Anyone can become a Realist. If you believe magic is not real, then you can be a Realist. Deists can call themselves Realists, and atheists who no longer want their identity tied to theists can identify themselves as Realists.

Realista person who tends to view or represent things as they really are and deal with it in a practical manner.1

Realism – re·al·ism (rē-ə-ˌli-zəm) n. is in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of magic. In a narrower sense, realism is specifically the position that there is no magic. Most inclusively, realism is the absence of belief that any magic exists, a belief in reality, the real world, an interpretation or representation of things as they actually are (distinguished from atheism).2

Atheist – athe·ist (ā-thē-ist) n. is in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist.3

Magic – mag·ic (măj′ĭk) n. an attempt to understand and use supernatural forces, through rituals, symbols, actions, gestures and language, departing from what is usual or normal, especially to transcend the laws of nature, achieving desired results through various controls of the supernatural, an effect that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.4

Note: If you’re an atheist you may be summarily dismissed by theists. They believe they have you figured out, categorized, and know all your angles. As a Realist, when they ask you, ‘Are you an atheist?’ you can say, ‘No, I am not an atheist, I just don’t believe in magic’.
