If you don't definitively believe in a God then you are an atheist. Agnostic Atheist [often just called Agnostic] is just the idea that you don't believe in a God but are open to the idea you might be wrong. The other type of Atheist is a Gnostic Atheist.

A = Without
Gnostic = To know
Theist = To believe in a Deity

A-Gnostic A-Theist

Without knowing, without belief. AKA you don't believe in God but you aren't 100% sure.

People who call themselves Agnostic just hate the word "atheist" because it doesn't have the nicest image surrounding it, so they try and pretend they're something different when in reality they still fall under the definition of Atheist.

Agnostics do fall under the definition of atheism. Think of a circle on a two-dimensional plane. Everyone inside the circle belongs to theism, an active belief in the existence of a god or gods. Deism is the edge of the circle, people who believe that after the universe was created the cause ceased to be (or something to that effect). Everyone outside the circle is by definition an atheist, whether they're passive or aggressive or agnostic or gnostic or newborn babies or whatever. The point is, they're separate from the circle. They don't live their lives under the assumption that god exists. That's all that atheism is.
User avatar #307 to #295 - rieskimo (04/23/2013) [-]
No, you are incorrect.
I am personally an agnostic simply by the fact that I don't believe there to be a god but I also don't feel that I know empirically that there is definitely not a god. That's my belief, but I have plenty of friends who are agnostic and don't necessarily believe in a god but they do feel spiritual. Agnostic can be a non-denominational spirituality as well. Agnostic simply means that one doesn't believe in god but one also doesn't say that there isn't a god, that is neither theist or atheist.
#315 to #307 - bobbysnobby (04/23/2013) [-]
You dont know these words you throw around. We cannot redefine words and communicate effectively. Atheism and theism cover the whole spectrum. Do you believe there is a god? Yes No. If your answer is I dont know thats not being an Agnostic thats merely atheist.

Here is the difference. Do you believe that you can ever empirically know if there is a god? Yes/No? if you answer Yes you are a Gnostic if you answered No you are agnostic. I am agnostic because no matter what evidence is shown to me the idea of "Yes thats god" is the least likely possibility to me. Even if God stood before me I would need to rule out personal insanity to believe it and I cannot do that independent of my possibly insane mind and so I could never be convinced using empirical evidence of a god.
User avatar #314 to #307 - anonymoose ONLINE (04/23/2013) [-]
You can still be spiritual and be an Atheist. Buddhism is an Atheistic ideology.
User avatar #308 to #307 - HonkIfIDriveWell (04/23/2013) [-]

In your first line, you admitted that you don't believe there to be a god. Guess what? That makes you an atheist by definition. Atheism is not, and I repeat, not, the "belief that there is no god". It is a lack of belief. Anyone who becomes an atheist based on some form of education will most likely be an advocate of the scientific method. And, as I'm sure you know, "belief" isn't of any importance when it comes to testing a hypothesis. I'll say it again: Atheism is a lack of belief.
#93 to #29 - bobbysnobby (04/23/2013) [-]
You like so many others dont know the meaning of agnostic.

Agnostic is a philosophical position about knowledge. Agnostic refers to wither the question "Is there a god" an answerable question. Atheism and Theism are about life practices. For example a religious person who values "Faith" might be agnostic saying "I ts impossible to know for sure if there is or is not a god, but I believe there is one."

TL;DR version. Agnostic is a position about knowledge and is independent of belief.
#109 to #93 - ogloko (04/23/2013) [-]
Oxford Dictionary "a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God." "a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience."

agnostic is a noun as well as an adjective.

Agnostics are not convinced in either argument. the answer is unknowable and atheists look just as silly as theists.
#160 to #109 - bobbysnobby (04/23/2013) [-]
Atheist and Theist are opposite you are either in one camp or the other. You either live as if there is a god, or you do not there is no gray in that distinction.

Huxley coined the term Agnostic to refer to the systems of knowledge. That was later used by Rowe who put it into vernacular for the public as "Neither believe nor disbelieve" it is however a misrepresentation. Just as in evolutionary biology "Survival of the fittest" can be misconstrued to mean very different things.

It has deep roots in philosophy and has to do with knowledge and skepticism. You can cite dictionary dot com or bobs blog it makes little difference Theologens and professors studying the Philosophy of Religion would never use the term agnostic as some "Inbetween" ground between theists/deists and atheists it just makes no sense.

The funniest part is when agnostics subscribe to the illusion that being agnostic somehow exempts them from being atheists. Atheism is the lack of a belief, not a belief in the lack of.

