"Atheists simply believe in one fewer god than a monotheist. 1"
Belief in God is certainly not similar to atheism–they are directly contrary to each other. Therefore, there is no “logical progression” between monotheism and atheism.

- McGrath, 2007, p. 57: “At an early state in The God Delusion, Dawkins represents atheism as the ultimate outcome of a process of whittling down irrational beliefs about the supernatural. You begin with polytheism–believing in lots of gods. Then as time progresses and your thinking becomes more sophisticated, you move on to monotheism–belief in only one God. Atheism just takes this one step further. As Dawkins playfully remarks, it just involves believing in one less god than before.” ↩
