Atheism – Does It Really Exist?

I’ve been cruising around some religious forums and discovered quite a few posters proclaiming to be atheists, arguing against God’s existence.

Do you think it is inconsistent to the concept of atheism for someone who “lacks belief” in God to actively work against God’s existence by attempting to show that God doesn’t exist?

Are they just trying to prove that lack of existence to themselves because, deep down, they’re not really sure?

What truly defines an atheist?
