Are atheists same as theistsI don't understand atheism. I don't understand how atheism is different from theism. The latter believe in existence of God, and the former believe in non-existence of God. In either case, it is just a belief in something that can neither be proven nor be dis-proven enough to convince the other party.
While I can understand somebody saying they don't believe that God exists (ie, being agnostic), I can't understand equating with believing that God doesn't exist.
