A theist is one who believes in a diety. This is not to be confused with a polytheist who believes in multiple dieties, an agnostic who neither supports nor rejects the idea of a supreme diety, or an athiest who believes in no dieties. Regarding Digital Shadow who blatantly attacked theism with the pre-concieved notion that the definition of the word is a direct reference to Christianity, and automatically assumed that science has DISPROVED theism, no evidence supports your claims.
Theist: I believe in a supreme diety.
Polytheist: I believe in multiple dieties.
Agnostic: I am indifferent to the idea of one or more dieties.
Atheist: I do not believe in a diety.
Unreasonable Atheist: I often put down theists, and try to use science to my advantage although it doesn't have sufficient evidence against most religions. I also fail to recognize that science cannot PROVE anything, only give reasonably reliable laws. It only takes one fact to end an entire theory/law.

n.a believer in a deity in human form with human prejudices that monitors ones' life events and aspirations and can influence the outcome of events in that persons life depending on the intensity of the relationship with the deity determined by the compliance with edicts of society and the priesthood. Adherents include both monotheists and polytheists, the "Trinity" was invented to bridge these differences.
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.

The atheist equivalent of the word "heretic".

Frequently used as an insult by internet atheists who, lacking a large enough penis, must find other ways to appear adequate.
Person 1: Hello, I am a Hindu/Jew/Christian/etc... person.
Person 1: Actually, I happen to be a published physics professor, so I think science is pretty good.
Person 1: Actually, QM doesn't say that at all. Perhaps you should actually learn what you're talking about before you act like a moron on the internet.
