"Satanists" worship a "devil." (Satan-who I believe is as made-up as "God."). Atheists don't worship anything. They are "Anti-theists.."  They don't believe in any god or gods of any kind.

 

It is not a fundamental requirement of human existence to have to worship something.  It is not necessary.

So it's not a belief, but a non belief and thats as far as it's goes?

No, it isn't a non-believer.  People sometimes assume that if a person doesn't believe in what they believe is obvious or true that they must be non-believers.  Atheists just don't happen to believe in the existence of gods.  They believe in many things and one of them is that there are other explanations for why things are as they are and why they happen than a god's wisdom or interference.  Believe me, it isn't a non-belief situation at all.  Just a different concept of how things work and why things happen.  At least that is my take on it.  I would say different people would tell you different lists of how they feel or think just as any group would do.

=======================

And I was just saying Atheism is a non belief and not a religious type of thought.

I don't believe in the Great Pumpkin, so there's no need for a organized

non-belivers camp. There's no need for any further waste of time on

said pumpkin.

=============================

If I'm an Atheist, can I get one of those big red "A"s to wear aroung my neck?

No, wait, that was a California BG thing. Never mind.
