Rejecting the the biblical god(s) is one thing, to say there never was any god or super power being anywhere is hard to deny for any thinking being.
Do you mean "hard to accept for any thinking being?" I used to have trouble with the concept of atheist, because I was under the impression that it meant "I believe there is not a god" rather than "a lack of belief in god." I think agnostic is an acceptable term, too, and quite reasonable, though I have trouble accepting the idea that "We cannot know" though little trouble with the idea "I don't know."
