What would you consider yourself?

I am Agnostic in a general sense(how many gods have been pondered?) and atheist when applied in a specific sense(Abrahamic religions). One reason: reason.

"As for me, all I know is that I know nothing."-truth

Wikipedia;

-Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, but also other religious and metaphysical claims—are unknown or unknowable. Agnosticism can be defined in various ways, and is sometimes used to indicate doubt or a skeptical approach to questions. In some senses, agnosticism is a stance about the difference between belief and knowledge, rather than about any specific claim or belief. In the popular sense, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of a deity or deities, whereas a theist and an atheist believe and disbelieve, respectively. In the strict sense, however, agnosticism is the view that human reason is incapable of providing sufficient rational grounds to justify the belief that deities either do or do not exist.

-Atheism 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 simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.

-Theism, in the broadest sense, is the belief that at least one deity exists. In a more specific sense, theism is a doctrine concerning the nature of a monotheistic God and God's relationship to the universe. Theism, in this specific sense, conceives of God as personal, present and active in the governance and organization of the world and the universe. As such theism describes the classical conception of God that is found in Christianity, Judaism, Islam and some forms of Hinduism. The use of the word theism to indicate this classical form of monotheism began during the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century in order to distinguish it from the then-emerging deism which contended that God, though transcendent and supreme, did not intervene in the natural world and could be known rationally but not via revelation.

-Reason is the capacity human beings have to make sense of things, to establish and verify facts, and to change or justify practices, institutions, and beliefs.

Some books that helped me reach this conclusion.

The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan
Why Evolution Is True by Jerry A. Coyne
The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason by Sam Harris
Free Will by Sam Harris
Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind by V. S. Ramachandran

Atheist myself. While I'm not a believer in scientology, I do think science is the closest to knowing the truth. There are things unknown, but there's way too much suspension of belief to believe that one being created everything.
