gk. A- "without"; -Theism "belief in gods"

Atheism is merely the attitude held towards gods by a person who is an atheist, i.e. without belief in gods; and although some atheists (strong atheists) will make the assertion that there are no gods, most atheists, including weak atheists (those atheists who accept that there may be some gods somewhere that we have not yet looked), will deny the existence of particular self- or nature-contradicting gods.
