The disbelief in the existence of god or gods. From the Greek, atheos - a 'without', theos 'god'.
This Group is to all intents solely for those that fall into the above three definition areas. It is not a place for Non-Atheists to debate with Atheists, rather it is a secular meeting place and for those of a like-mindedness to discuss freely their thoughts and ideas pertaining to these things in an atmosphere of acceptance, camaraderie, fellowship, and mutual respect. It is to protect these ideals that membership in this group is either by invitation or by approval.
