You know, I've met folks who make that claim too. Once I asked one to clarify what he meant, he went on this long rambling tail of gibberish and I was like.... but.... did you ever like say god does not exist or you don't think one exists?? he replied ... no. (Then you were never an Atheist!)

> This reminds me of a letter I once received from a Catholic nun who accused me of being an atheist because I was angry with God. I wrote back, telling her that, if I was angry with God, I wouldn't, by definition, be an atheist. Predictably, she refused to engage in any follow-up dialogue and later sent me a card saying that she was praying for me. Facepalm

Hmm. That's a fundamental problem with being able to appreciate a viewpoint different to your own.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
