some months ago, some1 here said he did believe in god but hadn't any trust in his religious leaders and system. and called going to church a waste of time.
i dunno what his reasons behind it are but i guess he can be put in that group.


well he could simply believe in god and thats it. some people even believe in a god but dont follow any of the religions. besides, think about how old most religions are. there is a great chance that what the religion was supposed to be aiming for is totally different from what it is today. many religions have many branches. some christians believe that non-christians go to heaven too. and there is actually a pretty logical explanation for that. who knows, maybe that minority is actually right about what christianity is supposed to be.

the same can be said in most religions.

Did some looking into. It seems a theistic antitheist is one who believes god exists but doesn't believe that god is worthy of worship.

An example would be if someone objectively demonstrated to me that the God of the Bible existed and that God was as he is depicted in the Bible. This God demonstrated to be real would be one I would believe exists, but I wouldn't find such a God worthy of worship. Thus making me a theistic antitheist in such a situation.

remember that anti-theism is only when someone does not beleive that there should be organized religioun, or any religioun at all. many people do look this way because of certain topics, such as terrorism is caused by religioun, due to the fact that the terror strikes are caused by muslim radicals trying to convert people over by force, or simply the fact that so much hate and violence happen due to modern religioun, and all throughout time people have had wars to settle religious disputes (i.e. the crusades, the holy war, the pagan uprisings,etc.) some people believe that if religioun had been disowned by people, then these events would not have happened. the numbers of these people are quite staggering in fact, a large chunk of the atheist population belongs to this group, as well as certain poeple who dont hold organized religioun.

MageGrayWolf is correct, thiestic antitheism is a very large group of religioun, millions of people are grouped into this, many without realization of it. It simply means that you dont worship god, but you still beleive that he exists, as MageGrayWolf put it.

If you know that God exists, why do you not worship Him?

Several reasons, for example there is religions that believe in a god, but think he is evil. There is also certain sects that believe in a god, but one that is just an uncaring clock man to the universe, who does not care about worship. Why would all gods be as insane in wanting worship as yours?
