I think that atheism is a belief system. Like wiccanism, shamanism, juedaism, christian-ism, leftism, lol. The only thing that is false, is when a person of one faith believes that anothers beliefs or faith are false.
I agree with BizGenGirl. The idea of a 'false' -ism comes in two varieties.
1. Most religions are built on beliefs in some sort of supernatural reality. Since atheism sees no supernatural, it has been called false.
2. Many believers see their beliefs as the true beliefs, leaving all other beliefs in the false category. As such, atheism is called false.
If people are to be defined by what they do not believe, than should we for instance define Christians as non-Muslims? Just because someone does not believe in one particular "ism" that does not mean they do not believe in ANYTHING.
An ism isn't made an ism because it has a God as a focal point. It is an ism because it is enough of a unified ideology that more than one person can get underneath its tent. Deists don't have any right to define the secular ideologies which other people find meaning in, any more than secularists get to define anyone else's God.
Your question is hollow - it has no spirit
It is only false if you are not the one believing in it.

Theists/Atheists: Can you compliment the opposite belief system?If you're a theist, what's something positive you could say about atheists? If you're an atheist, what's something positive you could say about theists? Please no sarcastic or passive-aggressive responses.

Just a question, but it would seem if there really were no God, then Atheists couldn't exist. Is Atheism a religion? They definitely seem to be unified by a common belief.

Why do so many people have misperceptions about atheism and agnosticism?

I have talked to many atheists and some say that atheists are people who do not believe in the concept of God. But in the past people said that atheists were people who believed that there was "no God". What actually is atheism?

Why are you - undoubtedly - sure that a god can't exist?A vast majority of scientist don't give dualism credibility, sure, but it's also accepted that their theories only last until there're disproven. So, do your beliefs henge so much on fallible human logic, that you have to absolutely disagree...
