    Theism - Wikipedia
    Monotheism: I am a monotheist, and here is an article describing monotheism for you: Monotheism - Wikipedia
    Panentheism: Panentheism - Wikipedia I was a Panentheist until I was 15.
    Pantheism: Pantheism - Wikipedia These believe the universe is God or Goddess.
    Polytheism: Polytheism - Wikipedia They believe there is more than one god or goddess.
    Theism: Theism - Wikipedia referenced by the preceeding link is not to be confused with deism, referenced here: Deism - Wikipedia
    This is an article on dystheism: Dystheism - Wikipedia This is the opposite of eutheism which means one believes their God or Goddess is benevolant, or good for the layperson. I hope I provided enough options to choose from, and it is noted that varying schools exist within each type of theism.

    I'm using it in the strict non-dual Hindu sense. There is only one Ultimate Reality that goes through an eternal cycle of experiencing the illusion of separation. I don't think the illusion is bad, though. It's worthwhile.

    I am an advaitist Hindu and a strong atheist.
    Advaitist (non-dualist) atheist Hindu but not anti-theist. How can I be anti-theist when one who is worshiping also is me! :)
