"the TERM "atheism" originated in the sixteenth century – based on Ancient Greek ἄθεος "godless, denying the gods
atheistic ideas, as well as their political influence, have an expansive history. Over the centuries, atheists have arrived at their point of view through a variety of avenues, including scientific, philosophical and ideological notions
Philosophical atheist thought began to appear in Europe and Asia in the sixth or fifth century BCE. Will Durant explains that certain pygmy tribes found in Africa were observed to have no identifiable cults or rites. There were no totems, no deities, and no spirits. Their dead were buried without special ceremonies or accompanying items and received no further attention. They even appeared to lack all simple superstitions,
Atheist are just as dependant on faith as any God fearing individual.
They use " Science " as a justification but haven't through Science justified their beliefs.
That's because Science doesn't prove or disprove the existence of a creator.
If anything the Scientific study of the origins if our Universe point to the existence of a creator far more than it denies the existence of a creator.

Jonathan Kay: America’s firearms culture forged by paranoia, racism and civil rights unrest

(teach your children well)
...In one iconic photo, an overweight man with a massive gun slung over his shoulder stands in front of a rack of baby toys at Target, drinking from a bottle of water. According to Open Carry Texas founder CJ Grisham, such stunts will help show Americans that liberals’ collective fear of guns is “irrational.”
Well then colour me irrational. And colour all of Canada irrational, too — even the conservative parts.
There is a fine line between responsible gun-rights advocacy and America’s GOP-enabled Yosemite Sam gun-cult carnival — and I feel comfortable drawing that line around the diaper section of my local big-box store.
