Theism is the belief in God. There are two main types: monotheism, which is the belief in one God, and polytheism, which is the belief is many gods. Christianity, Judaism, and… Islam are all examples of monotheism, while Hinduism is an example of polytheism. Another Answer (posted by AustralianAstronomer, 6th December 2009). Derived from the Greek words; theos (god) and theoi (gods). Theism can be defined as follows; Belief that there is a God, Belief that there are Gods, Godly. Theism can be subdivived into monotheism (belief that there is one God) or polytheism (belief that there is more than one God). There are also different conceptions of a God; theistic (a God that does intervene in the course of human affairs) or deistic (a God that does not intervene in the course of human affairs). A pantheistic God does manifest through every aspect of the universe as a conscious being (space, time, matter, energy, mass). Hence the term, "all is god, god is all". Contrary to popular belief, theism does not necessarily equate to religion. Buddhism, Jainism and Taoism are non-theistic religions. Furthermore, not all theists are affiliated with an organised religion.

There is no such word, since there is a perfectly good alternative, atheism, already in wide use. Atheism is the conviction that there are no gods or deities of any kind. The …'a' of a_theism is a prefix of negation.
Jainism is not dualistic, it is more of multiplicity region i.e. anekantwad... One can say somewhat close to Einstein`s theory of relativity - truth is relative.
Theism For Islam Is quite simple, That there is one god (Allah) and that Mohmmad is his messenger PBUH.
None. Buddhists do not believe in a God. It is more of a philosophy than a true religion.Buddhists believe in gods.It is a life any one can achieve through good deeds.

Thales of Mileuts ~585 BC was a dualist. He taught his students of the phusis (one underlying element to everything). He believed the phusis was water. He believed in the mind… and the body (as well as physical matter) being separate entities.
