And who better to answer this question that an atheist and an agnostic? To me the mark of an atheist is that we will accept new ideas about our world, theists have closed their minds to new possibilities because "they know a god did it".
Yes. And I am open to the theist's need for certainty and common acceptance of their beliefs. I can accept without taking it on board. The differences of opinion and understanding are important. Do we want knowledge that is set in concrete?
I do not want to think that everything is unchangeable or up to the capricious whim of some deity. I want to think that we live in a universe of infinite possibilities and someday we will understand it.
Incorrect on the first sentence. Correct on the second.
Not sure why you thought the first one was incorrect.
Atheist are not religious people. They don't believe in God or the devil. A religious dogma is a doctrine proclaimed by clergy authority as true. Atheists don't believe the bible is factual.
But atheists do believe that "religious dogma" exists. We can see it, touch it, and read it. However, religious dogma does not have any authority over an atheist, it is not law or even logical. But it does exist.
Atheists are not open to a "god" theory (they prefer science), but agnostics are. Both atheists and agnostics prefer facts and logic over "testimony" and beliefs.
You are correct!
