    to say , based on science, that that you have reached a conclusion is not.

    I disagree with agnostics, but I do not think they are foolish.

      What does an atheist believe that distinghuishes them from an agnostic. And agnostic about what. If I am 99.999999999% sure that Jesus doesn't exist in Heaven, but I am 95% sure that Thor doesn't, is that better than the other way around?

        An agnostic says they don't (or can't) know. An atheist says they don't believe. Under these definitions, many people are both, but that's not always the case.

        that the response go further than that. What is it that an atheist believes? I am an atheist. When it comes to god, I have no beliefs. None. Not even an opinion that varies from yours. God's existence is not a yes or no question I must answer. There is no position I must defend.  It is not a subject of hours and hours of aimless wondering. It is not something I've spent 10 minutes pondering my entire life. I don't reject god. That would require a proper evaluation. I really don't give a shit.

      •  Thanks for all of the replies folks but I gotta go (1+ / 0-)

        I would make more pithy responses but I'm gettin' low on pith.
