    Sure it does. There are atheists who are so dogmatic as to be impossible to reason with, just as there are religious people like that.

    Atheism doesn't have a set of principles to be followed. It is just a natural state for a human being not believe in something that has no proof of its existence.

    a·the·ism
       /ˈeɪθiˌɪzəm/ Show Spelled[ey-thee-iz-uhm] Show IPA
    –noun
    1.
    the doctrine or belief that there is no god.
    2.
    disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings.

    Now of course in a situation where God came down from the heavens and demonstrated that (s)he does indeed possess all the power attributed to a god, yet people would deny his or her existence, then it would be possible, but in reality, it doesn't work.

    Not annoying, but scarily-crazy devoted: female K-pop fans are not to be trifled with.

    Hi Strawberries! Thanks and I like yours a lot, too, truly.

    K-pop is Korean pop music it has a notoriety for having some of the most rabid female fans of anything. Not only for whipping themselves into a frenzy over their idols, but also for doing drastic things to get their attention, lots of letters in blood, that kind of thing.

    I don't want to derail the thread, but I have to address one more thing. Ideally, yes, what you describe is what it means to be an atheist. That's the dictionary definition. And the dictionary definition of a politician is someone elected to serve the best interests of the people. See where I'm going?

    The proper logical position for an atheist is, "I see no proof of God, and the collected evidence suggests that a God is highly improbable, so I do not believe." But humans being human, it doesn't always go that way in real life. There are many atheists who come by their atheism through a hate of religion rather than a love of science. And rather than take the tack you describe above, these people accept as a given that there is no God. That is exactly the flip side of fundamentalists who start with the given that God exists and work from there. These people are not hard to find, and they are who Seymour was referring to as "fundamentalist atheists".
