  • I believe "amythist" as given in the example is actually a misspelling of "amethyst" the gemstone. I propose a new definition of "amythist" as a superset of the term "atheist" (one who does not believe in a God or gods). An "amythist" (or A-myth-ist, with a long 'a' and emphasis on 'myth') is someone who does not believe in any myths at all.
