noun
1 : a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god
2 : a person who is unwilling to commit to an opinion about something <political agnostics>

Nope. Gnosticism refers to knowledge while Theism refers to belief. Atheism is a lack of belief in a god, not an assertion of non-existence.
Another well known atheist Stephen Hawking: "There is no God...There is no heaven"

I would say that this would definitely qualify as an assertion of non-existence.

I agree that some who are atheists assert the non-existence of gods. Do you have a point?

Science can not correct your statements. It strives.;p
There are a lot of theories, but suppose we figure it out, uh science figures it out, then you will still owe us the answers to the theological questions about the dinosaurs!
Science can not answer the given question. Period.

Just addressing your statement that atheism "is lack of belief in a god, not an assertion of non-existence."

That's not an answer, you just made more assertions and presented no evidence to support them. You are a liar then.
Irony!

That would be a gnostic atheist.

There are different types of atheist.

An agnostic atheist would be somebody who doesn't claim to know there is no god, but doesn't believe that there is one.

Well before you can read the tanakh you should work on being an atheist.
Freservant:
Ecclesiastes 1:9 "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."
Solomon, with the guidance of the Spirit of God, is telling you that those things that have happened before, will happen again. It is important that you understand this. There is no new idea or thing that can happen to man that has not already happened to man.
>>Remember that "under the sun" in in reference to "this flesh body of man".
FREESERVANT WROTE: Very good insight. The natural circuit is another term for cycles in all of creation.
FOR THE SEASONS, or seven circumambulations and a handy explanation to f.i. keep the flood at bay.(Someone should notify KAB.)
Just bringing it to the fore, so you will never forget that "UNDER THE SUN" references "THIS FLESH BODY OF MAN".
But oscillation does not feature much, a bit in moonphases.
There is really nothing new. Everything is just reproduced by cyclic patterned systems. Patterns are shown and followed.

The Gnostics, Aerobatty? Isn't that another of the christian sects that were wiped from the face of the Earth by this loving, peaceful, non-inherently-divisive religion?
