I wonder... what is an Atheist and what do you believe? I am not interested in Webster's definition, already know that. Look forward to some constructive dialog.
Atheism is a lack
of belief in a god or gods.
We really should have no need of the word
as there is no word for lack of belief in Santa
Claus or the Tooth Fairy.
Contrary to what some of the loony theists say
there is no atheist agenda and we have no
beliefs in common that make us atheists.
It just so happens that atheists tend to be
more intelligent, better read and more liberal
so we end up agreeing on many issues such
as social reform, abortion, gay rights etc.
