Atheism is the rejection of all gods.

There is more than one branch of pantheism. To some it is a theology in which the universe is god (or gods), which is in contradiction to the Abrahamic view that a god created the universe and is therefore separate from the universe, and to others it is a philosophy that does not involve a belief in a supernatural god; to believe that the universe exists is enough. This is where atheism and pantheism meet.

Naturalistic pantheism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
the root of the word 'pantheism' is 'theism'.
