Atheists are capable of living peaceful lives, loving others, doing good deeds, and providing a positive existence in the world--they just don't believe in the supernatural being of a god.

Atheists do not believe in a supreme being, nor do they worship anyone or anything. Satan is God's counterpart, so I like post #7 which would make that belief illogical. Don't forget Agnostics, too, though. They believe that someone or something supreme is out there, they just aren't converted to one idea or another. A friend of mine who is Agnostic said he would just decide after he dies and finds out first hand what's waiting on the other side. :)

I heard one man say that an atheist is someone who is mad at God, thus choosing to not believe in the supernatural. Perhaps an atheist prayed a prayer that went unanswered or was not answered in a way that one desires. This is one man's take on atheism. I agree with the above post in that if an atheist does not believe in god, then it would be illogical for him to believe in Satan.

Atheists do not believe in the existence of God, so it would be illogical for them to believe in Satan.

The majority of atheists prefer to think that the world runs the way it does strictly because of the laws of physics and the results of personal choices. Keep in mind that the concepts of "good" and "evil" are strictly value judgements; what one person views as evil may not seem evil to someone else.

Atheism is not the same thing as worshipping Satan.  As Post #2 says, atheism is about disbelief, not belief.  An atheist doesn't believe in Satan, much less worship him.  Neither does an atheist belief in worshipping the pagan spirits.  Atheists simply do not worship anything because they do not believe in supernatural beings.
