“Afaeism” is a word I’ve used before on Twitter, Facebook, and blog comment threads, but it really deserves a post of its own so I can link people to it as needed. “Afaeism” is a word I’ve coined to mean disbelief in fairies.

The reason for coining “afaeism” is simple: so that whenever you see a believer saying something about atheism, you can mentally replace “atheism” with “afaeism.” If the new statement makes just as much logical sense as the original, you know the original was pretty stupid.
