RE: Pacifism a requirement to being an Atheist?
It's probably true that an atheist is statistically likely to be a pacifist, but that has more to do with the the ideological and political groups in which atheists tend to belong to, not Atheism itself, an is certainly not a rule.

Pacifism certainly isn't my cup of tea. I believe in cause and effect, not fear and wishful thinking disguised as something more noble than it really is.

Things that are required to be an atheist (lowercase "a", by the way; it's not a religion or anything like that):
Not believing in deities

Things that are not required to be an atheist:
Literally everything else

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
