For example, if religion had never been invented, and the human race 100% atheist, the term would never have been used. It's simply nothingness. I may be wrong, I just find it hard to think of it that way >.< Is unbelief in a soggy telekinetic teabag a concept?

I don't see a problem here. There are no specific terms for lack of belief in telekinetic teabags simply because it is not prevalent - or even existing - belief. Seeing as theism is quite popular it should not be a suprise that word/concept/term such as atheist exists.
And why you find atheism being man made concept hard to accept?
I explained why although thanks to everyone here I understand it now.
