 If somene I knew chose to become an Atheist., I would just tell them, it is definitely their choice and that nobody..not even God can or will force you to become anything else (something or someone that you don't want to become).

Haha, I posted a post almost exactly like this yesterday. I am an atheist. I do not believe in god or any type of being. I don't believe there is anything. When you die your dead and nothing else. I believe this because this is just how I feel for one thing but, I don't see how anyone could actually believe the bible is real. I think its a story. A made up story written over several years. Im not saying anything bad about anyone who does believe. I do not judge others for their beliefs but, I just don't understand how anyone can believe in some man in the sky.

Atheist means you don't believe there is a god.

Why? It makes more sense (to me) to ask why someone WOULD believe in god. It's illogical. 

And I don't really understand your last question. How does one decide to become an atheist? It seems to me that it would be more of a realization. I don't understand how people can be expected to just "decide" to believe in something or not believe in something. I can't just decide to be a Christian and believe in god and the bible and all that.

You don't "think about becoming an atheist." It's just a name for someone who basically doesn't have a religion and knows god doesn't exist. You either are or you're not. You don't decide to become one.

im sorry you dont understand my question. there is no other way i can think to word it. 

Maybe you are misunderstanding. If i was not happy in my religion and was questioning the entire exsitence of god what would you say to me to make me consider being an Atheist?

I never said anything about just deciding. I am talking about information

That's how it was for me. I thought of myself as agnostic for a long time because I acknowledge the fact that I am not all-knowing and therefor do not have the answers. But one day I just realized that it was all so illogical there was no way I could ever possibly believe it, so technically I was/am actually atheist. Not a choice at all, more of a revelation.

1. I don't believe in anything supernatural, including a higher power.

2. No proof, no personal experience. I believe what I can see and what can be proven.

3. Everything makes sense, that's why it's my beliefs.

4. Follow your heart.
