If Atheism is the lack of a belief in God or gods, why are atheists in the Religion & Spirituality section?

    I am here to answer questions directed at atheists. And, hopefully along the way, point out to some what the word atheist really means. There are quite a few here who don't seem to understand. The most common misconception is that we are "mad at god". You cannot be mad at something that doesn't exist.

    Perhaps they like these words of Paul:  Faith Hope and Love.

    Maybe some of them are hoping for faith and please be kind to the Atheists because some of them are mad at God.  I know of one on here who was born with health problems and they are angry.  It is against the rules to target others so not saying the name. Most are really Agnostic and means they just doubt.  Some have had experiences that make them believe.  There have been cases of some being rescued by Angels and have known some who have seen Angels so as for me and my family we believe. Angels are real and they save lives for those who are special and care about planet earth and all life on it.

    There you are! See what you just posted?! Hal you can lie all that you want, but just saying, isn't lying against  orders from your fictional Jesus. LOL!   Many have articles of faith -- beliefs without proof.  For example, some believe that "all babies are born atheist".  Proof that you lie. " Articles of faith are a part of a religion." Yes, and you ought to know that as you are a religion believer.  But you are wrong and know that you are wrong is the reason that you lie, because you know that atheism has no articles nor instructions, nor any manipulating books ie your bible. You believers are suffering because you want atheists to be like you; LOL!  that will never happen. Atheists do not accept fantasy as reality, that is what believers must accept or they would not have even a belief.

    The atheists in the Religion section feel it is their duty or pleasure to persuade others not to be religious.  That's why.

    Most atheists actually mind their own business, though they will discuss their ideas with you if you want to.

    Atheism is a legitimate view about claimed deities and about religions.

    Duh.
