RE: Agnostic
Agnostic, thinks deities may be bullshit
Atheist, knows deities are bullshit

So what information are you lacking ?

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Certainly seems that way based on his posts Dodgy

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Atheists believe there isn't evidence for deities. Confusing knowledge with a definition of atheism is misleading. Saying they "know" merely makes them gnostic atheists, but it doesn't define them as atheist.

Check out my atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Incorrect. That would be gnostic.

Gnostic - Knows
Agnostic - Don't know, or can't know

It is a position on knowledge.

Atheist - A lack of belief in a god or gods
Theist - Belief in a god or gods.

Agnostic Atheist - Thinks deities may be bullshit but doesn't know for sure, or can't know for sure
Gnostic atheist - Knows enough to know that deities are bullshit, claims to have knowledge of such.

Agnostic theist - Thinks deities are not bullshit but isn't sure or can't know for sure.
Gnostic theist - Knows deities are not bullshit, claims to have knowledge of such.

Just using "agnostic" annoys me at times because it doesn't explain where you stand on the idea. It's like saying "I'm a not know it or can't know it with no specific stance in any way shape or form even though deep down my cognitive bias definitely leans me to one side or the other and I really just hate the social consequences that come with being identified in one way or another on the stance."
