Athesist, if I am wrong correct me, is the outright belief that nothing after this life exists. This is the core of that belief. If you meet that qualification then atheist may fit your religious profile. Then there are the fence-sitters (me included) who don't know, but see the possibility. This overall quality is that of agnostic. Anything apart from those two is some sort of religious/spiritual belief structure. I find this to be the simplest way of explaining these concepts. Hope that this helped, oh and it's spelled Deity . Very close.
