Calling someone a theist is useful because it points to certain beliefs the person holds to be true, and certain positions they might take. Atheists are simply people who are sceptical and unconvinced by those claims. Why do we need to have a whole new term for this? Seems unnecessary and pointless to me, at least in this day and age.
In the way that the usual suspects get the very basic definition wrong, time and time again? Yeah, I guess it is.Originally Posted by Hamster
