Now hear me out before arguing the point. religion is ones answers to the 5 beginner philosophical questions... where did we come from, why are we hear, where do we go when we die, how did the world start, and does the world actually exist. to say you are an atheist means that u believe in nothing. but thats impossible. if u believe in the big bang and science u r not an atheist. if u believe theres something out there but its not god, u r not an atheist. if u believe that there is nothing after death and life just ends, u r not an atheist. if u believe we are only materical bodies and not souls, u r not an atheist. to say u r an atheist means that u believe there was no begining, no end, no life at all really... and to believe that means that u r not an atheist. if u have ever once asked any of these questions, whether u have or have not found an answer, that means u cannot be an atheist. it is nonexistent, because to even believe that u r alive at this moment means u cannot b an atheist.
