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.

My point was just that we can admit we don't know something, whereas religious folk tend to just say "god did it."
A better example: we don't know how many universes there are, we can make educated guesses, but that's about it.
Very true and I apologize for my early morning groggy head.

God/s either exist or they don't right?

There are differing opinions on the conduct of Israel.

None of those opinions legitimise islam.

None.

FAIR is FAIR that is the way the world sees it.

I dunno. That makes it sound like the odds are sort of 50/50, lending WAY too much credence to the possibility of a god.

What?!? What drives people insane is finding gods under every rock and monsters under every bed. Such people have filled the World with gods and demons, ghosts and goblins. Atheist's buck the trend and it's a cold, thankless and often dangerous undertaking. One thing's for certain "I don't know" ain't any kind of an answer. People that "don't know" best do less talking and more listening.

Really educated people are passed the religious error. The billion uneducated peoples are fallen to propaganda of the rich and mighty ones. In the nuclear age this is most dangerous for their life and the total mankind. Extinction is very likely!

Actually "I don't know" is not difficult to say.
I don't know many things, just as many others don't know many things.
Atheists are not afraid to admit they don't know something. It's the creationists and highly religious like yourself who never say you don't know, only telling stories of mythology in order to explain things.
How are we here?
Atheists: "We don't know, but we can't look into religion, for there's no evidence of a god."
Religious people: "We know everything, we know how we were created and everything just because we believe in a god."
You don't know anything when you claim you know because of god.
The difference between atheism and religi. on is that one (atheism) doesn't claim to know everything, while the other (religion) has different myths to try and explain every single thing.
"Goddidit" is not an explanation, it is not knowledge. I could equally just say luck did it, to every single topic.
We are amid the era of extinguishing mankind. Religion is one hindrance to avoid the extinction by abolition of this absolute unnecessary utensil. However, capitalism does not take effective means.

In the atomic era there are humans already on the way of their extinction. Even the billionairs have no more the power to avoid this. It is too late.

Of course capitalists are no more able to avoid the end of mankind. Wars will not change anything on this fatal course! Intellegent people will realise this deadly effect without be able to change anything else!

It doesn't bother me whether he is religious or not. It's his mind to do with as he pleases.

When or if man becomes extinct religion will not be the cause.

The fact that people have an imagination and are able to come up with new things doesn't prove your god exists.
In the thousands of gods not even one has been real.

Ticked likes to pretend he's not religious, but then turns around and says he's not atheist. Can't be agnostic because he's choosing to attack people for their beliefs and you can't do that when you're unsure of your own.
Well, not the slightest idea of a god. But in the nuclear age we are on the verge of extinction anyway!

So where is this bigotry?
You're using words you don't understand again.
The ego?
I think your beat us there.
Who's the one saying that everyone is stupid but doesn't believe not disbelieve in a deity?
Whatever you say, there was never any god in the whole history of man!
