aitm. "rejected belief in a supernatural deity who interacts with humankind" is simply rejecting a type (or a few types) of god(s).

It's specifically rejecting a deity or god that intervenes after they create. This is not excluding deities that stand on the sidelines and do nothing afterwards. In fact, it's exactly what deism is. The belief that there is a deity that does not intervene. Eliminating gods that intervene post-creation, does not eliminate all types of gods.
