Your Definition of Atheism is Counterproductive

Remember when you could use the word “Atheism” and everyone knew what it meant? Remember the days when a man could declare himself an atheist and everyone knew what he was trying to say? Thanks to the efforts of social media, those days are now gone.

Here’s a little insight into one of the many reasons why I reject the social media treatment of the word “Atheism.”

And as a serious question to everyone who is going to take me to task for wanting to define atheist to mean “atheist,” just fill in this blank for me: A person who’s position is, “God does not exist” is called a______________.
Because as of right now, I’ve not gotten a word that means that from all of my friends on social media. Which is why I still use the word Atheist.
Thanks!
