- For any item perceived to exist, at least by some, you have four options, first three being options for its actual existence:
For instance, a Christian is eternist about God and creationist about the universe and about his soul and usually evolutionist about the English language (using the word evolutionist in a very loose sense), as well as illusionist about experiences of previous lives.
While an Evolutionist Atheist is generally eternist about matter/energy, or used to be before Big Bang became popular, creationist and illusionist about God, evolutionist about the universe, evolutionist and illusionist about his own mind. And usually evolutionist about the English language. He is even creationist about certain works written in it, like Romeo and Juliet. He also would be illusionist about experiences of previous lives.
A Hindoo is generally eternist (with some evolutionism) about the ultimate reality, which would be kind of a “god”, illusionist about the universe and his separate self, also evolutionist about his separate self, as it would have gone through several incarnations and therefore also evolutionist about experiences of previous lives.
Other combinations would be possible.
