Noun. A person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being.

< Greek áthe(os) godless. adj. derivative of theós god) + -ist]

atheist, agnostic, infidel refer to persons lacking religious belief or a particular religious faith. An atheist denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings. An agnostic believes it is impossible to know whether there is a God without sufficient evidence. An infidel is an unbeliever, esp. one who does not accept Christianity or Islam; the word is usu. pejorative.

So lacking belief... simples!

my point still stands atheism a religion as a religion does not have to believe in a god. just collection of belief systems. such as believing all gods don't exist

So since Christians don't believe in most gods, just one, are they also atheists?

@MrOrange: Absence of belief is not belief.
*Fixed*
So the argument is:
religiuos person: i believe in X,
atheist: I don't believe in X.

@ak4: My point was mostly nitpicking. While the vast majority of atheists use science as an explanation, it is technically not required. The thing that gets me going is that no one needs to "believe" in science, the difference is, if you don’t believe it (and you’re properly motivated), then you can go out and test it. Science isn't about belief, it's about observation.

Since conceptions of atheism vary i will concede your point if you accept a learned atheist as a substitute.


Sure, why not?

how do we know you didn't stage it. So you could casually call atheist dishonest.

"The only requirement is not believing"

So the argument is:
religiuos person: i believe in X,
atheist: actually i believe x is untrue.

Wether or not you subscribe to any theory is irrelevant, you do not believe x is true hence you believe in something, the untrueness of x.
and unless you can prove that beyond a shadow of a doubt. it is plain and simple a belief.

i know a lot of you atheist are gonna hate me for this and tell me i'm wrong. Please do! i've been breaking my teeth on this one for years (and make it good please, it has to stand up to a fair amount of scrutiny)

How do we know he didn't take the money from other bowls to fill the Atheist bowl for the picture?
Also, how do we know this picture wasn't staged by atheists?

Test is skewed. depending on the area he is in there will be a greater number of 1 religion over another. In order to do a proper test he would have to go to each area where the religion strongest and then beg for money in each area.

"atheism is the belief in science, mathematics and their ability to explain the world around them."

Errr, no. Atheism is lack of belief in god(s). That's it. There is no inherent connection to science, mathematics, or anything like that. Some atheists may even have supernatural beliefs - as long as they don't believe in gods, they're still atheists. That kind of atheist may be rare, but there's no reason why it can't happen.

Adding 'belief in science' to the concept of atheism is an attempt to make atheists seem smarter and more rational, and though I personally believe that atheism is the most rational stance on question of whether god exists, there are stupid atheists and smart theists.

ugghh there was a really good post about this on Tumblr. Not everyone that's homeless look like a beggar and not all beggars are homeless, but beggars usually try to be as unkempt and looking as "in need" as possible, because the money is better.

This guy throws me off because he obviously has the means to regularly shave his head, he's got nice, modern clothing in good, clean condition, a nice little cooler bag there, probably with his lunch in it...See right above it? He has a charger plugged in...phone? I'm willing to bet this guy goes home to a nice little apartment at the end of the day...A clever, but amateur beggar taking advantage of people's pride. Funny

Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. Since conceptions of atheism vary i will concede your point if you accept a learned atheist as a substitute.

Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true.

But "belief" in science or mathematics is not a requirement for atheism. The only requirement is not believing. Atheism itself makes no assertions about how things came to be or how things work.

incorrect. Religion is an organized collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values.

atheism is the belief in science, mathematics and their ability to explain the world around them.


but ya he's not homeless with those shoes their in to good of condition.

It's a pretty ubiquitous statistic that religious people give more in charity than people who aren't.

This guy is just a good marketer, he's making people give money who otherwise wouldn't so they can basically jerk off to how tolerant and caring their religion, or lack thereof, is. "Well, my good deed is done now".
