This is some thing I wish more people would realize.

Imagine I produce an envelope and tell you God is inside it. You can believe it, disbelieve it, or reserve judgement until you open the envelope. You may hold any of the three positions, even if the envelope is never opened. If you disbelieve God is in the envelope because you don't believe God is a possible or factual being, you are an atheist by belief. If you reserve judgment, you're basically an agnostic whose mind could conceivably be changed, even if you think it's extremely unlikely the required evidence is possible and can't even imagine what it would be (probably an undeniable miracle).
Setting agnosticism aside and considering atheist, it's still 'incongruous, inaccurate, or dishonest' to both draw a conclusion and then maintain that you don't believe it.
Schrodinger's envelope. God both exists and does not exist in the envelope... until it's opened :)
