A Presentation on Atheism
Introduction to Atheism
What is Atheism?
What do Atheists Believe?
At its core, the lack of belief in a god or gods. However, it extends beyond just a disbelief in gods and manifests itself in many different ways. (http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=6487)
Many atheists encourage a belief in logic and reason as opposed to faith.
There are many different types of atheism, all with minor or major differences that some people feel defines them better than just a non-belief in a god or Gods. (http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=6487)
Many would assume that this question is better phrased as "what do atheists
not
believe", but in fact, atheists do hold many beliefs that can vary greatly from person to person and group to group.
There are atheists who hold no beliefs and instead choose to follow atheism as a complete lack of belief, drawing no connections to religion. However, depending on what type of atheist a person is, they can still follow the teachings of the Bible (Christian Atheism), the cultural identities of Judaism (Jewish Atheism) and many other belief systems that may seem inherently non-atheist.
