Glossary - Atheist
An atheist is characterized by atheism, which is the "absence of belief in deities." The letter "a" from the word "atheist" is a prefix meaning "without" or "not," thus "atheist" means "not theist." The word "atheist" originated from the Ancient Greek word " ἄθεος " (or "átheos") which means "godless" (according to Google Translate, 2008-2012 CE) or, more generally, "without a deity."
From the first moment of existence, every member of every species is logically classified as an atheist because conceptualization of a deity is required before any belief in one is possible.
An acronym has been suggested that spells A.T.H.E.I.S.T., as follows: A Thoughtful, Honest, Ethical, Intelligent, Skeptical Thinker.
