Is atheism other set beliefs,or it reverts to pure logical,scientific based thinking?
I started to believe in black magic, lizards, and other "stuff". Does atheism will cure me from this kind of stupidity?
Is atheism actual a way to liberate oneself from "beliefs stupidity", or does it implies more beliefs which have to be believed?

None of the above. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in gods.

I suggest you investigate skepticism, humanism, materialism, and the like.

What is belief in lizards? Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Atheism is just plain common sense.

These lizard people you speak of, tell me more Consider

Atheist / skeptic / materialist, is starting to bore me.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

LOL.

I don't get it dude. You say 'liberate me from this stupidity' - why do you think it's true, if at the same time you think it's stupid to believe so ?

Just read up on skepticism. Start with wikipedia.

Thanks, that's probably it.

No beating around the bush, here: No fortune telling, no elves, no magic words.

Atheism = No Supernatural

Just YOU; your mind, your ability, your reasoning, your logical understanding, your thoughts and your ideas. There is so much more of you to do combat with something that does not even exist, that you will want to learn to live life more fully.
Figure out what you are about and you'll be on to something really great. Life might be sometimes boring but, even that is still a great adventure. Shy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

I vote this #1 OP since I have joined TTA. Atheist is not a belief system bud. No beliefs that must be believed here. "Beliefs stupidity" is a very common and dangerous illness. It is sometimes life threatening. The only cute is education my friend. Good luck
