You may not believe in God but She still believes in you, most of the time

I can see from the above quote that you honestly know nothing about
Atheism, so here's the correct definition;

Atheist - One who is without God belief.

We don't make silly claims, we don't make any claims, we simply do not
maintain a belief in a diety. People who believe in a religion make god
claims. The concept of Divinity is meaningless to an Atheist, as s/he has
no belief in any god from which, or on behalf of who, such Divinity claims
spring. Some Atheists may indeed claim that god doesn't exist (called
strong Atheism), but by definition, without knowing any further details,
the definition above is the correct one.

I'm sure many other Atheists on the list would also not like to be "straw
manned" as the above quote attempts to do.

Thank you,
