The atheist's beliefs are imprisoned within the current scientific paradigm of materialism. The theist operates outside of the limited paradigm of materialism, but the theist's beliefs are polluted by prior unmet emotional need which he/she transforms into a deity. Quasitheism is a formalized acknowledgment that there is indeed something
beyond material reality, but does not go so far as to declare that this immaterial reality is a sentient deity, while still admitting that it could
be something that we would call a deity. There are simply too many hypotheses that cannot be selected for or against within our current understanding. Quasi-
is a prefix which basically means "almost", and I felt that it was the best available prefix to encompass the range of unknowns in the search for "divinity". Quasitheism could arguably be classified as a permutation of agnosticism, but what distinguishes quasitheism is that it definitively states that there is something
beyond material reality.
