What do you have to gain by attacking atheists?
Is it to boost your ego or somehow validate your belief in an invisible deity up in the sky?
I could start a thread claiming that Christianity, Islam, Judaism, et al, are all illogical too.
When you say He doesn't exist and then say you have a lack of belief in this non existent entity is illogical.
It's just like saying you have a lack of belief in Tinkerbell or the Tooth Fairy.

"Lack of Belief" is a phrase no one uses.

In order for Atheist to say they have a lack of belief in God they implicitly acknowledge God's existence. Your lack of belief in God has to be predicated on his existence or it's just illogical.

What do you mean playing with words? You clearly said no one does that but one simple google search proves you wrong. You main point was that atheists don't have a "lack of belief" so the OP is completely invalidated, but you are wrong, many atheists very often do claim a "lack of belief" so the OP's point is not invalidated.
