    WRONG. Atheism is lack of belief. Atheists prefer knowledge. Humans do not yet posess the knowledge to either prove or disprove the existence of a creator for our universe, but we do know enough to negate the myths of creation that fill the treasured and sacred texts of earth's religions. Therefore, we do not believe in your god ar anyone else's.

    Believers want to insist that atheists are just like them, in that we have a belief system that tells us whether or not there's a god. That simply is not the case. Sorry, but I'm just not like you. I take nothing on faith.

    Can't prove a negative. The burden of proof is on the believer. My lack of belief is based on all of the advances in human knowledge that negate the creation stories in the sacred texts of earth's religions.

    Belief is a comfort because it gives us all the answers to unanswerable questions about out place in the world and in the universe. Most people prefer that. I understand I'm in the minority. I prefer the questions.
