As if a dictionary is some sort of projective authority?So I'll go by the dictionary,
If you want to know what the word "atheist" means?
ASK AN ATHEIST.
Do not ask an **theist**-- they do not know and refuse to understand.
A dictionary is simply a collection of the most **common** usages of a word.
Since there are more theists-- with their straw-man "definition" of what it means to **be** an atheist?
Their false definition gets into the dictionary along side the correct one.
