6% of Atheists believe in God.

-"Six percent of atheists said they were "absolutely certain" that God exists; nearly one-in-seven agnostics said the same."

That's what it said in the article. I kept scratching my head...

atheism could either be described as 1. the lack of believe in a god - for instance, you can know a god is real, but that god is not worth following or obeying. ie. the god statues of easter island.
or 2. the lack of belief that any god is real - for instance this would be the default position, if you don't know what something is, then you can't be convinced that it is real. ie. an invisible, undetectable entity that can't interact with reality.

Those would be the nominal atheists... or respondents who simply don't know what "atheist" means. DDO is continual proof that many do not know.

I doubt an atheist would call those statues God. Perhaps you meant; an atheist can know what some people CALL God is real. Now that would make a lot of sense.

calling an invisible, undetectable wizard that created everything out of nothing doesn't make a lot of sense to me either.
if you said " this coffee cup is GOD" then i would believe your god is real, but i have no reason to call the coffee cup a god, because it has none of the qualities i've heard people say that other deities have.

It seemed strange to me, too, but I looked into it. The question that the poll asked was, "Do you believe in God or a universal spirit?", and since atheism only pertains to God, they are free to believe in a "universal spirit" whilst still being atheists.
