Have you read or heard about the Raelians? This is a religion, and atheistic religion. They don’t believe in gods (aliens created us) but still have a book that comes from beyond the stars that explains their beliefs (aliens need an embassy for example) as well as a messenger (known as prophets in other religious circles).
Is such a movement an accurate description of reality? Are there any facts to support any of their claims? Simple answer: No. Lets say we take out the beliefs that have no evidence for them. What do we end up with? Not raelianism. Maybe just plain atheism which is not a belief but a lack of such.
Lets say we take out the beliefs that have no evidence in Hinduism. What do we end up with?

On Hinduims and religious nonsense…

"The concept of a "power" that is held to lie behind nature and that keeps everything in balance became a natural forerunner to the idea of Dharma. The idea of rta laid the cornerstone of dharma’s implicit attribution to the “ultimate reality” of the surrounding universe”.

Dharma upholds both this-worldly and other-worldly affairs. (Mbh 12.110.11)

Any proof? No? Use the force Luke….

Most Hindus believe that the spirit or soul — the true “self” of every person, called the ātman — is eternal.

Just like christians, muslims and other myth based religions.

The schools of Vedanta and Nyaya states that karma itself proves the existence of God .

Really?

Ok so I have just started following you and I am learning a lot already. (thanks!) I am not sure I understand this whole "theism" thing. I know what atheism is, but what exactly is the difference?

Theism = Belief in a god (or gods).
Atheism = Lack of belief in a god (or gods).

For example, both catholics and hindus are theists. The difference is that they believe in different gods.

The following quote is really apropos:

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
