First, that's not totally true.

IF evidence surfaced of a god (which probably won't happen and probably wouldn't be your 'god', since there are so many), I think I can speak for any atheist in saying we'd be delighted at this amazing development and it would then be demonstrated for us precisely what he's done/doing.
Former poster here C Gerstle:
"To call Atheism a religion is to call bald a hair color.
To be honest, "atheist" is a word that shouldn't even exist. No one has to acknowledge themselves as a "non-alchemist" or "non-astrologist."
The word "atheist" only exists because dogmatists outnumber the skeptics in this case."
IOW, Does you Not believing in Astrology make you an active 'believer'/religionist in something else?
It's only because, as Gerstle says, that people who happen TO believe are in great Majority, that Non-believers even get Painted with the/A word 'Atheist', much less constitute a 'religion'.
