I see neither evidence nor reason to believe that there is a god. I am aware that there are serious arguments for the existence of god and am doing my best to understand them all. For want of a clearer nomenclature for my position I will have to settle for Atheist as it is neither a belief nor a worldview but rather a stance one has on the topic of religion. As an Atheist I do not and can not “convert” people or proselytise regarding my stance. It would be like saying the encouragement of scepticism and open-mindedness is called a belief system, which is a fallacy. Atheism is a religion in the same way that not collecting stamps is a hobby. I think this is a fair representation of where I am coming from.
