Description: "Technically, 1 can call you an atheist, even if you don't use that word as a label. An atheist is a person who is not a theist (theist = someone who believes in a god or gods) , for whatever reason. If you can't answer the question, 'Do you have a belief in a god' with a Yes (no matter how 'god' is defined) , then you are by definition (if not by selfidentification) an atheist.""Agnosticism addresses knowledge; atheism addresses belief," [Dan] writes. "The atheist says, ? don't have a belief that God exists.' The agnostic says, ? don 't have knowledge that God exists. ' You can say both things at the same time. Some agnostics are atheistic and some are theistic."The Dutch and Italian Fishes, respectively, translate "no interest" as "geen rente" and "nessun interesse." (Now I know you want to know about Puccini's "nessun dorma," which means "no one sleeps.")
