    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Many religious texts mention non-believers. It makes sense that a book promoting one religion over another would attempt to address those who disbelieve it. Whether the purpose is to demonize the opposition, or just debate some of the issues non-believers might bring up, it's a legitimate practice. And from the viewpoint of an atheist, the bible mentions them because it was written by humans.

    It isn't very profound, that there will be non-believers, It matters not what you advocate there will always be skeptics. I find nothing in the Bible that provokes me to actually believe in God, only living has done that. Through living I know that there is a God, no; I can't prove it and have no desire to, though I know that none can prove that there isn't either.

    Thank, M.T.D.  Good response...humans vs. humans with no supreme being involved.  Logical. 
    Dmop...provoke is a good choice of words.  Thanks for responding.

    the "atheists" of the Bible are / were  Christians(followers of Jehovah) as well as those who did not follow other 'gods' or believe in them .... thus they were called atheists-
    atheism is actually a form of idolatry and that in any form should be avoided at all costs -

    Jesus is real and HE paid a very high price for all who will believe in Him...

    I'm not an atheist, but last time I checked I don't think anyone has ever thought or believed that The Bible doesn't exist?

    It is a book and that is a proven fact.

    Atheists don't believe in God, which is what is referenced in The Bible, but most people(including atheists) view The Bible as a historical artifact that has some sense of meaning in the world.
