Confusion: Atheist or Theist?

On one side, popular atheist author Christopher Hitchens remarked that all Christians are atheist because they don't believe in Zeus.

On the other side, there is this Dutch pastor Klaas Hendrikse who thinks that as long as you have a relationship with another human being, and you believe in the relationship, then you can say that you are a theist.

So next time you want to find out whether someone is an atheist or theist, you should ask him, "Which God do you believe, or which one you don't believe?" The positive and negative aspect of the question will narrow down the spiral of category.
