Is this not still a belief system? Isn’t it just like any other religious or non-religious belief system which are based on a set of principle truths which lack proof or any direct experience of the facts?

In my view there is no difference between believing in god/s and not believing in god/s when we are void of any evidence for either argument. Both views deny the fact that we simply don’t know for sure.
