Now this is just how I feel about it, I'm not trying to say I'm right, and am very open to debate
I believe entirely in Science, and therefore find the possibility of a "God" or "Gods" highly unlikely (especially that of an intervening "God"), and I can only assume almost all other atheists do not believe in "God/s" because of scientific reason. But therefore, if there was proven
to be a creator "God" I would quite happily (though I'd be rather embarrassed!) accept this as fact, as there would be no point in denying the obvious truth, as would almost all atheists.
From a religious perspective, the whole point of religion is that it is based on faith
and not fact, hence, once it becomes fact, it can therefore no longer be religion. Sure, people could still "worship" this creator, whichever form they/it be in, but it would be a bit like worshipping a wall. Therefore, atheism would become the undeniable default.
This scenario is based upon the discovery simply of a creator though, and not an intervening "God", in this case, I still feel religion would become obsolete though. Again, many people may "worship" this God, but again, due to faith no longer being necessary, why is it religion?
It is just like asking someone for a favour (if s/he/it answers prayer) etc.
Therefore, atheism would again become the default.
Sorry if this isn't very well written, I don't know why I'm doing it at 4:30am
