Absolute certainty when it comes to gods is impossible, therefore, why are you an atheist rather than an agnostic atheist.

Yea the revision was already semi covered. What i want to know is why does that distinction mean anything to you and in what context.

It's interesting enough, apparently, to make several contributions to the discussion. How uninteresting does a topic have to be to drive you to ignore it and floss your teeth or rearrange your sock drawer.

In other words, I don't think you find it all THAT uninteresting!

Eric, why do people have beliefs about things they can't be certain about? Why can't someone be an atheist based on what they believe? I believe that no one has taken my refrigerator out of my apartment even though I'm visiting a relative and have no way to verify that fact. I'm acting based on the best evidence I have, which is how someone can be an atheist. I, too, believe that if many atheists were a little more rigorous, they should really be agnostic, but I can't blame them for being less rigorous and basing their belief on what they feel the truth to be.

Isn't "agnostic atheist" an oxymoron??
