The question i am always asked by people at school is "How do you know there is a god?" (I know they're all atheist)
But then i always ask THEM "How do you know evolution actually happened."
There is no physical evidence of either happening.
I'm sure you're trolling but this just isn't true.

Powers are for the weak. I have no powers. I mean - unless you count the power to blow minds with my weapons-grade philosophical insights. I'm a thought-o-coaster, I'm the conundrummer in a band called Life Puzzler.
See the definition of "religious belief", because having a belief that is related to religion (e.g. not being religious but since it has to do with religion it's a religious belief) isn't it. Irreligion isn't a religious belief. It's an attitude that stems from beliefs, sure, but none pertaining to religion. As for atheism, read the above ^^.
A very staunch and vocal atheist would be a person who takes their religious beliefs seriously. Take for instance, Chris Hitchens. The man goes on and on about how God does not exist. He's God bothered, as we might say, religion is important to him, much like the Nazis were important to the U.S. in 1942.
EDIT: I understand a particular Atheist schtick is to deny that religion has a part in anything, as though it were unnatural (for instance) for men to be religious; nonetheless, Atheism falls under the category of religious belief, given the common usage and understanding of what we mean when we say, 'do you take your religious beliefs seriously'. Christopher Hitchens does.
