Hello, I have been reading your site and enjoy your posts. For several years now I have considered myself an agnostic. I never felt that I could commit to saying that I was atheist. This was in part, because for so long I thought that I KNEW there was a God and looking back on […]

Hello. I stumbled upon your sight when trying to search for a way to talk to my girlfriend, a somewhat “devout” Christian. Sometimes it can get very frustrating when I try to discuss why she believes what what she does, and she just resorts to saying “I just want you to be saved”. Fortunately, I […]

I agree w/most of your statements on atheism, But there is one I do not agree with that would be that there are atheists who simply choose no religion if you choose no religion but do not deny one then you are agnostic and subconsiously searching for a religion to follow. I’d also like to […]

I was reading some correspondece concerning the question of agnostism versus atheism. The best discussion I have read is in George Smith’s Atheism: the Case Against God. As my copy is on loan, I can only paraphrase. Smith appels to the etymology of the terms “atheism” and “agnosticism”. Atheism is quite clearly a negative term […]

I don’t mean to annoy you, nor to seem ignorant. And I would plead the case that any ignorance you detect leads directly from an argument I did not take the time to fully flush out. My apologies. I believe strongly in healthy debate, and I hope to walk away with an improved perspective whenever […]

http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/atheist – definition Atheist http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/agnostic – definition Agnostic The definition for Atheist is narrow wherever you look. It is an active and certain belief that there is no god. There is no “type” of atheist who says “they don’t have sufficient reason to believe in god.” That is an agnostic statement. You cannot have it […]

I am ignostic. I can say that I have absolutely no proof there isn’t or is not a god. You also have no proof there is not a god. Extreme belief in the absence of fact is faith. Aethiests, whether they like it or not, have faith that there is no god. Strange position to […]

I guess I am more of an agnostic than a complete atheist but I do strongly lean toward atheism. The current regime in power in the US has done more to convince me that not only is there no God but that the concept has always been an excuse to do pure EVIL in the […]
