tan isnt a colour in many languages unlike beige. Tan is only known in english as in "getting a tan" ( so sunbathing) for many, it wasnt until a few years ago I heard the first mention of tan being used to indicate colour. (and in other languages it is only known as hue)

Almost four years since the quiz was created, and still no sheik without the h. I'm hoping I'll be the last one to ask for it! :)

Shouldn't the clue for "atheist" be: One who acknowledges that no gods exist?
+1
level 50
Sep 1, 2014
That depends on what you believe. If you believe in the existence of God, which I do, then an atheist is one who denies the existence of God. If you are an atheist, like yourself, then an atheist is one who acknowledges that no gods exist. Whether or not you believe in God is the main factor in how you perceive an atheist.

How can the definition of a word or concept depend on your perception? Things do not simply change because of how you see them. A theist is someone who believes in a god or gods. An atheist is someone who does not believe in a god or gods. An atheist may have further beliefs, such as that a god can possibly exist or that there definitely is no god. This, however, is not atheism. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in any god or gods.

The Canadian is right, of course. My tongue-in-cheek definition above was just attempting to mirror the potentially perceived bias in the clue used in the quiz.

It was the ONLy spelling until a few years ago when some goofs added an H that in no way changed the way English speakers will still say it.

Can the clue for atheist be: "One who does not believe in gods"? It would be more accurate, and avoid fueling the popular belief that atheists secretly believe in God and are just lying about it.

Seconded. Denying sounds so negative.

Yea it seems like "denial", not really neutral but going from the assumption that there is a god as starting point. Believing in a god and not believing in any god is a more neutral way to state it.

Um.. pedantic I know, but please add ‘Japanese’ before martial arts for the sensei clue. If I called my Chinese Kung Fu instructor ‘Sensei’, i’d probably get a few thousand press-ups. If I was lucky.
