Disbelief versus the belief to the controversy
There is something that I've noticed about society in general; they make no distinction between disbelief and belief to the controversy. There is, of course, a difference between being skeptical of a story or claim, and believing this claim to be false. It seems that most people don't pick up this subtle difference. I believe this is where many of the misconceptions about atheism arise from. I.E. "There is no such such thing as an atheist, since you can't prove god doesn't doesn't exist" or "It requires more faith to be an atheist than a theist". Granted, both examples still make a few more faulty assumptions, but it seems to be at the root of things.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!
