I don't find the concept clear.
I don't believe in god as generally conceptualized (particularly the ISSIS version).
As for a higher Universal force for developmental good: well I don't categorically disbelieve...... Definition is a key factor IMAO.Smartass

Unbelief seems passive, disbelief seems active.

Like with linguistics: Noam Chomsky wrote of terrorist dudes labelling themselves 'freedom fighters' and vice versa..............

Sounds about right. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

When I said I went through life as unbeliever I kind of meant I just ignored the whole thing. I had made up my mind that it was hogwash and was done with it. Somehow I ended up with friends who were all also nonbelievers, and it never even came up in conversation.

The only time I got irritated by religion was when I had a secretary who loudly exclaimed: "Thank you, Jesus!" every time something got finished or went well. One day she complained that her watch was broken. The next day I gave her a new one. She looked at it and screamed "thank you, Jesus". I said dryly: "You're welcome". She looked at me strangely and said she thought I would praise him with her. And what church I went to. I said that we were there to work and not to talk about religion. She stared at me and screamed: "You are not christian!" And stormed out never to be seen by me again. I almost decided then to become more active about my non-belief, but I still didn't identify as atheist. I just didn't believe shit, there was a lot of other stuff I didn't believe either. But it did piss me off, I went and bought her a watch as gift and she thanks Jesus. Good thing she walked out before I could fire her.

It started to crystallize more when hubby went on a rant about religion and hypocrites on his death bed. And then, once he died, all the hypocrites showed up and drove me bananas with their condolences and assorted hogwash. That's when something snapped in me. That's when I started to identify as atheist. I burned a lot of bridges then, and I came here to vent. And it still felt weird to search for "atheist" in google.

To get back on topic Tongue , it's more like being a heathen versus being an atheist.
