Professor Richard Dawkins explains the basics of actual Atheist non beliefs and shares some feelings on his societal views

Basically it comes down to requiring indisputable evidence (not faith) before accepting a statement as true. Any statement that becomes falsified is immediately rejected as a known falsehood. So we have a concept of what is true and what is not based on testing claims in a measurable way that have a clear method to see success and a clear method to see failure. Some claims fall into the gradient in-between and we resolve to mathematical statistical probability of likelihood to determine relevance in future discourse. The greatest honor is science is to either discover a new level of understanding or discredit a previously held truth. Both make them a star and a pillar in the history of science. Truth and only testable truth that has never failed is permitted to remain.
