That is probably because I don't study atheism because I see it as bogus misconceptions. (Just a fact in my perspective) Atheism means you don't believe in a God. How you promote your ideals on the subject has nothing to do with it. You are either an atheist or you are not. You may consider yourself an atheist and have morales, you may not have morals. That is all relative and un-related. Someone can claim to be a christian and not truly be one. There is no faith involved in atheism unless you have faith in other atheists to prove the "non-existance" of a God. That is the only place faith could actually surface. Or faith in yourself to do it, which from my perspective is rather arrogant and seems to be a heavy burden of the sin of pride more than faith. How so? Can you tell me a religious act that an atheist would perform? Saying prayers wouldn't be of any use to an atheist. Based off this post: Studying would then be your version of a religious act. But that is ludicrous. Sorry, if that sounds aggressive but that is not religious, it is scholarly. Only another atheist would consider academics "religious". This is precisely why the world has made two words for academics and religion and classified them in 2 entirely seperate groups.
