In my case it would not be Problems with being an Atheist (or Evolutionist) but rather problems with being a theist (or creationist).
I have no problems being an Atheist & Evolutionist whereas I had many when I was a theist/creationist, its called evidence.

Evidence is not a problem. This is like saying that gravity was a problem before Newton proposed the idea. We weren't floating around before Newton came along.
Right evidence is not the problem, lack of evidence was.

Since Evolution is only ~90% correct it should be thrown out and replaced by Creation which has even a lower % of correctness. W T Young, 2008

Re: Atheism IS a belief
Believing in a god and the supernatural is the default position.
Only when one has been indoctrinated into such a belief. No one is born knowing anything about life, the environment, the universe or any beings, supernatural or not. The default position is nothing.
