Atheist: one who has no belief in a god or gods.
Christian: Anyone who identifies as such, or one who practices the religion of Christianity.

though i agree .... kind of a weak def. of 'Christian', no?

just claiming to be..


Sure, the atheist one too, perhaps, but those are the defs we seem to have agreed upon.

Reading Bart Ehrman last night:

I don't know if there is a God. I don't call myself an atheist, because to declare affirmatively that there is no God (the declaration of atheists) takes far more knowledge (and chutzpah) than I have.
