1. Atheism believes that all physical changes are explained by science.
2. I believe there is no god.
3. Despite the fact that there is no scientific understanding of how matter changes from all inorganic to a living cell, it cannot possibly indicate there might be a god, because of #2.
From your statement: It represents a false dichotomy between true and false, and ignores the third option; that there is insufficient information available to prove the proposition true or false.

I'm an atheist. Let me be super clear on what I mean when I say that.
What I mean is that I don't have a belief in any deity. It does not mean I am making a positive claim that no deity exists.
I simply have no reason to believe in any of the deities humanity currently has on offer, or any theoretical situation that may accommodate a deity that has as of yet been presented to me.
1991 I left the lutheran church, cause I couldn´t agree with her no longer.
I don´t believe in god, but it don´t matter me if he should exist.
I accept religious believes until they hurt human rights. It sadden me that christian churches often hurt the human rights.

Atheist I guess. Was a Christian, didn't work out, and I just don't see religion ever being a primary aspect of my life again. I'll leave religion to the theists and theologists.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
I've been an atheist my whole life. I'll leave it at that.
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
I'm a closet Otherkin. I'm one of those who believe they have something other than a human soul. Such as my name I chose implies. So this means my spirituality will be a bit odd even for those who are not traditional or who consider themselves neo-pagan.
