You can only consider other alternatives because of God. You act as though there is no origin of causes. It is true that there is belief, and non belief. They are opposing. A theist believes in God, an atheist doesn’t believe in God. Simple, From the “does not believe in God” camp. From that perspective, God is already deemed unnecessary, as in, “there is no God”. All you can achieve is more embellishments to satisfy your world view. You can never see it from the opposing world view, until you give up your “there is no God” thinking. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. It is not the opposite of knowledge. Knowledge and truth are synonymous.
