How can Atheist have a Pagan religion, if they don't believe in gods?

it could be similar to atheistic satanism: the gods are seen more as emblems of human virtues rather than actual existing beings

Thanks. As an Atheist, I found that little confusing.

Atheistic pagan is an oxymoron to me.

I'm an agnostic atheistic pagan c: you can't really prove or disprove any gods, god or goddess, however, I tend to not believe such things for reasons I couldn't really explain properly.

I think it's more of they worship nature since nature is well... natural and everywhere.

I refer myself a Non-Deist Pagan. I believe in Spirits that represent themselves in this universe through Life but I do not believe in any Deities.

Term that could somehow suits me, I'm technically atheist, but see gods as metaphors/symbols.
As an European, paganism is as well an identity factor : base of culture before Christian invasion and the ethnocide they comitted. Pagan is somehow my identity, while atheist is my "belief", spiritual position.

"Paganism ... is a blanket term typically used to refer to religious traditions which are polytheistic or indigenous." - Wikipedia
...how does atheistic paganism work? @.@

Wikipedia (or popular-masses-pedia) doesn't use the definitive/academic, Oxford English Dictionary, definition anymore, which historically (apart from indicating being rural/wild) was about not being in religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam,) but not necessarily being in others: polytheists, agnostics, atheists were all pagans/heathens to be threateningly converted, and/or enslaved, and/or genocided. Wikipedia doesn't use the academic definition, and academics don't use it because of its historical original religious meaning as a slur, rather than names of the various non-Abrahamic views themselves.

Well, for a while I considered myself an atheistic pagan - it was more of keeping the rituals and celebrations and all that but taking the gods out of it... it was a bit odd, more about symbolism than worshipping gods, at least for me...

pagans don't exactly "worship" gods. Gods function more as.. role models. The only one we worship is mother nature. :)

It depends on which pagan you ask. I've talked with several pagans who literally worship gods, and those who worship mother nature as you said. :)

Oh! That sounds really interesting. I've always liked that part of Paganism but the whole gods thing through me off. Maybe I'll try that.

That's one of the things I really liked about Paganism, was that really people just sort of go off on their own paths :D

Ahh. Sort of like the "atheist Jews" that we have in some cases; they don't really believe in God (either atheists or agnostic atheists) but they still keep with all of the Jewish traditions. That makes sense, and although it's a bit strange to follow traditions that neither run in your family nor your actual religion (since you didn't really believe in the deities), but I could understand that. I've always loved Rome, and me and my Latin buddies celebrate some of the old Roman holidays, though not quite to such an extent that we call ourselves Roman pagans X)

Yeah, I think that would be a fair comparison to make. I have a fascination with different gods from different religions - of course I don't believe in them, but they still make for pretty interesting stories and traditions! On that note, I think I might celebrate Saturnalia this year, haha. Well, minus the sacrifice bit, and I don't own any slaves so that part's out, haha

Indeed! Although I don't think you you can have a proper celebration without an animal sacrifice ;)
