You cannot pretend to "Be" you either are or you aren't. "To be or not to be, that is the question" from Shakespeare seems to be along the lines of what you're talking about.

unbelief - n : a rejection of belief [syn: disbelief] [ant: belief]
"Newton's Third Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." - Sir Isaac Newton
Unbelief is an equal and opposite reaction to the action of belief.
If someone is a believer, they must believe in unbelief or else thier belief is not valid.
As long as people continue to believe, unbelief will continue to exist. Once belief ceases to exist then all unbelief too will disappear and then we will all just 'be'.
Be - To exist in actuality; have life or reality: I think, therefore I am.
Once you acknowledge reality then you will accept every human being.
be·ing - n. The state or quality of having existence.
human being - n. A human.
As anyone can see un-belief is the more difficult path since it is far easier to just believe.
