    Theism is the state reached by people abused by their parents who need an alternative authority figure. It is a state which people adopt because they are scared of dying, and is essentially a cowardly one. Without this state to keep them in check, theists would rape and murder without a moment's hesitation. All theists are really atheists in denial, and secretly want atheists to convince them that no God exists. Theism is a bleak and pitiless existence, as its followers are unable to discern good from bad without reference to their God, and only look forward to the day when they can exalt in the eternal torment of others.

    How am I doing?

    Nice use of irony. Interesting to see how it plays (and if it is recognized) . . .

    vistesd, I had hoped you would contribute your understanding of theism to this conversation.

    My understanding of theism is that it is the belief in one or more supernatural deities.

    Simples. Next question?

    Based on the dozens and dozens of posts to "One Christian's understanding of atheism..."
    I hoped a few more than two articulate atheists were still contributing to this forum.

    Theism is the term for the belief in one or more deities [gods].

    The gods believed in, and why, and the associated beliefs that go with it are hugely diverse.
