For example, there is a classification of atheists that is:

Positive Atheists x Negative Atheists.

The former are all those who do not believe in god by logical positive
reasons and are sure of that, f.ex. because of scientically based reasons.
In second class are all the rest, who deny god's existence simply by
negative reasons. There are included those who don't believe in god because
they think there is so much bad in the world, or their mothers, in general
religious, hit them a lot when they were children or because they lost the
love of their lives and so do not believe anymore... These are not even
considered serious atheists and at the first laugh of a girl/boy in a
religious cult ( or even someone pass the hands on their asses... :) ),
turn to be great believers...: "God made marvelous things to me... Alelujah
!!! " ... they have just psychological ( even if little ) problems or social
non-adjustments... got it ???

Positive Atheist
"Wanna be a positive atheist ?: Just read the bible, with inteligence..."
