Being an atheist doesn't mean you can't have beliefs.
I'm and atheist, and I believe in reincarnation.

Damn, lots of people must not know what the definition of atheism is.
Atheism is only the belief that there is no deity. Not the rejection of belief entirely.

From the earth we come, and to the earth we will return. A very basic concept that has nothing to do with Atheism. You don't deserve the red thumbs.

I'm sorry for the people thumbing you down. Some branches of Buddhism can be classified as being atheistic. Most people are mislead by the new and popular atheism, where people like Hitchens and Dawkins are some of the most vocal voices, and think they are the only representatives of atheism.

Why are you lot thumbing him down? He is right you know.
Traditional Buddhism is an atheistic religion and the lot of them still belive in reincarnation and such crap.
Atheism only speaks of ones belief regarding gods, not spirituality, afterlife, magic etc.

To everyone thumbing this guy down, you're all fucking wrong.    
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism   
Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities.[1][2] In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[3][4][5] Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist.[4][5][6][7]   
You can believe in the Afterlife and still be an atheist, simply put its anti theism. I'm not sure why people have this drawn up belief that atheists are intellectual types who love science and hate all tandems of faith, considering the fact most don't even know the definition of their own belief apparently.

like you said, he would be anti theism... that is different to the label atheism.... the guy would be antiheist not atheist

This is probably gonna fetch me a lot of red thumbs too, but why did he get thumbed down so much? "Atheism" only means not believing in the existence of any deities, and the concept of reincarnation isn't necessarily bound to any divine beings. Atheism does not mean not believing in any supernatural... stuff.
Atheism is even accept within some religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, for example.

That... That is... That's WROOOOONG! Faggot

Sorry mate, but then you can't identify yourself as an atheist,
an atheist is a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings.

Why is there always that one guy in a post like this that has to start the mother of all shitstorms?

Just because there's no name for your belief it doesn't mean it isn't a religion.
User avatar #12 to #10 - adzodeux (11/01/2013) [-]
Religion: "The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods." Reincarnation itself doesn't necessarily have to be controlled by a God, so his belief isn't a religious one

By THAT definition, Buddhism isn't a religion.
User avatar #22 to #13 - kikisu (11/01/2013) [-]
Buddhism isn't, it's a way of life, a set of rules to live by. You can be buddhist and still be considered a christian.
User avatar #14 to #13 - adzodeux (11/01/2013) [-]
I know, it's more of a belief system
User avatar #15 to #14 - atoma (11/01/2013) [-]
But there are many who consider Buddhism a religion, and there are other definitions of religion. Metaphorically, the definition of a word isn't written in stone. A language is constantly modified by people, what a person does when he writes a dictionary is to attempt to get technical and with complicated words they often fail.

Anime was originally just short for "animation" but it if you should define anime now days you would say that it's a Japanese cartoon because as far as we're concerned, that's what it means to us.

The definition you showed me was oversimplified. Not that I blame them for doing so considering the difficulty of defining a word like that.

In a way, we don't speak entirely the same language. We've merely adapted similarly, a Norwegian person and a Swedish person can speak to each other just fine using their own language. Hidden because it got kind of irrelevant to the topic.

I suppose so, I guess google's "define" function isn't the best way of actually defining something

I don't believe in magic but that doesn't mean I can't hope. Ignorance is bliss, people can choose to hope for anything so they should choose what they really want instead of what they are told. Not like this has anything to do with you.

Why no? Atheism is the rejection of a deity. Not the rejection of physical reincarnation. You fucking asshat.
