Weak atheism is essentially the same as agnosticism]. It states that since we have no proof of a God, we cannot know for sure that one exists. Strong atheism states that since we live in a scientific world where the existence of things is determined solely by their observability, we cannot assume anything unobservable to exist. God isn’t observable, therefore he doesn’t exist (cf. Occam’s Razor). This doesn't mean that an atheist wouldn't WANT to believe in God, it merely means that he has no REASON to believe in it/him.
Strong atheists often question the special treatment weak atheists – and theists – give to religion. If they believe that the tooth fairy or Santa Claus do not exist, why are they willing to give God a benefit of the doubt?
Strong atheism is often equated with religion since it takes a strong stance on the issue. This is, however, fallacious. Religion is not based on rationality, and strong atheists value rationality over fantasy. Therefore atheism is not parallel with religion.
Atheism does not mean you worship Satan.
Atheism means you believe in NO God of ANY type WHATSOEVER.
It is the doctrine or belief that there is no God
Atheist: "No, it means I don't believe in some Jewish zombie that I somehow have to telepathically worship. Atheism means I believe that life came from science."
Person 2: Bad things happen to everybody good and bad people. Even though it may seem like good people have worse luck bad people have just as bad. Which is why I believe in atheism
Person 3: I am Catholic so I believe the lord Jesus Christ is our savior and there is Heaven and Hell
Person 4: I don't believe in god but I accept your religion and will not make fun.
Person 3: Thank you and I accept your belief even though ignorant people of my religion may not accept your belief
Atheism is not an outright rejection of the possibility of deity, or an immature rebellion against god. Atheism is simply an unwillingness to accept any obviously ridiculous dogmas (like believing in a loving, intelligent god who sends people to hell for arbitrarily selecting the wrong set of beliefs) concerning the unknowable until presented with a reason to do so.
atheism is a bit less violent in most situations, dont you think?
"A principle urging one to select among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions and thereby offers the simplest explanation of the effect".
