Hi Harv:

I only have time to make one point, I'll deal with the rest later tonight or tomorrow (though I will admit now that my definitions were flawed and non-traditional, just to get that over with.)

Theism is belief in God. (I think the Greek word for God was Theos) Now, I would not consider a creator who is neither intelligent nor conscious a God (i.e. your divine order.) Let's call it Something Else. I mean, if it isn't even sentient? I don't think it could be called a God by any stretch of the imagination. So I don't consider belief in a universal order to be theism. True, it isn't atheism either, or agnosticism. How about aatheism?
