For me, my stance is a god could exist.
However, I have every confidence saying x, y, or z god, doesn't exist.
I don't see any reason to leave room for the possibility of x, y, or z god's existence when nothing claimed about them stands up to scrutiny.
If gods turned out to be space aliens or something else, they would cease to be defined as gods. Much like the Wizard of Oz ceased to be the wizard when the curtain was pulled back and his mechanisms discovered.

Hey Annee remember this from yesterday??
Michigan Auto Shop Owner Faces Backlash After Declaring He Won’t Serve Gays
We talked about his go fund me scam. Here's the update. lol
GoFundMe Shuts Down Auto Shop Owner's Anti-Gay Campaign
Woops, guess the same scam doesn't work twice in a row huh??? lol lol
GoFundMe pulls donation site for MI Diesel Mechanic who would refuse gay customers
I saw this story break about 2 hours ago and the first thing I thought is this idiot is looking to score a cash jackpot from all the sympathetic bigots through his own gofundme site the same way the pizza owners did in Indiana.
Everyone knows the story about the mechanic so I will just add the part about gofundme...

And then you have me.
I am an atheist strictly because I don't believe in the concept of god. At least the way most people use it. I will concede there could be a creator or creators. I will even concede there could be entities with powers or technology beyond our wildest imagination, but they are not gods, in the sense that they should be worshiped or revered. They are just different from you and I.
From my perspective, god is a title which humans give to that which they fear, worship, or revere. I will not bestow that title on any entity. Therefore, I know for myself, there are no gods in existence.
Something as super-natural and unfathomable as a god, will always remain a god. Why?
Because supernatural actually means: A manifestation or event attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.
