  • Yeah.. what everyone else said --- but it can get confusing. I'm Buddhist & there is no God in Buddhism.... some people consider me an Atheist & some don't.

    Most people feel that the God in Christianity, Islam, & Judaism is one in the same.... and some feel that anyone who doesn't believe in that God is an Atheist.

    But the term "Atheist" is MEANT to mean the person has no belief in any God or afterlife what-so-ever.

  • : Laura1229, i didn't know that about buddhism... thank you. I know it's definately not being atheist, lol, but good looking out. I know Atheist do not believe in any god, or any higher power or any form of religion, basically they are "If I can't see it and it's not proven scientifically, I don't believe".
