|Atheism is the shadow or dark side of the highest perception
of God. Every formula we frame about God, though always true as a
symbol, becomes false when we accept it as a sufficient formula.
The Atheist and Agnostic come to remind us of our error.
Thoughts and Aphorisms, Bhakti, 538
Atheism means the denial of an external God or any sort of higher creative power. Although usually associated with Materialism, it doesn't have to mean the same. For example, Eastern philosophies such as Samkhya and Buddhism refer to spiritual realities, but not of a God or "Creator". But generally, Atheism and Materialism are synonymous. Quite a few intelligent people, disgusted by the intellectual absurdities and the moral hypocrisy of the various religions, take refuge in Atheism
