my religion

I found this comic strip at while trying to forget the approaching madness season ie. exams.

So it's got me thinking. Did I get into another religion when trying to get out of believing any religion at all? So like any confused person, I turned to the internet to help me and I found this:

“Theism” is defined as the “belief in a god or gods.” The term “theism” is sometimes used to designate the belief in a particular kind of god—the personal god of monotheism—but as used throughout this book, “theism” signifies the belief in any god or number of gods. The prefix “a” means “without,” so the term “a-theism” literally means “without theism,” or without belief in a god or gods. Atheism, therefore, is the absence of theistic belief. One who does not believe in the existence of a god or supernatural being is properly designated as an atheist.

Atheism is sometimes defined as “the belief that there is no God of any kind,”[1] or the claim that a god cannot exist. While these are categories of atheism, they do not exhaust the meaning of atheism—and they are somewhat misleading with respect to the basic nature of atheism. Atheism, in its basic form, is not a belief: it is the absence of belief. An atheist is not primarily a person who believes that a god does not exist; rather, he does not believe in the existence of a god.

[1] John Hick, Philosophy of Religion (Englewood Cliffs: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1963), p. 4.

So did that excerp from Atheism - A case against God by George H. Smith confuse you? It took me a while to understand that 2 paragraphs. Apparently, there's a difference between "believing that a god doesn't exist" and "not believing in the existence of a god".
In the end, I didn't get myself into another religion, thank god for that, I've gotta stop that habit of mine
