Agnostic Atheist.

And really, people, stop saying you're "agnostic" - that's not a very good description since you could be an agnostic theist of any religion, or you could be an agnostic atheist.

gnosticism, from "gnosis" is having "spiritual knowledge" - You say that you know for sure.
agnosticism, a lack of spiritual knowledge - You say that you do not know.
theism - a religious belief
atheism - lack of religious belief

so...
gnostic theist is someone who believes in god, and is certain of it
agnostic theist is someone who believes in god, but is not certain, or believes one can not know for certain

AND

agnostic atheist, someone who lacks a belief in god, but is not certain, or believes one can not know for certain
gnostic atheist, someone who lacks belief in god, and is certain of god's non-existance

Me, I'm an agnostic atheist, but I prefer to say I am a realist or a rationalist. However, like many things in my life, I am 99.99999999999~% certain that there is no god, and when you're that certain, you just tend to say "There is no god." - In other words, as sure as you can be about anything.

That's my stance.

Agnostic. I like to say I believe in whatever it is that exists, if anything.

I also believe in astrology..I'm not sure if that qualifies as a religion. If astrology's a religion, I change my mind, and am therefore an..astrologian? >_>

It is definitely a belief in something that could only be called spiritual and that there is no evidence of, so sure, we'll say it's a religion!

To quote Weird Al...

Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely
that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have
a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you,
but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions
are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have
to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true. Where was I?

I'm not religious at all in fact I'm Anti-theist.
For those who may not know what this is ill do you favor and post a definition.

Anti-theist- A person who holds the view that organized religion when considered throughout the centuries has been a destructive force in society, wrongly believed is that all are also agnostics or atheists, but a great number of faithful theists also see organized religion as harmful to society and choose to follow their own path to god.

Satanist

Really more of a Romantic (as in the Romantic movement and Sturm und Drang) with a penchant for Thelema, Gnosticism, Subjective Idealism, Hinduism, Greek/Egyptian/Mesopotamian paganism and Western occultism. I also have something of an interest in early Christian history, especially pre-Council of Nicaea, and Jewish oral tradition.
