If God really does not exist for atheists, why do they allow themselves to be called in a term that ascribes the word ‘God’?
atheos: a- ‘without’ + ‘theos’ god
They will surely oppose this but yes, they need the word ‘theos’ in order to have a name; they benefit from Theism. They can’t just leave the term ‘theos’ to theists. They need it to support their “existence.”
Without God, atheists won’t exist. So if there is no God, there should never also be atheists.
But truth still remains: There are atheists. And that will automatically mean…
Theists can live without atheists, but atheists can’t survive without theists.
