    because I still am willing to be convinced otherwise - but only by solid evidence. I am an agnostic or non-theist if you wish.  There seems to be something in the American psyche that needs to have everything in right-wrong, winners-losers, religious- atheistic, conservative-liberal etc.  Things do not always work that way.  I tend to be a fiscal conservative, but a social and foreign policy liberal.  The best way to drive both "sides" batty is to claim to believe in a more nuanced system.  Both "sides" will then hate you and call you wishy-washy to boot!

      you'd have a tough time finding a non-agnostic atheist. When one of us (atheists) implies otherwise, we're just using shorthand. A non-theist is, by definition, an atheist.
