Oh, it's not a belief. It's knowledge that none of the many invisible gods claimed to exist, have ever been proven.
Well that's actually false. But even if it was true it doesn't make the claims false. Unproven doesn't eqaul false.

It's false? Please show me one invisible god that has been proven, then.

Otherwise you have just made another false claim.

I wonder if someone does a bit of substitution and thinks. For example, my prophet dissected mars into 8 pizza slices OR my prophet converted water into paneer tikka masala. Or someone cut head of dinosaur to join human body to make dino-man.

Of course.


An extract from "atheistalliance.org/thinking-out-loud/how-we-know-gods-are-imaginary".
We have to conclude that, either there are thousands of real gods, or there are none. But since gods are so different, and are contradictory in many ways, it is impossible that all gods could be real. So we can rule out the option that all gods are real, and we are left with only one option–none are real.

The fact that all gods work equally well is clear evidence that they are all equally imaginary. The reported benefits of answered prayers, communion and guidance could be nothing more than imagination with a large dose of confirmation bias.

Is there any other reasonable conclusion?
"We have to conclude that ..."
Exactly who be "We"?
We everybody/everyone, or we Atheists.

Rubbish.
It's not an "all" or "none" thing.
There could also be "some" gods or only "one" GOD.
Just because some gods are imaginary does not imply that every/all gods are imaginary.

"The fact that all gods work equally well is clear evidence that they are all equally imaginary. The reported benefits of answered prayers, communion and guidance could be nothing more than imagination with a large dose of confirmation bias."
More rubbish.

Yes.
Atheists are as gullible as non-Atheists.

In your clamour to rubbish anything to do with any criticism of religion, you have completely missed the point. Maybe calm down a bit and wipe the foam from your mouth before reading again with the blinkers off.
