A true Atheist in the strict sense of the word cannot exist. Atheists make assertive claims such as, “There is no god”, and “There is no afterlife”. For one to be able to make such statements one would have to posses ALL knowledge. We currently only know a fraction of the universe. Most scientists would say even less than that. We only know a little bit about our own galaxy which is one out of hundreds of millions of galaxies in the universe. There very well could be empirical evidence out there proving the existence of God. Until one has attained ALL Knowledge thus being able to definitly know if such hypothetical evidence does not exist, one cannot make such an assertive statement that there is no god. It would be more accurate to say, “based on the knowledge we currently have, I do not think there is sufficient evidence to support the existence of a god or an afterlife. Although that may change in the future.” This would make the person more of an Agnostic. Moral of the story, I don’t Believe in Atheists.
