    No that is an adjustment for clarification, thus proving my point that definitions need to be established in the original premise.

    And yet again you edit after the quote!

    Sure I am talking about a worthless meaningless concept, why should I not change my view? It is not as if it means anything. I used to support West Ham, now I do not bother, so what?

    and that was quite soundly refuted.

    Atheism continues to mean............lack of belief in a god or gods.

    I meet the definition exactly. I lack belief, I am an atheist.

    Where does the word atheist/atheism originate from?
    The words "atheism" and "atheist" originated from the Ancient Greek word "ἄθεος" 4 ("átheos") meaning "without deities" 21 without any direct or implied anti-theistic (or anti-religious) connotation 31, for it was (and still is) impartial in its initially intended use -- philosophical atheist thought is also believed by some scholars to have begun in Asia and Europe as early as 600 BCE.
