The word 'Atheist' simply means someone whom is not a theist
. The word is not to be confused with the word 'Antitheist'
(someone whom belive there is no god
The word is a combiation of the word 'Theist
' (beliver in a god
) and the greek prefix 'A' meaning 'not' or 'without'.
= Someone whom belives in a god
= Not a theist
= Someone that belives there is no god
I'm an agnostic atheist, and will lack a beleif in any god
until they are scientifically proven with imperical evidence.
