What argument?

I surely exist or else I wouldn't be responding to this thread. You've failed to make any point proving my lack of existence. (Yes, I am baiting you into typing out a well thought out, rational argument proving how I don't exist in some utterly subjective and philosophical way - it'd be much easier to counter than the baseless statement you've provided thus far.)

Erm... Yeah, I'm pretty sure that they exist. If not then I need to be locked up for have two imaginary best friends.

I see what you're trying to accomplish here. Atheism: disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of god / gods. Yet atheists need to believe in their belief of not believing. Kind of paradoxical. But, atheism isn't referring to only a disbelief. It's the specific disbelief in god(s). So i'm going to have to agree with everyone else and say that there isn't a discussion here. Either that or i'm missing whatever it is you're trying to convey.

It's a paradox, yes. The fact that an atheist does not "believe" in any kind of deity therefore has a belief in the lack of a belief.

That doesn't mean the concept doesn't exist, though.

Because of this argument is why I do not classify myself as any religion. I simply don't believe in anything. But if anyone were to prove me wrong I would easily believe them.

I think atheists are just a myth. There's been reported sightings and a few fuzzy photos, but no solid evidence.

No argument here. Just someone that doesn't believe in a religious entity.

This was a really strange attempt at starting an argument... Of course they exist...

What's the argument here? Atheists exist. I'm one and I exist, do I not? Several of my classmates are atheists and i'm pretty sure they also exist...I'm confused...

I like how everyone takes this so super duper serious and they decide to skip over this post.

OMG HOW DARE YOU SAY I NOT EXIST YOU MUST BE SOME TYPE OF CHRISTIAN BIGOT!

It's not a paradox, your statement is incoherent. Atheists don't believe in their lack of belief. They simply lack belief. When dealing with statements of fact belief flies out the window. I don't believe that the sky looks blue on a clear, cloudless day in Florida, I accept the fact that the sky looks blue on a clear, cloudless day in Florida.

I see what you are talking about, but atheism will exist as long as other people believe in god.

I thought the op was posting satire, was I wrong? Or is it supposed to be a "there's no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole" argument? Like you're an atheist until you're dandling from a cliff and then you start praying to god?

I'll just say, I don't believe there is no god, I'm bleeding sure there isn't. I don't say 100% because there's no evidence I can hand you that disproves something completely fantastical, but there isn't a god.

I take things as I perceive them. I don't need a fairytale to answer all my questions, I just choose to tolerate uncertainties. If it isn't there, it doesn't exist. If it shows up, it exists. I don't see what's so difficult about life "in the raw," if you will.

From what I understand of it, atheists don't believe in themselves because we don't believe in a god and without a god, there can't be atheism and... My brain...

intresting opinions here...i think its not really important for me to know if there are atheists or not around. the only important thing to me is what i believe in like is there something higher then we are?

Oh ok, I see how that could be construed as a paradox. My autistic brain has trouble with certain concepts. You explained it well for me.

I didn't realize that I never existed.

On a serious note, people who don't follow a religion do exist.

I am on the atheist side in that I believe that gods exist when people believe in them, in a sort of indirect way.
But I'm not getting into this argument, because I never like it when I do, too much to explain and back up to make it enjoyable via typing >.< .

>being proud of your faith of choice

Atheism takes as much faith as Christianity or any other religion out there. It's foolish to take pride in it. Congratulations, you're proud of the fact that you believe in nothing.

Exactly! I am proud of not believing a so called "God" tht looks over us. I am proud of not believening some religious figure to bow down to.

I liked this video. But I see no paradox in atheists existing. If there was no god, there still can be atheists. I would like someone that thinks there is a paradox to explain their view better. Show specifically how it is a paradox given the definition of atheist is a lack of belief in a god, not that there definitively isn't a god. Technically they don't "believe" that there is definitely no god, they are just empiricists who accept nothing as true except what their 5 physical senses can tell them (however inadequate this).

Saying that atheists "believe" in the fact that there is no god(s) says that atheism originated from religion to begin with. This, of course, is not true, as humans, at the beginning of their existence, knew nothing of any god(s). The origin of atheism is no belief [of any gods] at all.

It isn't a paradox at all.

Sorry mate Atheists DO exist. I'm an Atheist myself. I don't believe in God simply because there's no evidence that he exists. Trying to prove God exists with The Bible is like trying to prove Superman exists with a comic book.
