I was talking several days ago with a Believer who was telling me what an atheist is. I personally do not have any Gods, therefore I consider myself an atheist. However this person was telling me that an atheist says there is no God.
Well I dont. I dont say that. and I consider myself an atheist. So trying to explain my position one more time i came up with the following:
Do you pray?, Do you believe that if you pray things will get better? Do you have someone to directs your prayers to?....... Well I dont. I dont have a Deity or a special "someone" "somewhere" in the universe. Thats why I consider my self with no God. Atheist.
An Atheist is someone who just doesn't believe that someone will listen to his prayers, therefore doesnt pray.
