I highly doubt the existence of a God. I believe observable evidence points to the lack of a God. I do, however hold agnostic beliefs. I accept the fact that the only definite truth is that we exist. There may indeed be a God, who is hiding his existence to you for an unknown purpose. Unlikely? Yes. Impossible? NO! Maybe a God a created the universe with a big bang and then went on his merry way. Maybe he is watching through methods you cannot comprehend. What if God really was a total power hungry asshole and he just wants you to blindly worship him or hes throwing you to the depths of hell?
As an atheist you are making a stand. You do not believe in a God nor do you believe in the possibility of a God. How is it that you realize the ignorance of believing in a God, but not the ignorance of being so sure that there is no God?
You are right that I do not believe in God, but you are wrong that I do not believe in the possibility of a God. I agree that it would be ignorant to assert that there are not deities without proof. I do not assert that there are no deities. I only assert that I do not believe in any deities; hence I am an atheist. If I come across compelling proof that a deity exists, then I won’t be an atheist any more.
Now let me ask about your beliefs. You say that it is unlikely that God exists, but that you are agnostic on the subject. How unlikely do you think it is that God exists? More unlikely than it is that talking zebras exist? If God is more unlikely than talking zebras, would you describe yourself as agnostic about talking zebras? If your child asked you if talking zebras existed, would you answer “Maybe”?
My point is that I don’t understand why you treat your knowledge about the existence of God differently than you treat your knowledge about the existence of other things (assuming you do), and I do not understand why you both refer to yourself as agnostic and talk about evidence for God’s existence. If you do not believe that God exists but allow the possibility that your mind will change in the future, then at the moment you do not believe that God exists and can correctly refer to yourself as an atheist. If you think it is not possible to prove or disprove the existence of deities, then you are an agnostic regardless of whether or not you believe deities exist.
From your description of yourself, you sound like an atheist to me. If I am misunderstanding you and you do not think that proof of the existence of deities is possible one way or the other, then you are an agnostic atheist. Would you agree?
