    Not in a scientific discussion, of course. I agree with you on that. Religion and science are mutually exclusive territories. But occasionally, one does trespass a little on the fringes of the other, and those rare interactions can be fascinating.

    I concur.

    Theism in the broadest sense is the belief in at least one deity.[1][2] In a more specific sense, theism refers to a particular doctrine concerning the nature of God and his relationship to the universe.[3]

    The prefix "a" means "not" or "without". Thus, someone without theistic beliefs is an atheist. Sorry to burst your bubble.
    You bursted nothing.
    I do not believe in atheists. They do not exist amongst humans.

    I like this one:

    Numbers 24:8 - God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

    Again, you cannot factually support your claim. It will simply remain an opinion.

    That is your opinion, but you might as well say the moon doesn't exist. There are people that do not believe in ANY god or gods, that by it's definition is atheist.

    Triad, you are an atheist in regards to Zeus, Apollo, Krishna, Thor, etc... I've just gone one god further.

    Oh and you can prove you don't believe in anything right..no in fact you will inevitably fall into declaring something like science to in effect be your belief system.

    IOW you like everyone else believes in Something that in the end you cannot define and is basically based on ..drum roll..faith.

    iow not an atheist..an agnostic.


    BTW "a deity"??..what makes something a deity.
    Can the Sun be a deity??



    I don't believe in Atheists.
