An atheist is simply someone who lacks theism, i.e., religious belief (no gods). I am also a naturalist in that I lack belief in anything supernatural (no demons, fairies, spirits, souls, or angels) and a rationalist in that I support the methods of science (no homeopathy because it rests on a nonsensical belief long disproved.
Religion, supernaturalism, and pseudoscience, such as alchemy, phrenology, homeopathy, and chiropractic are dangerous in the same way that drugs and alcohol are dangerous. You can sit and home and smoke weed, snort coke, or drink Scotch all you want. If you can do it in moderation, it can make life more pleasant. You can get together with friends and enjoy these activities. But when you're drunk or stoned and get in your car and start banging into other cars or pedestrians because your drug of choice has deluded you into thinking you're a great driver, you're a danger to the rest of us. If you continue spilling carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, oil into the sea, and toxic chemicals into aquifers because despite all scientific evidence you think that some supernatural being is going to fix everything because he loves you, then you are a very grave danger to the rest of us. Curtailing the freedoms of people or harming human beings and the environment we share in order to keep some supernatural being from getting angry is the result of a delusion.
