I am trying to understand yours and explain mine. Unfortunately not everything in my stance is proveable. Unlike you I do not need it to work for anyone but me. Unlike most human beings I do not need outside validation. If you want to understand what I believe I will try to explain. If you want me to justify then sorry I will not. I cannot. And that fact does nothing to weaken my comfort with my beliefs.
I simply asked you to provide me with some evidence for the claim that science recognizes the existence of "many [sic]" dimensions. Unlike a belief in some higher power, the formerly mentioned assertion can be proven empirically. In fact, if what you are saying is true, you should be able to demonstrate it with ease.

Care to elaborate on why having unsupported beliefs doesn't bother you?

I'd go with the commonly used definition of atheism: the absence/lack of a belief in gods. That's really all there is to. The reason for lacking a belief in gods may very well be different. For me, it's both because there is no evidence supporting the god(s) hypothesis and because there is no good reason to think that they exist in the first place.
