What stuff do you believe in even though you dont have evidence and are atheist? I believe in aliens and some sort of afterlife. I also believe theres a 4th density that has different laws of physics. The 4th density im talking about is not about time. I believe theres alot of stuff the universe can do that would seem supernatural. I believe in magic and supernatural like powers that humans arent capable of.

Long wet kisses that last for three days!
I don't really believe any single dogma; I would like to believe a lot of things, but I can't until I see some kind of evidence for whatever it is we're talking about.
In terms of God and/or gods:
I highly doubt the existence of any theistic God or gods. I certainly don’t know if there is a deistic God or not. I’m very skeptical. I don’t discount the possibility. However, we can barely get off our own rocky little spec of dust. We are ignorant to much of the Universe. I don’t think we have much business positing answers to questions that we don’t even know are valid themselves. Maybe we (humans) should say I don’t know for once, be humble, admit ignorance, and learn more about the Universe before deciding whether or not there is some supernatural intelligent and intentive force behind everything, of which would likely require a much larger explanation than it offers.

In regards to your question:
I believe that aliens probably do exists for the simple reason that it seems much less probable that they don't exist rather than they do when taking into account the billions of stars in each galaxy and the billions of galaxies.
"Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days. Goodnight." - Crash Davis (Kevin Costner) in "Bull Durham"

Seriously though, I don't believe in anything like magic, miracles, souls, ghosts, astrology, etc. I believe that the scientific method, while not perfect, is the best method we have for determining what is likely to be true.

I believe it is possible, if not probable, that there is life on other planets (just due to the odds, given the number of stars that are estimated to exist and the number of planets that have been discovered in the last 15 years). I doubt that, if aliens exist, that they visit Earth.

I believe in small government, fiscal responsibility, and a non-intervenist foreign policy. I believe that people should be allowed to do as they wish, so long as they are not causing harm to others. I believe in treating people based on the content of their character, rather than on their race, religious or political affiliation, sexual orientation, nationality, or gender.
I believe that the universe is totally, absolutely without benevolence or pity and that we are lucky to be part of it. There is no one up there -- anywhere in the universe -- who cares in the least about me (or you, for that matter).

However, I also believe that the universe exists and that I am part of it. And that's a truth that's eternal.
- I don't believe in intelligent aliens, even though I have no proof they do or do not exist. I fully am open to the possibility that there is intelligent life out there, but I just have an "I doubt it" attitude. I have zero doubts there is life out there, but intelligent life like us? I'm doubtful. But I'd never go out of my way to say it was impossible.

- I believe there are creatures that exist which we've yet to get a real look at, perhaps even ones that have "popped up" from time to time... like the loch ness monster, though I'm only using that as a syntax example, I'm not saying Nessy exists. "That type of thing," more or less. I have no specifics with which to offer up, however.. all I know is that we have many waters that are less explored than the space above us, which I find fascinating.
We already have a number of "powers," if you will, that we, as individuals and as a species, fail to adequately employ in our daily lives.

Love is one. And not just love in the sense of infatuation, but love as a visceral feeling of closeness and connectedness with another human being, other human beings - all of humanity.

Because we alienate and isolate ourselves from other people, many people can only feel this 'burning comfort' and pleasure, in communion with their imagined god. Never realizing that the source of this 'power' is actually within themselves - and that they are performing a kind of spiritual masturbation.

And society has conditioned many of us to cling so tightly to an imagined 'role,' that most women can tell you, that most men seem to almost recoil at the barest touch of this kind of emotional intimacy.

If you don't know what it is, get a cat or a dog to help open up your emotional awareness. Because, out of all the animals, it's mainly us humans that have lost touch with the ability to communicate through the use of this powerful ability.

And read my article, An Ontological Basis for the Denial of God, to help settle the question in your own mind and heart, concerning the myth that is god.

meh. I am not an atheist I am an meh-ist xD, anyway I like the concept of the force nevertheless as in "It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together. "
Did I mention that I like to play around with ampere/Volt meters? It takes a while for me to do metal arithmetics so I can see the energy that my brain is using for that on the meter ^^
I do not believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was the only shooter.
I do not believe that vaccines are good for you especially the flu vaccine.
I do believe that your government should provide health care.
On the question of supernatural I am not so sure, you have to keep an open mind.
Magic nope
Aliens yes whether they have come here or are walking among us is interesting but not factual.
I also know that animals have a kind of sixth sense, which we humans are lacking.
Considering we live in a physical universe, the notion of "supernatural" is a self-contradicting one. If a phenomenon can be perceived by us, either directly or indirectly, in this universe, then it is physical by definition. That also makes it natural by definition. There's nothing beyond nature. I believe a better label would be that of "paranormal." There are loads of paranormal phenomena in the universe, but that's simply because our notion of normality is deficient. We consider normal what we have an understanding of, which is really what makes acquiring knowledge so important.

We know life to exist on this planet, and that makes its existence a natural phenomenon. As a result, alien life is natural and possible - if not even statistically probable. Whether they have actually visited us or not, that falls within the realm of speculation. As things stand, however, we do not have the knowledge necessary to declare it an impossibility.

Afterlife is a murky notion. Do you mean a state of existence in which awareness and memories are preserved after death? Well, no, I don't believe in anything like it. The closest I can get to accepting the notion of afterlife is the acceptance that procreation means lingering on in the new generations in the form of genetic information subject to inheritance patterns. Life also consistently continues after death at an atomic level, but consciousness doesn't live to tell the tale.
Just a general statement :)
I try not to elevate dictionary entries to the level of carved-in-stone dogma. The nifty thing about natural languages is that they constantly evolve and do so through use. That's why I try to push for the use of "paranormal" as a better term to describe all those phenomena that seem to deviate from our range of normal experiences.
