The Atheologist

Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don’t Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions by using logical assumptions, interviews with people of all faiths and really, really good research. The Atheologist wants to know.

    The Atheologist's Definitions of Some Important Words

    Theism - the belief in a god or gods
    Atheism - the absence of the belief in a god or gods
    Agnosticism - the belief that one cannot ever know positively whether or not supernatural phenomena, especially gods, exist
    Deism - belief in a God who created the world but has since remained indifferent to it
    Apostate - one who renounces and criticizes or opposes their former religion
    Dogma - a system of principles or tenets, as of a church
    Bible - the sacred book of Christianity, (the Atheologist uses the King James version for all his quotes and research)
    Koran or Qur'an - the sacred text of Islam
    Faith - belief that is not based on proof
    Secular - not relating to religion or to a religious body
    God - the supernatural being conceived as the perfect and omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe; the object of worship in monotheistic religions
    Heathen - one who does not acknowledge your God; ie, we are all heathens
    Infidel - one who doubts or rejects a particular doctrine, system, or principle: ie, we are all infidels
    Liberal - someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad; if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal." - John F. Kennedy
    Blood Count - Dracula
    Terrorist - someone who engages in acts or an act of terrorism
    Christian Terrorist- someone who terrorizes Christians*
    Muslim Terrorist - a dedicated follower of Islam, who terrorizes others, (very often Christians)*
    Muslipede - the sudden headlong rush of Muslims, often causing high numbers of injuries and deaths

    *So we can see from these definitions that a Christian terrorist does not necessarily have to be a Muslim, but a Muslim terrorist is always one.

    I don't know that the definition of Faith on this page is 100% correct...

    I belive that God is prove-able and therefore you would be able to say that I don't need faith if that is true.

    I have faith AND I have proof. So how do you redefine that definition?

    I did not post this to refute athiesm or anything like that... I was linked to a post about birth certificates for born again folks like me and found your website quite interesting and infromative for what you believe. It is refreshing to see an intellectual side where bashing the religions of the world is not the primary focus.

    It seems that what you believe and what I believe are two different things. If you believe in God, you can be sure there is a right and a wrong... but if you don't believe in God, there is only opinion and speculation... which means both us could be right.

    And if both of us could be right, we then have a problem with basic math... 1 plus 1 does not equal 1.

    So, therefore there has to be a God because the difference between right and wrong are nullified if there is no God... and I think anyone that has ever watched a horror film can see the difference between good and evil... they exist. If there is only opinion, then the most evil person in the would could thing they are doing good and would be justified by a court of law.

    I wasn't going to go there but, when the spirit leads, a faithful one must follow.

    In an athiestic worldview, Logic is a viable solution, right?

    I was athiest for many years... or so I thought... then I educated myself on religions and found some interesting facts I could not ignore.

    Once again no "really, really good research".
