They Do Exist

Atheists in Foxholes

h/t: Specialist Jeremy Hall for pic above and Atheist Empire for this:

Atheism (A'thE-iz"um),-n, is defined as:

1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God.

2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

The term atheism comes from the Greek word atheos, meaning godless. Atheos is derived form a, meaning "without," and theos, meaning "deity".

Atheism is to be distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open the question whether there is a god or not.
