There are also a lot of definitional issues here as to what constitutes a "god." Does something have to be a conscious, supernatural entity in order to qualify as a god? I'd generally say yes, but I guess someone could make the argument that godhood is defined by the act of being worshiped and therefore if people decide to worship the sun, it qualifies as a god (at least to them) regardless of whether they regard it as conscious or not.

There are also people who don't believe in a Creator god but believe that the universe itself, or matter itself, is conscious, and is therefore a kind of super-entity that we're all components of. Are they theists or atheists? Or does it depend on how they frame their belief?
