Re: [humanism-174] definition of atheism (again)

*Almost* all. There are some atheists who believe in the efficay of "alternative medicine" and who believe in Intelligent Design via aliens, or who believe in the invisible hand of the market.

How about "Natheist"?��

But seriously... what atheist does not have a scientifically naturalistic worldview? We all do.

For myself, I find that definition too limited. Do I really have to put "naturalist" in front of "atheist" in order to properly describe myself? A naturalistic system of knowledge is clearly implied.

I define atheism as having no active belief in God. Not to mention that we don't apply this 100% certainty rule to anything else.
