being a atheist(not beliving in a God) kinda proves that there is one because you cant have a anti nothing.

I have a question for you halo4man, and I mean it seriously (means I want an honest answer from you): do you believe in fairies, trolls, Nessie and Allah? Because I don't, so according to you these things should exist. Right?

Allah is the same God as the Christian one - he believes in Allah, Yahweh, God - whatever you wanna call it.

Ok, so let's change Allah to, say, Osiris; or Seth - who is really not the same god ;) bah, just insert a random deity not associated to monotheistic religion...

The Egyptian religion is polytheistic, like Greek and Norse...
But Krishna, Buddha, etc. etc. are monotheistic. =D

Hinduism isn't exactly monotheistic. There are three main divinities, Bhrama, vishnu and shiva and Krishna is Vishnu's eight avatar (I mean the incarnation, not the blue na'vi guy).

However remember that a part of atheist people is agnostic,

No...atheists are people who don't believe in any deity. Agnostics are people who don't have knowledge or claim to have knowledge about religion or deities. Different.

First, agnosticism doesn't handle your knowledge of religion or deities. It only says you can't prove anything, no matter how good you know religions. Second, yes, they are different things, but are associable; many atheists here are agnostic atheists, me included. Because I know there is no way to prove anything in religion, still I don't believe.

Somebody who's atheist doesn't mean their 'anti-god'. I don't believe gorillas with 7 eyes and machine guns as arms exist but I think it would be pretty cool if they did. The way I see it god when you view it from the three major monotheistic religions can't exist. If god is all-powerful, all-knowing and good why does evil still exist on earth?
