    This is twisting to make an appearance that everyone believes in some form of god. If Bob believes that his dog is god and Bill believes Bob has a dog, because they live next to each other and Bill has seen Bob's dog, then Bill believes in the same god. This is BS.

    Not quite. Bill does not beleive in the same god, because he does define his god as Bob's dog. Bill simply believes that Bob's dog exists. He is a theist, only relative to Bob, not by his own belief system. These are all relative terms, and they must be, because it is obvious that each and every person who claims to believe in god, has a different conception, and a unique conception of "God". Not all of them are believing in the same being, by definition. And this is why it is meaningless to call a person a theist or atheist until we apply a particular framework of definitions, your own, or their own.
