i'm 99.9999999 percent sure there is no god. certainly no god as described through various religious texts.
however. I cannot say with absolute certainty that a god-like being does not exist. i cannot prove nor disprove this.
can i say im an athetist?

I would add that atheist is a religious term in that it defines a person solely in relation to god or religion. I don't mind being called atheist, but I choose to call myself a humanist or a rationalist and I leave religious terms to the religious. If religionists wish to call me atheist, that's fine with me.

One should only believe anything as far as the belief can be justified by reason and evidence.
