There is no ‘we’ in atheist.
An atheist is simply a person who does not believe in gods. How can I be anti something in which I do not believe.?
Nor am I anti religion in principle. However, to be fair I need to say that imo organised religion is the greatest confidence trick ever perpetrated in the human race. I could not care less about personal superstitions unless they get in my face. An apologist coming to an atheist forum to spout their drivel is getting in my face. After about a decade of the same nonsense ad infinitum it also becomes quite tedious,
I am an agnostic atheist. By that I mean I do not believe but make no claim to know. Consequently, I have no burden of proof, that honour belongs to you.
From your post, it’s clear you have yet to grasp the concept of empirical evidence or indeed the scientific method. Not surprising. Believers are anti reason and anti science. IE they reject empirical evidence and scientific theories as soon as they contradict dogma;
Scientists tend not to make claims of proof or truth. Unlike dogmatic belief, there are no closed questions in science.
“Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. Scientists record and analyze this data. The process is a central part of the scientific method.”
“The scientific method begins with scientists forming questions, or hypotheses, and then acquiring the knowledge through observations and experiments to either support or disprove a specific theory. “Empirical” means “based on observation or experience,” according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Empirical research is the process of finding empirical evidence. Empirical data is the information that comes from the research.”
"Every scientific theory starts as a hypothesis. A scientific hypothesis is a suggested solution for an unexplained occurrence that doesn’t fit into a currently accepted scientific theory. In other words, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a hypothesis is an idea that hasn’t been proven yet. If enough evidence accumulates to support a hypothesis, it moves to the next step — known as a theory — in the scientific method and becomes accepted as a valid explanation of a phenomenon.
Tanner further explained that a scientific theory is the framework for observations and facts. Theories may change, or the way that they are interpreted may change, but the facts themselves don’t change. Tanner likens theories to a basket in which scientists keep facts and observations that they find. The shape of that basket may change as the scientists learn more and include more facts. “For example, we have ample evidence of traits in populations becoming more or less common over time (evolution), so evolution is a fact but the overarching theories about evolution, the way that we think all of the facts go together might change as new observations of evolution are made,” Tanner told Live Science."
Religious beliefs are based on faith, the definition of which is “belief in things unseen”; it’s blind.
This is confirmed in John 20:29 ,where Jesus is recorded as saying:
In the King James Version of the Bible it is translated as:
“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
