    What does "atheist" mean?

    What is atheism? Is it the belief that there is no god like an active stance? Is it lack of belief in any god like a baby or a dog has?

    Take a look at this hub by Slarty O'Brian.  He's a fairly well known atheist here on HubPages.  His explanation of what atheism is and is NOT is very helpful.  Scroll down to the part under the heading "So why Pantheism and not just atheism?"

    It is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities.

    I didn't know that dogs had gods?  lol

    Simply stated, an atheist is one who does not believe that God exists.

    Now, whether atheists are in the same league as babies and dogs is another question.
