Exclamation Atheism is the positive affirmation of "there is no God."

Regarding the atheistic would view. I certainly agree that all atheists are not the same. But you all are wrong when you imply that "there are no pronouncements, no obligations, or world view, nothing. Just one position on one point."

Atheism is the positive affirmation of "there is no God." If it is a position of "I don't know," or "I think there is no God," then that is agnosticism.

Wrong. Atheism is the simple position "I do not believe gods exist". Try again.

Stop the Holy See men!

Sounds like you're trying to shift the burden of proof. Fail .
