        Calling an atheist a 'believer' is a complete misunderstanding of what atheism is.
         Atheism only suggests proof is more important than 'belief'...
         It isn't a belief in itself, unless you consider facts and observation (  ) a 'belief.  You know... like science.  
         All religions have historical roots.. in a specific time and country, a series of events, a way to explain the unknown.
        Atheism is just the statement . 'prove it' ... you can't prove your claims of God, the Bible, the Koran, etc.?
        Then, I don't believe it.  
        Atheism doesn't make claims like religion..  Only that the claims of religion can't be proved.
