Theists are Majority Atheist Already

Every single person on planet earth is an atheist. Each and every one of us deny the probability of one or more gods that others have professed.

There are two basic divisions: Theists and Atheists.

  • Theists profess one or more gods and deny all others
  • Atheists profess no gods, denying all

The difference between a monotheist and an atheist is one god.

Yep - A monotheist by definition stands as an atheist in regard to every other belief system's gods.

A polytheist on the other hand could contend that they are not atheist at all. I'm thinking specifically about the pre-Constantine Romans here who were very inclusive.
