To be atheological refers to someone or something (i.e. Church, belief system) that is not concerned with theology as a fundamental part of its worldview. When used to describe people, it indicates an indifference to doctrine or supreme reality. One can be atheological and be well acquainted with one's religion. What makes one atheological is that the "why" questions to their fundamental life choices are not answered by a theology-driven worldview. Many of the Pharisees, for example, were atheological. They knew the scriptures, but they rejected Jesus in order to preserve their status quo and culture.
