Well, a nice add to the list but still...
Deism is a belief and in the definition i made i didn't mention any beliefs.
Atheism is a lifestyle. It includes all the beliefs and lifestyles that don't contemplate worshipping a god.
Lets assume I'm having a philosophical debate on god and i admit that could be some sort of creative force that started the universe. Maybe I could call that God. Since i don't worship that god and this doesn't affect my life i'm still an atheist.
Maybe the next day i could have the same debate and claim that there is no such thing as that creative force. That changed nothing, still atheist.
I'm not in a religion, so my mind is free to think whatever i want. If i have to pledge fidelity to one belief that's what i call a religion.
You can easly clear your mind about the meaning of the word thinking about how the term was used in middle age.
They called an atheist everyone who wasn't a christian. Because god wasn't in their lives. They didn't worship him. Even if they had their own gods they weren't "real gods" so...godless.
In the modern age i think Antony Flew was the first to come up with a proper classification. It's very similar to the one i made. Check that up.
The definition you wrote is the "positive atheist" definition. I think another name for it was "strong atheist", but i'm not sure.

that's like titling a picture "Honorable Japanese" and then having a picture of pearl harbor, and the kid asking "Which terrorist group did that"
this picture does not take into account the motivations behind such rash actions which is why the people who post this are so fucking ignorant

Americans did that to end a bloody war, which would only have been bloodier if allowed to continue. The number of people who died in those bombings pale in comparison to the number who'd have died in a land invasion, or a blockade, or simply doing nothing and allowing the Japanese to continue raping and pillaging Asia and the South Pacific.

It's speculation, yes. But it's speculation from historians and military tacticians who have spent the majority of their life studying that exact question. It's as valid as speculation by physicists as to what happens in a black hole, or by biologists as to how life developed on earth 4 billion years ago.

US Major General C. Chennault:
"...the entry of the Soviet Union into the war (against Japan) was the decisive factor that hastened the end of the war. Even if we had not used the bomb the result would have been just the same."
(New York Times Aug 15 1945.)
This isn't to refute your opinion, just to say that there is still a great deal of controversy/

Look up 'Operation Downfall', USA's Plan B at the end of WW2. Here's a link to an abridged look at it (Article #3): www.cracked.com/article_19487_5-backup-plans-that-would-have-changed-modern-history.html

Dude that doesn't even come close to justifying it. Just because they commit horrors against other people doesn't give you the right to murder millions of innocent civillians. If it was the argument about ending the war then there could be a debate, but don't justify killing with killing. For example an invasion would be more justified than the bombs if it were about the camp because an invasion would involve much more soldier on soldier rather than bomb on civillian.

The civilian population of Japan had essentially been militarized. The Japanese government released propaganda convincing their people that Americans would rape/torture/eat them if they surrendered. Often, Japanese civilians would either kill themselves or themselves and American soldiers once they had been defeated. They even trained kids at school to attack the Americans when they came to their town. An invasion would have killed many more civilians. The Japanese were going to fight to the death.

hahahahah no knowledge?? yeah no they LITERALLY had articles about it in their newspapers, one being about two officers having a contest to see who was the first to kill 100 people with a katana. The people of both cities and all over japan were being trained to jump into Allied platoons with live grenades making them militia i.e. a valid military target

As a (goddamn stinkin' hippy) Liberal, I find myself centered in a lot of the arguments. I believe that we should be able to have guns. I also think we should do some rigorous background checks before giving someone a gun. I don't think we should automatically deport illegals, but give them work visas and let their children live here. I don't think its fair to deport someone who has lived their whole life in America and has never been to Mexico(or wherever)
My point is, I am dissapointed in Obama. But I understand that it has been Congress that has stopped most of the progress in America. But he HAS done some shady things. But if Romney gets elected I will cut my losses for America.
