What is the word which describes a person who doesn't believe in Santa Claus?
How about not believing in fairies?
How about not believing in unicorn?

I don't know the answer to those questions. So, why is a person who doesn't believe in a God called an atheist? Like the previous examples,why have a name at all?

Ponder this. As an atheist, I don't believe in any one of the 2700 man made gods we know of.. As a believer, most have one particular God they worship.
That person is so very close to an atheists it's nearly impossible to discover why they aren't. They've rejected the other 2699 but not the one they inherited from their parents. Their beliefs are in an extremely small portion of discredited gods.

Just a thought.

Not having an imagination explains not having any creativity on your part as you experience the world.

Do you only see things in various shades of gray or is it all just all black and white to you?

That sort of emphasises my.point. If it's your imagination making the decisions, you've got nothing.

I don't care if you worship malignant tumours so long as you have evidence it has supernatural powers.
That's the position believers put themselves in which to me is black and white. It would appear that it is the godbotherers who have grey areas.

What makes you..... think my imagination is making the decisions?

"I don't care if you worship malignant tumours so long as you have evidence it has supernatural powers."

Where did I state that God had supernatural powers?

"That's the position believers put themselves in which to me is black and white. It would appear that it is the godbotherers who have grey areas."

Your inability to realize that the proof of God's existence is all around you is your problem I assure you.

Imagination is good as long you don't hear voices in your head, as most people Christians believe Jesus is their best friend.

You must believe "Where did I state that God had supernatural powers?" in that he would just be another human.

Because a significant number of adults believe in god(s) and it's a very relevant distinction in our culture. The same is not true for Santa Clause.

..there is no god..no one can prove it...and don't even say that dumbshit ''you can't prove there isn't''''
...so, yes, the word '''atheism'' is ridiculous = there is no god to believe in/it's a fairy tale like Santa

From an atheists view, they both have the same status, they don't exist, but one has a name.
My point is, why name us atheists. Why use a name at all.
What are people called who dont believe in Santa Claus?

If you met a person on the street and he never spoke of any religion or atheism, what would you call him?

Because the distinction is relevant. There aren't giant swathes of adults arguing over whether or not Santa is real.

It is not generally accepted as reality that no god(s) do or can exist.

I have to say, I don't believe in your gods of the Left who have inflicted so much oppression and death last century as well as this one.

Obama was just an empty suit, nothing there really at all.

And Biden? He is even more vacuous, so much so that calling him an empty suit is giving him too much credit. In fact, do you hear that sucking sound? That is the sound coming from the leaderless Oval Office.

Government will not lead to our "collective salvation" just like opposing government at times when they should be opposed will not lead to automatic damnation.

The atheist cannot help but worship at the feet of the state once they have rejected the God that formed them and gave them life. For you see, it is how we are wired. We require a God.

Why is it relevant to the point religion labelled them that? Couldn't it be they be non believers as opposed to believers?

It doesn't have to be accepted if there's a god or not. Everything else on earth is based on available evidence and not only is there none for God but there no reason for a god when everything is explained.

Shut up you stupid fool. You're paranoid and delusional.
As if republicans are sanctamonious and unblemished and why assume all democrats are atheists and communists?
You're barking mad dickhead.

Now shut the hell up!

And no, I can't help you if you are too stupid to see it or understand it.
