Justin Schieber on Twitter: "Nobody just lacks belief in unicorns. We all believe (for good reason, mind you) that they are fictions. So too is it the case with gods."
Justin Schieber (an atheist) argues against the claim that "atheism is just a lack of belief". This seems fair enough: what atheists tend to use the claim for is to say that they don't have a duty to rebut any random stuff someone comes up with, but in fact, we consider the eixstence of gods and unicorns unlikely based on our background knowledge and the lack of expected evidence (which is evidence of absence), and this is a legitimate belief.
