And I would say that if there is no evidence for or against a theory that
does not mean there is a 50% chance it is correct, and if I judge that the
theory was so implausible it does not warrant ware and tear on valuable
brain cells with one more thought about it then I would call myself a
teapot atheist without apology.

Well OK, if you radically redefine the word "God" and radically redefine
the word "atheism" and radically redefine the word "variant" and radically
redefine the word
"Christianity" then atheism is a variant of Christianity, just as 2+2=5 if
you redefine the symbol "2" to mean 2.5 ; but the trouble is I'm not
bilingual and am only familiar with the English language.
