I can't find myself on that scale. I call myself an agnostic atheist. In other words, I'm both. I don't believe God exists based on what I know, but I can't rule out that could change my mind, though I can't imagine what discovery or experience could accomplish that.
I'm Ignostic. I don't have any beliefs about the existence of god because any conversation about god or the supernatural is a waste of time. Ignostics believe that being 99% sure of god or 100% certain he doesn't exist is silly. It's like being 99% sure that Captain Picard and Harry Potter would get along swell. It's all nonsense. All of it. It's a little beside the point calling yourself an atheist or an agnostic in my opinion...because an opinion on an absurdity isn't an opinion worth bothering about in the first place.
I think you hit it, Davis. And Captain Kirk would get along better with Harry Potter, I think.
Hmmm. The question is if there was a battle royale between Potter, Kirk and Picard with no rules and gloves off...who would win? Keep in mind there is only one objectively true answer and if you are lucky and have enough money I will tell you over the phone what the answer is and for a lot more you can by my special book which is a cosmic revalation of these deep truths.
I find this narrative helps explain agnostice: One cannot prove god doesn't exist and there is no evidence that he does and so I am fence sitting.
That doesn't mean that they believe that god's existence or non-existence is equally probable. Agnostics can (and usually do) have very serious doubts about god's existence and think it far more probable that god doesn't exist.
Where did you get this definition of agnostics Shane?
Well... you could be a theist and an anti-theist at the same time. If God came down and revealed himself/herself to us... oh... for shits and giggles lets just say its the Mormon god... Joseph Smith is there with a big smile on his face saying... see, I told you so. And he really reveals himself to everyone with 100% certainty - beyond a reasonable doubt...Well we would all be theist. There would be no atheist..(except for the few who refuse to except reality). But I'm pretty sure we would still all be opposed to this lunatic God...because you know... he is a total asshole... we would not worship him... we would not bow down...we would be anti-theist.
thats not what anti-theist means.
