We do understand what belief is.But belief alone doesn't qualify religion as the ultimate truth.
Belief and religion are two different things.

One can believe in a deity, without being part of a religious structure.

Atheists can't be evangelical

To evangelise: to convert, to convince, to attract someone to a position, to preach, to sermon, etc... That's the broader definition.

Some atheists definitely try to convince believers to join them; in fact, they "evangelise".

There is no proof either way, but atheists want believers to prove there is a god, but exempt themselves from the same burden.
They want it both ways.
They also cannot understand that for deists, belief is based on faith; a concept they cannot grasp.
Those who say "there is no God" also have blind faith in their statement.

Those who believe that there is God, at least can point out some thing that their God created.

But those who say "there is no God" cannot point out any thing their Non Existent God created, so they are the one who are not only without any proof, but without any ground on which to stand on!!

That is why I said these so called Pure Atheists are the most illogical and unreasonable people on the face of this earth.

What a childish argument?Pointing out things isn't enough.One has to convince his affirmation of God's existence with plausible arguments that are based on solid premises.A deist may be able to do that.You are not a deist.You are a theist.Your knowledge and reason is completely based on a green book that cannot be entertained as a reliable source in any sane philosophical debate.So you cannot reason.
This is why I've asked you in one of my posts to prove that your "Allah" is the real God(an assumption).

If you believe in a deity, without conforming to any known religion than you've started your own religion, with yourself as pastor and congregate.

There is no god, BECAUSE you religious liars have no evidence and you have no sense of honesty either. Its because of your actions all these thousands of years and nobody trusts your judgement or thoughts any more.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in religion and religious liars. It says nothing about murder and you know it.

Stalin didn't kill people because they believed in god. He killed them for polical power.

Also, your numbers are completely full of sh*t:

Lenin murdered 6m people

Stalin n=murdered around 1m people.

6m + 1m = 7m not 150m!

Tell us buck, how exactly does Lenin + Stalin = 150m? You must have prayed yourself retarded again.

Also, Lenin & Stalin's reason for war had nothing to do with Atheism at all.

Why do you try to lie so badly about Atheism buck????

Stalin + Lenin = 60 millions of Soviet citizen killed.

Mao + Cultural Revolution = 60 millions of Chinese

Pol Pot = 5 millions

+ Castro,+ Ethiopia,+,+,+ do I need to go on?

Atheism's legacy is one of massive slaughter.
I don't think any religion can compete with it!!
