So makes no sense.
That's because your statement is all made up by you!

For you that would mean supporting atheism.

For me that would mean a neutral source like the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

"athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity
athe·is·tic \ˌā-thē-ˈis-tik\ or athe·is·ti·cal \ˌā-thē-ˈis-ti-kəl\ adjective
athe·is·ti·cal·ly \-ti-k(ə-)lē\ adverb"

Your notion here still requires evolution.
I'm thinking of that discussion with shubee, where it also came up.
basicly it's a rephrasing of Darwins one.
As in shortterm denoting health, reproductive prowess.
And longterm would mean passing this on to future generations.
Both the best adaptation to the environment.
ex.Plants/animals fight with poisons/fangs or start symbiotic relationships to take the best advantage of the environment.
So it would also take epi-genetic changes into account.

So a bit puzzled as to what i might still be missing in
the definition.
But it will be for tomorrow.

Good night.

What term would you use for someone who doesn't believe that there is a God (or any gods), but does not believe that there are no gods?

Ditto!
You're a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.
Not an atheist that has an absence of all believe.
Merriam-Webster
athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity
Point proven yet again and again!
Atheist you can't live with them and you're not allowed to kill them. Oh well.
Wow, you haven't read anything I have posted on the subject. I do not believe that any of your specific gods exist, because there is no evidence supporting them. If there is a god, we don't know, and neither do you, we're just honest enough to say we don't know and you have to make up lies to justify your delusion.

That would be agnostic:

ag·nos·tic\ag-ˈnäs-tik,əg -\
noun
1 : a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god
2 : a person who is unwilling to commit to an opinion about something <political agnostics>

Evolution:
The competition for environmental advantages by means of parasitism or symbiosis directed towards short- and longterm effect on the viability of populations.
Collins 1988 dictionary on biology would have: an explanation of the way in which present day organisms have been produced. involving changing taking place in the genetic make-up of populations that have been passed on to successive generations. Then it goes on to darwinism, mutations, naturel selection, adaptation genetic) as the means to give rise to new species (as opposed to special creation) but on how fast that happened the debate was still ongoing in 1988.

Well this should cover the bases without the drawback of leading to f.i. discussions as whether 'natural' is really god-design.

Evolution is an explanation of the way in which present day organisms have been produced and in which several mutations have given rise to changes or led to demise of species due to biological pressurures expressed in competition for environmental advantages by means of parasitism or symbiosis directed towards short-(health and productivity) and longterm (health, productivity spanning generations) effects on the viability of populations as a whole.

No not happy yet.

darn

and then we have not yet discussed it.

Stress and thus pressure, no matter what the origin is causal in changes, but i wonder if it should be in my general definition of evolotion.
Reasoning like that i would say: "yes".
