To accept that we are cosmically minuscule, to accept the nature of the universe (without the constraints of short-sighted religion), should empower us to live, should empower us to seek understanding. The reality that we occupy is incomprehensibly vast and wonderful; we can move on from the opinions of 6,000 year old story tellers.

There is no afterlife, this is all you get. There is no all powerful father figure that loves you and everyone. You and every other living thing on this planet are equally special. The universe does not care what your whole life amounts to.

In a scientific point of view, you owe it to everyone of the zillions of possible DNA combinations that will never become humans to enjoy your time in the sun. Go forth and explore and understand the world. The infinite complexity of the universe, that we are lucky enough to occur in, deserves to be discovered through the lens of reason and critical thinking.

Description

Atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.

The term atheism originated from the Greek ἄθεος (atheos), meaning "without god", which was applied with a negative connotation to those thought to reject the gods worshipped by the larger society. With the spread of freethought, skeptical inquiry, and subsequent increase in criticism of religion, application of the term narrowed in scope. The first individuals to identify themselves as "atheist" appeared in the 18th century.

Is someone still an atheist if they believe in ghosts?

For the serious minded I'll suggest "The Origin of Jesus Christ" and to cut-to-the-chase...Ovid created the character we know as Jesus.
"Jesus Christ AntiChrist" or "Crispy Krishna" are good for a satanless and godless chuckle.

Stay on groovin' safari,
Tor

I personally believe God stimulated evolution over time to create the creatures we see today. But that's just me. To each their own!

What do you base your premise on? The claim that a particular god somehow "stimulated" evolution is an extraordinary one and as such, it requires extraordinary evidence. Also, I wonder if you are familiar with the principle of Occam's razor.
