I think from what she explained that may still be a theist?

Well it goes back to the fundamentals of the god beliefs themselves. Are the gods personal [theism] or impersonal [deism], is the universe god or is the universe part of god and god transcends all of it, is the god conscious, etc.

Theism is definitely still more popular than deism, so odds are you're right, she's probably talking about a type of theism

theism, deism, pantheism, panentheism, pandeism and panendeism, aside from polytheism.




A search on Wiki would explain these efficiently to anyone curious

Ahhh... I'm getting it! I may not agree with things, but I do try to be educated so I can understand. My mother is notorious for spouting crap and being clueless, Like that all Muslims are terrorists :roll: highly irritating. She didn't Even Know how the president is really elected. Gah..

Embarrassing because she put it all on FB for everyone to see. Especially stupid pictures with lies on them. So I would say some pretty harsh things to her about it a few times, she got butthurt and delete the thread after a while...

My mom's thing is if it doesn't apply to her she doesn't care to educate Herself, but then she will talk like she knows... whereas I feel that I can hear someone's beliefs and say "I accept you believe that" but still not ever consider it as an opinion for me. If that makes sense.

Yes, very curious actually! :) It's too late for me to look them up now, but I'll definitely check it out tomorrow. Maybe it'll give me some insight into what I believe.



Thanks :)

My mom just shuts down whenever I hit her bullshit with the truth stick, she just says "Well I don't bash your beliefs, I love you" [implying my atheism, as she is still a nondenominational Christian and never understands a damn thing about me] ... like WTF does that have to do with you helping to spread lies about Muslims or Jews or Obama?



If her post is offensive enough I'll press it on and on until she deletes it because she knows how upsetting I find it. I also once threatened to unfriend her and delete her from my entire life and I was serious. She posted some bullshit about gay marriage and I had had just too much

I'm glad my mom keeps her stupidity private. Though she does spam my feed with stupid pictures. I don't care after the 80th Kitten if it's cute or not, its just annoying LOL.
