You changed your story.<quoted text>
LOL! You spent all that time vomiting up a cut-and-paste diatribe while missing the point of the question? Wow, reading and comprehension issues much?
OK, I'll give it to you again: "So I'm curious: to those who insist that atheism is a belief, please describe what that belief necessarily entails. I'm an atheist, so I'm interested to see what I therefore must believe as a consequence."
So, once again for the slow kids: if atheism is a belief, then what other beliefs follow as a consequence?
First, you asked for a description of what the atheist belief entails.
Now, you ask something different - what "other beliefs follow".
I'm going to assume you meant the original question you asked, and you are now just being your usual asshole self. So here is your answer again.
