe in god have formed their own religion?
Its creepy...
It's a need they have in order to argue that their religion is better etc....
They can't argue against what atheism really is (a lack of belief in a god(s). The only way to argue with that is to prove that there is a god, which they simply can't do.

Atheism is no more a religion than theism is. They are both just categories. Theists believe in the existence of one or more deities. Atheists are everybody else.
