The A/Theism Triangle

The divide between atheists and theists, is most likely shaped like a triangle. The huge looming difference at the bottom being that one side believes in a deity, the other side doesn't. This of course, is the definition of the words, and these definitions, clearly demonstrate the diametric opposition found in this great debate. The base of the triangle is the difference, and is connected to the sides because arguments often ensue (as well as friendship, I positively add). The tip of the triangle is the common factor, because, unbelievably perhaps, there is indeed a common factor. Humanity. We are all human beings. Scuttling, prancing, little, but ever so wonderful human beings. 

If you’re wondering why I chose red, it’s because red is the symbol of passion, love, anger, romance, blood, evil, guilt, sin, courage, sacrifice, danger, loyalty, courage, sex, heroism… Or maybe I just like the colour red, you decide. 


  1. Thanks for this - I find this extremely helpful and can see were it allows for common ground. Of course as a theist I would say it matters not whether we believe in God. What truly matters is whether God believes in us :-)

    1. You're welcome. I think your last sentence sums it up beautifully.

  2. Religion is disproportionately gay and therefore irrelevant. Especially the clergy.
