As the content of the theological concepts, these gods are part of the theistic ideology.
So, gods exist in the realm of theistic ideology, in other words, gods are ideological entities too, or ideologies themselves. So, when you atheists are extremely angry with the gods of the theistic religions, you actually are angry toward ideological concepts humans have made! It is very weird to see that almost atheists unconsciously view themselves as being at deadly war against actual divine beings living in the sky. In atheism, gods-ideologies have been replaced by non-gods ideologies.
So, I find myself justified if I say that atheism has gods too, in the sense that atheism too have elevated ideological values that are of the same level with elevated ideological values of theism. What matters the most in every ideology is that each has the highest value , meaning, has god. Whether the gods of any ideologies are metaphorical or factual, is dependent on the mind of the people who adhere to these gods.

No ideological systems in this world do have no gods. In capitalism, the god being worshiped is money, capital and free market. In Americanism as a civil religion the god being honored and glorified is the state, the USA constitution and the people of America.

In democracy, its god is the voice of the people and the positive laws. In liberalism, god is secularity and free speech and free mind. In theism, god is the personal entity imagined to live in heaven. Thus, what is the god in atheism? Those are, minimally, the gods of atheism, in my opinion. It is a lack of belief and nothing more.
Where is the position of mine? I take the agnostic position. Agnostic means that we presently cannot know precisely whether the transcendent dimensions exist or not. Carl Sagan is clearly an agnostic, as the quotation from his book above indicates. We shall move beyond the positivism of Stephen Hawking where only what can be tested and proved is true, to the models of transcendence in today's physics.
Physicist Brian Greene, in his book The Elegant Universe , says that one or more of these extra-dimensions that is, 26 minus 4 dimensions may well be comparatively large even infinite. We should wait until our sciences advance to be able to describe empirically those realms. In this meaning, I am agnostic. The agnostic position is always science-based. As agnostic I, therefore, do hope that theism and atheism could in the present cooperate to build together the peaceful world we together more than seven billion people inhabit now.
Eliminate now hatred and rage directed to one another forever!
