Atheism, in its broadest sense, is the absence of belief in the existence of deities. A narrower definition includes only those who believe that deities do not exist, and excludes those who hold no position on the question (see agnostics and other non-theists). In other words, an “atheist” can be defined as either:
- A person who does not believe that at least one god exists; or
- A person who has a positive belief that no god or gods exist.
