In review of the replies - many of them attack God or religion rather than the defend the rather humorous viewpoint of the absurdity of atheism (a couple of the postings were agnostic - kudos for your honesty).

Regardless, rather than knock God or religion. The invitation to oppose the the definition is open for replies.
(it takes a huge leap of faith imo - but go for it and do your best).
Please show evidence -- any evidence, any objective proof whatsoever -- of the existance of a deity or deities. Until you do this, there will be no further discussion or reaction to your trolling attempts.

tell a lie often and loud enough and it eventually becomes 'truth'.

meanwhile, those who fail to appreciate the meaning of the word 'theism' (as in atheism) even in threads they start, probably still labour under the 'faith' that iraq has weapons of mass destruction (as per Dubya surmon).

thinking just ain't for everyone!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

This "definition" exactly applies to the religious as they believe in the magic man (woman maybe ? why not ?) up in the sky who created the heavens and the earth by some mysterious means. The religious people, however, do not question or go into much detail how their god did that. It is very sad indeed that the religious/superstitious people would rather have mystical answers, concerning the existence of the universe, which are wrong, instead of suspending judgment until the evidence proves otherwise.

So the Connecticut thread doesn't get derailed into a gun control debate, do it here.
