    Do atheist believe in souls

    I don't believe in god but do believe in ghosts and souls and reincarnation. Is that weird? Does that still define me as an atheist?I hope there is reincarnations cause I want to be born rich in next life

    No, you're not an atheist then.
    Atheists don't believe in the superficial. It is all simple and set and done for us.

    Atheists don't believe in anything that isn't backed by reason or science, philosophy be damned. That's the fundamental reason why man people aren't atheist, because they are capable of being philosophers.

    Atheism is the disbelief in a god or gods. You're an Atheist if you don't believe in any form of a god.
    I don't believe in souls or anything in that sense; it doesn't make much sense for any Atheist to believe in something like that, but it doesn't make you not an Atheist.

    Souls or anything in that sense is a deity. Atheists do not believe in anything that is divine. To believe in what op stated would make you the opposite.

    It depends on how a person would think of a soul and how it "works". Different people who believe in them think about them in completely different ways.
    Atheism is the lack of belief in a God (or divine creator), believing in ghosts, spirits and souls while having a lack of belief in a God would make you an Atheist.

    That would probably make you a spiritualist, a thanatist or worst case scenario theosphical. Not an atheist.

    Spiritualism believes in some form of a God.
    I'm pretty sure Thanatism holds the belief that the soul dies when the body dies, it's not a religion or a set of beliefs about gods (belief or lack of belief).
    I can't find too much on Theosophy, but I've looked into it a little, and I don't think it suits this at all.

    In my opinion, Eternity is an Atheist from the information he's given.

    I think you are an atheist, the definition of an atheist is someone who does not believe in a god or gods.

    It just means non religious, I guess most of them aren't spiritual either, apparently even Buddhists are technically atheists, just not hardcore Richard Dawkins atheists.
