The followers of various religions have their own concepts of God. However, when it comes to the opposite of the believers- the atheists, explaining their ideology is very simple. They are all non-believers, or so we think. It may not be in common knowledge, especially of non-readers, but atheism also has many types. While all the types come down to meaning â€œnon-believersâ€, there are small but significant attributes that set them apart from one another. According to an atheism study study published in CNN on July 15th, 2013, and conducted by two researchers, Mr. Silver and Mr. Coleman at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, atheism is an umbrella of at least 6 types. But, before we discuss the 6 types, letâ€™s draw out the differences between the three primary types, that most of us regard to be synonyms to each other. They are Atheist, Agnostic, and Apatheist.
Such non-believers donâ€™t feel content with simply disbelieving in the supremacy. They want the masses to believe it too. They are pretty vocal about why they reject following a particular religion and why it would be better for the society if it did the same.
They are usually well-versed and well-informed and constantly seek information about atheism and religion. They cite their knowledge-sources frequently while discussing the same. It was also found that such people prefer discussing atheism on internet sites.
