Coming from either a Christian or nonreligious/atheist point of view:

Does it make god... "God," sorry... an atheist if he believes there is no other higher power than him. God can either be Jesus or his father.

IS GOD AN ATHEIST?

Thank you for the opportunity to debate this topic. I assume that since you are taking the Pro side, you are saying that God is an atheist.

The definition of theism is, "belief in the existence of a god or gods; specifically : belief in the existence of one God viewed as the creative source of the human race and the world who transcends yet is immanent in the world". Atheism is defined as, "a disbelief in the existence of deity" (1, 2)

Saying that God is an atheist for not believing in the existence of a god is comparable to saying I don't believe in humans because I am one. Theism isn't the belief in a "higher power" as you say, but that there is, in fact, a god. I'll take a little liberty in saying that God most likely acknowledges his own existence as a god, and is thus a theist.

I think this is pretty open-and-shut, but I look forward to my opponent's response nonetheless.
