@chimeroid: @pooty: From an atheist; Atheism is not a religion, if it were, not collecting stamps would be a hobby. I don't advocate on insulting religious people unless they are acting in a manner that deems it. I don't find that just because you are religious makes you somehow less intelligent. I am not on set of disproving god, I am set on finding credible objective evidence for god. I think it would be cool for some sort of afterlife where you are at peace, I get why people have this need to believe. But what I want to be true is not the same as what is true! Atheism is simply the lack of belief in a higher power. I don't know if there is a god or not, I have not acquired the knowledge to make a claim if one exists or not.
And again, the philosophy you describe here is actually Agnosticism or Agnostic atheism if you will. I know, tha Atheism is not a religion, but indeed a lot of people are acting as if it were. Just check 9gag comment section.. Or any of the massive number of forums online that have that.
When it comes to unicorns, are you 100% sure they don't exist? When it comes to unicorns would you be a believer, agnostic or atheist? I would be an atheist even though i can't 100% disprove that unicorns don't exist.
atheist have the position that there is no god. Just like theist have the position that there is a god. Yet neither side says they are 100% sure they know. You can have a position without being 100% sure.
There are a Billion atheist. Yet you say " alot of people are acting like atheism is a religion". IMO, "alot" would have to be atleast 30-40%. How many is ALOT in your opinion?
