As far I remember, Blavatsky was against of branding theosophists as
atheists, but classified them rather as pantheists.
I am also not an atheist, but non-believer, as atheists, in my view,
are those who believe that there is no god. Non-believers don't
believe in god, unless the proofs of the reverse will be presented.
But to believe that there is no god is not much better than to believe
Belief (or rather the object of belief) is in great extent the matter
of vogue and of authority. Here in Russia, when communist regime
crushed, many former ardent atheists became fanatical christians. They
just changed matter of belief, but not the belief itself, as a state