It's dumb how so many atheists believe that all christians love to accuse them of arguing and debating with them when irl most could care less because they know that no matter how many biblical quotations they bring up to an Atheist at the end of the day they'll still believe in whatever crap they believe in.

If somebody is posting anti-homosexuality status' on facebook. Step in.
If somebody is posting racist status' on facebook. Step in.

"Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men"

Now I'm not saying that religion is a bad thing, I'm just saying that letting somebody say something and not standing up for the other side is a pretty ****** thing to do. Let's them think it's ok to get away with it.
User avatar #150 to #123 - markertemp (04/23/2013) [-]
Racism and Anti-homosexuality are ways of attacking other people for who they are.

Saying you believe in a certain religion is not attacking anyone. Unless the first person to start the conversation explicitly says that everyone who follows a different faith is wrong, there is no need for someone to step in.

You're not getting it.
It's if they are spouting their ******** beliefs about how *other* people should live.

That's not what is implied in your first post. You simply said that if you see a post (regardless of the subject matter) and don't stand up for the "other side," you're doing it wrong.

It's not a bad thing (despite your comparisons and your quote heavily implying it is), but you should stand up for the side of atheism for every religious post you see, and vice versa for every non-religious post you see? For every gay rights post, you should be anti-gay for that argument? All anti-animals post turn you into a PETA sympathizer?

You're basically arguing for the sake of arguing.

Playing devils advocate is a personal hobby of mine.
My point is that for every argument you should give fair and equal time to all opposing arguments.
However, intolerance is not an argument. And the bible is not an adequate source for an argumentitve standpoint.

There's nothing "constructive" about arguing just because you can. Even if I posted some heartstring pulling, life changing speech, you wouldn't acknowledge it because you've cemented yourself as being part of "the other side," because apparently you enjoy being against people rather than with them.
User avatar #178 to #173 - lolfire (04/23/2013) [-]
Basically what you are arguing is that religious people should be allowed to declare homosexuality and other behaviors prohibited in the bible as evil and unnatural.
You are actually trying to promote bigotry.

Indifference is evil. And "being with people" on an issue is not more important than exploring the issue fully. You're the sort of person who would have joined the Nazi's because "everyone else is doing it". You disgust me.
User avatar #317 to #123 - markertemp (04/23/2013) [-]

....Can you read ? I'm going to assume you can.
Look back up to the comment that you just replied to.

User avatar #319 to #318 - markertemp (04/23/2013) [-]
I'm sorry, we've communicated before? I don't often remember people who are too stupid to function, my apologies.

Let's start from the beginning of this whole spiel. Starting with the content we are commenting on.

The content is talking about a random Atheist named Jimmy. Jimmy has religious friends. Jimmy's religious friends like to express their beliefs. Jimmy's religious friends do not try to force Jimmy or anyone else to be religious. Knowing this, Jimmy lets his friends share their beliefs, because they are not doing anything to him. As such, Jimmy does not start a ********* .

Now let's go to your initial comments here, numbered 116. You said "Yeah, because we all know that ignoring the problem is the best way to deal with it." However, this doesn't make sense. Not starting a ********* isn't ignoring a problem, it's being the better man. If the hypothetical scenario involved Jimmy's friends berating him for not believing in a deity, then he has every reason to respond in turn. However, we are assuming this is not happening.

Then comes your next comment, 123. You compared people sharing their religious beliefs to racist and homophobic comments. However, racists and homophobes, as I stated in my comment #150, are attacking people with their statements, while people who say they believe in a god are not. I will argue with racists, homophobes, antisemites, and the like. I will not argue with someone just because they believe in a god, unless they start to tell me I am going to hell for not accepting Jesus as my savior.

tl;dr - If someone wants to share their beliefs without attacking someone or a group of people, starting an argument with them is a textbook example of being a dick.

I should state, for anyone reading this thread, that my standing point is that when someone posts religious beliefs that belittle or harass any person that you should step in.

Personal religion is fine, but when religion becomes a tool to abuse other people's way of life, then it becomes a problem.

It is very much possible. But the problem is that religious people are beeing assholes to us. There are no Ateists I know that want to kill every Christian, Muslim or Hindu, but a whole lot of Christians and Muslims calling for the execution of all Agnostic Atheists (BTW: That would be more than 93% of all National Academy of Sciences, and more than 15 % of the American population.) (Also to clarify: Agnosticism adresses what you know, Atheism what you believe. Two different categories that are often not well understood.)
