For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
The one thing all atheists can agree on is that they do not hold a belief in anything they would call god. However, "I do not believe X" is not the same thing as "I believe NOT X". By example, "I do not believe a god(s) exists" is not the same as "I believe no god(s) exists". So I want to poll this distinction.
We should all know this, but keep in mind that "I believe" is not the same thing as "I know". For example, "I'm pretty sure that fairies don't exist, but I can't be certain of it" means "Yes, I believe fairies don't exist".
Last thing, you can use any definition of "god" that you think is relevant. Basically, just don't define "god" as "toaster".
If the question isn't clear, simply don't answer the poll. I'm looking for strict answers.

Yes, I believe no gods exist. I would, of course, change my mind if I was proven wrong, but like that's gonna happen. Drinking Beverage

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Non-belief is not in and of itself a belief. I do not believe in a god or gods, nor do I accept other's god claims without evidence.

I believe there is only one True God®.

I am hard core atheist. If I was god I wouldn't believe I existed.

On my present understanding there are no gods, no supernatural entities, no afterlife, no miracles, nuthin like that at all.


Don't stop me enjoying reading myths, legends and fantasy books though! Smile

RE: For Atheists: Do you believe no god(s) exist?
Nope not a positive atheist i merely have no belief in god as in a god could exist same as a million other unproven evidence things that could exist but there really is no reason to accept exists.And even if there was evidence not just fallices and baseless assertions the question becomes is said evidence strong enough to overcome my skepticism. And no more have to give a standard of when i will be convinced of god then i do when i will be convinced of fairies. And no that's not moving the goalpost .

But really my problem with this thread is were not defining god if god is a door knob then he existences if he's the Christian god then i highly doubt he exists .

This two statements are contradictory.
