Atheism is not an affirmative belief that there is no Divine nor does it answer any other question about what a person believes. It is simply a rejection of the assertion that there are Gods. Atheism is too often defined incorrectly as a belief system. To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of the Divine; it is a lack of belief in Gods and the Divine.
Older dictionaries define atheism as “a belief that there is no God.” Clearly, theistic influence taints these definitions. The fact that dictionaries define Atheism as “there is no God” betrays the (mono)theistic influence. Without the (mono)theistic influence, the definition would at least read “there are no Gods.”
