Atheism is simply a lack of belief in God.

That's it.

Period.

Nope, nothing else.

Absolutely nothing else is required.

I think there's a few people here that would kill to be an executioner.

RE: Pacifism a requirement to being an Atheist?
Is pacifism a pre-requisite to not believing in unicorns? I hear that if you lack belief in supernatural creatures you MUST be a pacifist.

The argument makes no sense, sorry.

A-unicornists: All pacifists the lot of them.
A-cycloposts: Bunch of sissies.
A-leprechaunists: Can't even get them to make up their mind on anything.

The A in Atheist is there to mean the "non" or "not" - you are a not whateverist. If you are a theist you believe in a god. If you do not believe in a god you are an atheist. It takes literally that, not believing in it and nothing else to be an atheist.

Yeah, I don't understand where you are coming from here. Atheism isn't an ideology. There really aren't rules to being atheist.

Except the one....

I knew I was a pacifist before I knew the word atheist. Although I've been an atheist longer than I've been a pacifist.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Ok man... What we're gonna do is get out of this rat race and back to mother earth. We'll drink some herbal tea, meditate, and talk about aliens and why you shouldn't trust the government...

After that, you should be all passive and shit...

One word.
