    Not that it matters, but the plural would be "atheoi". "i" is the Latin masculine nominative/vocative plural ending of the second declension. "Theos" is from Greek, and while you got the declension, gender, number, and case right, you got the wrong language. ツ
    As a goatherd learns his trade by goat, so a writer learns his trade by wrote.

    I got the right language. If I wanted to speak Latin, I'd say lightning is proof of Jupiter.

    More seriously, atheī is valid Latin and both checkmate atheoi and checkmate ἄθεοι look wrong to me aesthetically, but maybe we could ask the hoi polloi if you think that's an issue.
