Atheism embraces science because if it didn't then what would be it's rational excuse for existing? Atheism says no to God, which also is no to Islam, The Catholic Church, and anything associated with either of those beliefs, and any other religious nonsense. God merely isn't on "it's" own. God is associated with everything according to most of the people on this planet. Whether they be Catholic, or Shiite many of them reject "science" to a certain extent (that varies obviously on that person). Many Christians believe that the Earth is only 60,000 yrs old. As an Atheists I reject that notion because it has no real science behind it. People who don't accept God in to their lives are called Atheists, and they believe in Atheism. Ooops I said it again.
