It says exactly what I said it did. Atheists, by definition, do not believe in god, gods...otherwise known as "deities". I fail to see how that varies from what I said it would.

I am not saying atheists are acting like anything. I believe other people were arguing about that. I did reference Dawkins, but only in reference to what was mentioned about him before. Previous to this discussion I was not very informed about the man and had to Google him to make sure I was thinking of the right person. All I am saying is that atheists do believe in something they can't actually prove, and I think that qualifies as faith. How they act varies from person to person I would imagine.

Lastly, I understand your point about the language however if everyone is going to decide to debate these types of issues I don't see how you can have a discussion of any value unless certain definitions are agreed upon. I mean, just look at this thread.

When I was younger, people asked me what I believed in, what religion I belonged to. I decided that agnosticism best described my state of being. It still does. Bill Maher on the other hand considers himself an atheist. The difference is easy to explain. If Bill and I were out on a boat fishing and suddenly Jesus appeared..walking across the water to us while making it rain frogs...Bill and I would have two different reactions. His would be "I guess I was wrong", mine would be "so it is true."
