Proposed nicknames for "atheism"

I know some atheists don’t like the word atheism, so I thought I’d come up with some new terms for the same philosophy. Tell me what you think! :slight_smile:

Naturalism

Sciencism

Humanism

Worldlism

Stuffism

Philosophism

Rationalism

Tangentism

Don,t know how to say this but you can call a pig a cow but it is still a pig.
And B4 any one gets upset I,m not calling any one a pig.PEACE to all

Atheism works just fine.

:heaven: :harp:

None of these things you’ve suggested can necessarily be synonomous with atheism, or antithetical to the believe in some kind of deity.

They may not be compatible with Christianity, but that’s a different issue.

Atheism is a fine name for atheism. I suspect any reluctance on the part of atheists to embrace it comes from worrying that theists will make snap judgments.

(Bill’s right…can’t milk a pig :D)

I’m quite sure “Humanism” is already taken Eucharisted (I kind of hope “atheist” is only a transitional name :))
