Something of Azeroth we don't often see, or at least pay attention to, are the lay-folk, the general citizens of the world that aren't adventuring around and slaying gods and demons on a daily to weekly basis. In a world without modern media coverage, can you expect every single one of them to be aware of all the happenings around Azeroth, around their own nation, or even around their own province? For these people that don't witness divine acts and unholy deeds in their day to day lives, I would say atheism is a possibility. If something has no perceived influence on one's life, what's to say it even exists?I would venture to say every single citizen of Azeroth has been touched by the effects of war, of the struggles of mortals, but I think a very large percentage of that citizenry has never witnessed the wonders and horrors we as adventures now consider commonplace.

Pretty much what I was going to say, an adventuring type that has been involved with the horrors of Icecrown Citadel would probably be unable to deny the existence of gods or higher beings.A basic farmer in the arathi highlands who has only seen war and death while trying to scrape a living could quite conceivably dismiss the notion as nonsense as they might have not seen much divinity from their supposed gods.

Well, citizens of stormwind just have to look at the mage district, ogrimmar their king, darkshire just have to look around them, and westfall are about to get a nasty surprise.
