Wrong. I never put words in your mouth. Your lack of understanding of that cliché rests on you, not me. I posed a query based on what you state. If my query is incorrect then it is up to you to show how it is not throw a rock and play victim. You're not a victim but of your own unintelligent mind attempting to think you're right because you say you are.
Why wont you support this? Is what I am asking.
Because it's nonsensical. A theist creates the religion around the god they also create. It's irrelevant whether (hypothetically) that god existed before their religion, they recreated it to suit their religion. Which is why I inserted "deists" whose whole "religion" is "god".
You're saying that theists have no beliefs (the same as atheists) because they don't know god. I am saying, by definition, they do have beliefs based on the fact they know their god that they worship around their religion.
Definition of theist/m
in the existence of a god or gods, esp. belief
in one god as creator of the universe, intervening in it and sustaining a personal relation to his creatures."
Atheist/m is defined as
: "disbelief or lack of belief
in the existence of God or gods."
They are different. You're saying they're the same because in YOUR OPINION theists can't know what is defined as God
: "the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being." based on the fact
it's a higher being; they can't know something they are beneath, or not at the same level. But theists create the religion, create the god, therefore they do know their god.
And atheists believe
they are fictional. So, you can't equate the two (a/theism) as being the same. Theists aren't atheists just because atheists don't believe in the god/s. Atheists aren't theists because theism is dictated by canon and a godhead.
We can build a path for humanity out of belief. Isn't that what you want?
