i wouldn't define it that way because it could be interpreted to mean that if there were evidence of a god, one still wouldn't believe.
a more careful (but perhaps not definitive) definition would be: a lack of belief in that for which there is no evidence.
It's a belief, dude. It doesn't require strict proof one way or the other. If you're uncertain as to whether there is/are a god/gods, then you're looking for agnosticism. Remember as well that you can be absolutely certain of something, right up until you're proven wrong, at which point it is perfectly acceptable to change your mind.
I'm an atheist myself, but I'm perfectly fine with the thought that I may be wrong. I don't think I am, but I could be, and if I'm given proof that contradicts my position, I'll accept it and become a theist.
Because Christians are so ingrained in their fantasy world, the concept of reality baffles them. You can explain it 20 different ways and they'll still get confused and write you off as a blind fool who's lost his way in the land of Oz.
Not understanding the following 4 terms:
Theism is the -claim- a god exists, atheism is the regection of that claim. There is nothing involving factual information in either.
Gnosticism vs Agnosticism is where you are claiming to "know" or not.
All atheists who aren't just edgelords will tell you they would fall under "Agnostic Atheist"
This means they do not believe the claims of theism, but they also admit they don't know 100%
Could a god exist? Do we have any scientific evidence for one? Not at this time.
because, Atheists believe God doesn't exist, but they contradict themself and say Atheism isn't a belief in the lack of a God, just not believing in a God. Then when you ask the atheist why they go around pushing their opinions, because a true atheist would remain silent, they complain that religious could push their beliefs why can't an atheist? Atheists are fucking stupid.
Because memes can't ponder, only exist... in their ever dankest forms.
