. . . Another self proclaimed scientist who hates people and doesnt understand the basics of Atheism or logic .
Atheism does not require belief--and that's all been covered before.
As New Yorkers will say, don't piss down my leg and tell me it's raining.
The only definition i find....
Atheist" according to most modern dictionaries:
Most dictionaries define an "Atheist" as a person who either passively believes that no God exists, and/or who actively asserts this belief. For example:
bullet Webster's New World Dictionary®, Third College Edition defines an Atheist as "a person who believes that there is no God." 1 This definition implies that Atheists have investigated proofs and for the existence and non-existence of God, and have decided that no God exists or that the probability of one existing is phenomenally small. It seems to include a "closet" Atheist: one who believes that there is no God but does not assert this belief to others. This definition would seem to imply that a person who believes in the existence of a Goddess, but not a God, is also an Atheist. This definition will probably not satisfy many Goddess worshipers. Webster Dictionary, 1913 had a more inclusive definition that includes non-male deities: "One who disbelieves or denies the existence of a God, or supreme intelligent Being." 2 So did Webster's 1828 Dictionary: "One who disbelieves the existence of a God, or Supreme intelligent Being." 2
bullet Websters Collegiate® Dictionary defines an Atheist as "one who denies the existence of God." This is a particularly vague definition, because it does not define which God is being referred to. If Websters means the Christian God, then it would seem to imply that anyone who does not believe in the Trinity is an Atheist -- including Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Wiccans, Sikhs, and Atheists. The word "denies" would seem to imply that the individual actively promotes their belief.

bullet The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition: "One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods."
bullet The Cambridge International dictionary of English: "someone who believes that god or gods do not exist."
Surely you're not so foolish as to think i care what you do or don't say. I'm a native of New York, although i no longer live there. I say it. So much for anecdotal evidence.
How wonderful--we have yet another member whose only apparent interest is to argue for argument's sake.
Man you've got a bug up your ass. What's your problem. I said it in jest.
Are you becoming paranoid? I wasn't arguing with you
"A person who positively believes that no God(s) or Goddess(es) exists"...This is the definition of Atheism used by most Christians, other Theists, and dictionaries of the English language.
"A person who has no belief in a God or Goddess"...This is the definition of Atheism used by many Atheists.
...some Agnostics consider themselves to be Atheists... [But] as currently defined, most Agnostics hold the question of the existence of God open, pending the arrival of more evidence.
Man you've got a bug up your ass. What's your problem..... Are you becoming paranoid? ...
So, you don't know what the verb argue means? You contradicted what i had said. It is reasonable for me to characterize that as argument. I am neither paranoid, nor interested in arguing anecdotal claims.
But don't worry, I will not do that again.
Let me make it perfectly clear...I am an atheist, and I believe.
That's too bad, Arg. The way I see things, that's just a call for you to do it (be flippant) more with this jackass.
I might get a concussion banging my head against the wall.
