Just a quick question here, if theism is the belief in organised religion, and deism is the belief in a God of some form, why is atheism not adeism? I get that many atheists are opposed to organised religion, but surely under this definition people who believe in God but reject religion are atheist too? Probably just semantics, or I've got the wrong end of the stick.

Theism is the belief in a god or deity so one can be religious and not believe in a god, i am atheist but also a Buddhist.

that's an interesting quandry, but atheists are defined as those who do not believe in a god or gods. I guess they weren't talking the non-religious who believe in a god or gods into account when they made their word for the opposite view.
