In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.br/The term atheism originated from the Greek (atheos), meaning without god, which was applied with a negative connotation to those thought to reject the gods worshipped by the larger society.

With the spread of free thought, skeptical inquiry , and subsequent increase in criticism of religion, application of the term narrowed in scope. The first individuals to identify themselves as atheist appeared in the 18th century.
