What are the teachings of Atheism?
As stated previously there is no organized belief system. Atheists are largely independent (free thinkers) and there is not strong organization although there are a few groups.

Just like there is no one leader for Theism -- there are actually leaders of different branches of Theism and there are branches of Theism that are more Congregationalist or Individualist -- the same is true of Atheism. There are numerous categories of Atheists who add belief…
