I'm an apetheist. We are all ruled over by a great golden monkey who enjoys throwing his sh!t at us and we are the ones in the cages.

Agnostics are atheists who just won't admit it yet. Atheists are the same as agnostics but some still refuse to admit it. Apatheists are tsundere agnostics, which makes them atheists.

Agnosticism is basically your knowledge claim. "I don't believe in god but I am not certain" is what an Agnostic Atheist would say. "I know there is no god" is what a gnostic Atheist would say. This would also apply to Theism and Deism.

The word "a" means "lack of" while "Gnosticism" means "knowledge".


Most atheists I know pretty much follow the idea behind Hitchens' razor (that which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence). I know I did even before I read that line in his book years ago. Which is the exact reason why agnostics are not theists -- the absence of empirical evidence. This horse has been beaten so many times that's it's almost always covered on the first few chapters of every book under the atheism section at your local bookstore. The celestial teapot, Pastafarianism, the Invisible Pink Unicorn..you name it. All of them have been created to demonstrate the absurdity of the religious side arguing that "no evidence for existence of a non-existent being" is evidence or at the very least, a good reason to sit on a fence.



Even that done and said still being open to the idea that whilst believing that one may be wrong is a sign of an open mind.

being Agnostic is just simply being open minded about it and accepting that even though its not true is close minded because we don't know everything.

Thats how i see it though.
