I think that, more generally, "atheism" is being against a religios deity. 
I think that's where Flew treads a fine line. he's willing to concede that 
there might be "a god" or some sort of primum mobile, but certainly NOT in 
any sense of any of the major religion's points of view.

Still, I'd be interested in the ps and qs of the disbelief thing.
