Atheism is the non acceptance of Gods existence NOT the rejection of it [ they are not the same ]Immanuel Can wrote:
Atheism cannot get grounds to make the claim that God does not exist ...
it would have to leave that question as a possibility and that would be agnosticism not Atheism
Non acceptance of something is a skeptical position whereas rejection of it is basically a knowledge claim
Knowledge claims require evidence or proof to justify them while skeptical positions require nothing at all
Most atheists are agnostic atheists [ I am too ] - they do not believe in God but cannot disprove his existence
Only gnostic atheists will actually make the claim that God does not exist but they cannot support that claim
