Prediction was:
hotshoe wrote:So we can safely suggest that among the other things Maryann refuses to admit into her worldview, she won't admit a simple wikipedia entry:

wiki wrote:Atheism, in a broad sense, is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities.[1] In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[2] Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist.[3] Atheism is contrasted with theism,[4] which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.[5][6]

Maryann didn't let me down. Hooray, and thank you to Maryann for making my prediction come true:

Maryann wrote:I'm going to agree to disagree on the athiest (belief or not belief) / faith (always blind or just belief lacking certainty) aspects of the discussion ...

God forbid she might agree with the neutral wiki position. :nono:

Sure, we'll agree to disagree; we're in accordance with the actual usage and we'll disagree with Maryann and her ilk when they insist on using the terms wrongly. :lol:
