Atheism is the concept that there are no DEITIES.
It says nothing about energy, dimensions, or the fact that there may be 'life after death'.
An Atheist is not jumping up and down screaming there is no God. Most I know just contend there is no solid evidence for such an "ENTITY".
So get your facts straight about what Atheism is before you argue the con.
We just oppose the THEORY of THEISM. We don't dress in all black and hail Satan or believe everyone should have wild sex and murder because there really is no point to it all. We don't feel Christians should be hung or flogged.
At least I don't.
We're not 'bad ' people, and I think I can speak for many of us when I say that we TOO have the best intentions.
But remember that it is the DEISTS (Jews, Christians, Muslims) that assert there is a GOD, and that certain political/societal problems can be answered by that notion.
We simply don't find the basis since NO PROOF, NONE, exists that such a being is there. So we as "Atheists" aren't arguing a point, it's the THEISTS that are.
And we don't like it in our schools, which are a de facto indoctrination apparatus of the STATE to begin with.
I mean, talk about mixed signals here.
