Atheism sounds like such a paradox, the belief of not believing. It is the rejection of the idea of a god or deities and, in turn, religion. However, it is not as black and white as it may seem. Belief systems are a multilayered grey area that comprises all the worldviews that exist in the world. Theist: someone who believes in God can be someone who ardently believes in the creator of the universe and follows their religion as best as they can. It can also be a person who accepts the existence of God but renounces religious rituals because to them, rituals aren’t necessary. Similarly, an atheist is a person with an absolute lack of belief and/or any inclination towards religious practices of cultural significance like festivals or, it can be a person who rejects God but accepts cultural byproducts of religion. What’s common between the two is knowing what one believes in. Somewhere in the middle of these two extremes is agnosticism: when a person entertains the existence of God but insists that it can’t be proven or disproven.
