So, I'm sort of confused, and was wondering if I may get some help here? Can anyone explain the above quote to me? From the same thread we read,An atheist, by definition is someone who lacks belief in a god or gods. Full stop.
Is the above quote suggesting, Atheists simply lack belief in god, but do not insist there would be no god?Lack of belief is quite clearly not a belief.
I am honestly asking these questions in order to get a better understanding, because I do not believe all Atheists would identify with the above. In other words, I believe there are folks who are firmly convinced there are no gods. If the folks who are firmly convinced there are no gods are not Atheists, then what would they be referred to as? If these folks who are firmly convinced there are no gods are to be considered Atheists, then we do not have a "full stop" as stated above.
For further consideration, and discussion, I would like to post a quote from the web, along with supplying the full article this quote derived from.
