I would call myself a non-believer. I don't believe in any superstitious stories about spirits, men in the sky, corpses rising from the dead, or going to a different place after we die. It is not just that I don't believe in any god, but also that I don't believe in superstition.
In its simplest form . . . a person who does not believe in a particular thing.

The term is, however, especially applied to one who has no religious faith.
A non-believer is generally a person who does not believe in God. It may also mean a person who doesn't believe in the God of your chosen religion. My personal belief is that a person cannot be a real believer unless they follow God, and the philosophy and way of life inevitably flows from that.
I can't define what a non-believer is, but I can do so for an Atheist :::::::

"A person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods."
People can believe or not believe in lots of things, but a non-believer in this context doesn't believe in a god/gods. There can't be any half-measures. If there were the subject wouldn't be a non-believer - he'd be a 'don't know'.
You need to define what one is or is not believing in, first.
Could be any of the above.
Non-belief does not preclude the possibility that what one does not believe might nevertheless exist. It is at the point of believing that one no longer qualifies as a non-believer. Regarding any specific issue one is either a believer or a non-believer. There is no fence to sit on.

For me I'm a non-believer for the simple reason : there is no testable proof . Billions of prayer are offered up every day and have been for millennia , with the same result ,when objectively tested they fail !
I have no proof that you exist when I'm not looking at you.
Question Author
Old Geezer That's true but by using some of your five senses you can discover the truth. Whereas none of your senses can prove a God exists. The reverse is the case . Of course it depends on what you define as proof. A theist sees proof everywhere . If something/anything exists that in itself proves to a theist God also exists. There is no answer to that
illogicality as you can't prove or disprove something that is only imaginary in the first place.
