    If I'm an anarchist, it means I'm against all governments, it doesn't mean I'm an archist when it comes to republicanism but an anarchist when it fascism, it means I believe in NO GOVERNMENT.

    If I'm apolitical, it means I'm NOT political, not I'm political when it comes to some countries and not to others.

    If you're an Atheist, it means A-THEOS ... NO GOD(S), none, 0 zilch. Look it up. It means you believe there ARE NO GODS.

    If you're Agnostic, it means you are without knowledge, when it comes to Gods ... you DON'T KNOW, you don't disbelieve .... you don't believe.

    If you're a Theist, you believe there IS at least 1 God.

    You either have to change theist to an statement of knowledge or atheist to a statement of belief to get your definitions to match.

    It's also pointless trying to include Buddhists in any 'coalition of the faithful against the atheistic hordes'* given that it's perfectly possible to be a deist, theist or an atheist and still be a Buddhist.

    *I'm not saying that's what you were doing, I'm exaggerating a little for rhetorical purposes.
    Point? Not sure there is a large one. Mostly just surprising to me.

    And yes, you're right concerning a Buddhist, which is actually something I like about that ideology.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Both theist and atheist are claims of knowledge/belief .... the 2 are not mutually exclusive,

    Agnostic is witholding belief since you claim knowledge cannot be had on the matter as of now, or you don't have access to enough knowledge to take a stand.

    But this thing where you're saying "you're an atheist about other Gods" is as rediculous as saying "your asexual but only for certain people."

    Asexual can also mean without sexual organs and reproduction without conjoining of male + female gametes.

    And yes, you could be an anarchist when it comes to a preference over certain other political systems. Too, you could be apolitical to Bahrain, but political in the USA's matters.

    And no, atheism is a lack of belief in a god. You may adopt that silly Christian one, but you're still an atheist when it comes to the rest of them.

    I'm not sure why you keep adding agnostic to the list, I'm not going to argue with you on that one.

    No one uses those terms that way, when someone says you're apolitical it means your not interested in politics period, when someone says so and so is Asexual, it means he or she isn't interested in sex PERIOD.

    Thats what the A-Prefix is ... it means No, so NoGod(s) means NO GOD, sure what your doing with the atheist to other gods is a nice word trick but it's simply misusing the termanology.

    I add agnostic to the list because that is how the word is used in common language.

    THe agnostic doesn't believe the evidence is there either way, that's why he with holds judgement.


    The term "christian god" could put a monkey wrench into the whole concept....
