Atheism to me doesn't mean denial of the existence of God. I think most atheist would agree with Charles Bradlaugh (England's leading 19th century atheist), who said, in the Freethinkers text book, (1876): “Atheism is without God. It does not assert God. The atheist does not say that there is no God, but he says”I know not what you mean by God. I am without the idea of God. The word God to me is a sound conveying no clear or distinct affirmation. I do not deny God, because I cannot deny that of which I have no conception, and the conception of which by its affirmer is so imperfect that he is unable to define it for me.”
Is the Christian God depicted in the bible, God? The Christian God is a God perceived as a being, supernatural in power, dwelling somewhere external to this world, who periodically invades this world in miraculous ways. A God who came to earth in the form of a divine human being. A God that parted the Red Sea, walked on water, raised the dead, and created the universe six thousand years ago! The very idea of the Christian God wreaks of superstitious insanity as does all other religious Gods. The Christian God was conceived out of ignorance to explain events that happened at any given place or time. Believing in the existence of this tribal God throughout history has lead to such atrocities as the Inquisition, the Crusades, and religious wars. The Christian God is a delusional God. All religious Gods are delusional. I do not deny the existence of God, “because I cannot deny that of which I have no conception”.
