Less broadly, atheism is the rejection of belief that any deities exist.[5][6] In an even narrower
sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[1][2][7][8] Atheism is
contrasted with theism,[9][10] which, in its most general form, is the belief that at least one
deity exists.[10][11][12]

I've always known you to say that atheists are people who believe (assert) that there is "no God",
which is false, or, at best, the narrowest definition from above.

I hadn't realised (until recently) the extent to which you've interwoven it with politics. Can you
get anything right about what atheism actually is?
