1.
n. a religion or an adherent to the belief in a spirit god as opposed to the Deists "clockmaker" god (made the world wound it up and is sitting back watching it unwind), the Theist god, a "human" god who watches and interfers when it feels like it. The Geists god is the spirit or force that organized the world and causes it to run.
I don't belive in God. So you're an atheist! Maybe some force, like magnetism, electricity, or gravity created the world and maybe is present ... Oh! So you're a Geist.

My theistic god, when I was younger, was Santa then along came the Tooth Fairy, that Grampa told me about. I stole gramps dentures from the glass beside his bed and left him 32 quarters, it doesn't get any better than that.
