theism mentions:

"Attested in English from 1678, theist being slightly earlier, 16 years earlier in 1662."

I can't find any 1600s quotes here, does anyone know what this might refer to? If it was attested to in this year, posting that earliest known use seems important. Y12J 23:23, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

I'd like verification for the second meaning, "One who discriminates based on religion.". I've been looking for a word with that meaning. However, I think I've only heard the first meaning for theist. Superm401 04:17, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Added by an IP here in 2005. Probably nonsense; any other dictionaries have it? Mglovesfun (talk) 22:51, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
