He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I never knew there was a term for believing that the existence of a deity is irrelevant. I'm one of the few forum theists, but I think I fall under this same category with you. I don't believe that anyone needs to believe in G-d and life won't change based on what you think. G-d either exists or does not exist and if you needed to know for sure, that information would be plainly apparent.

Sounds like you are a deist, someone who believes in an indifferent God. I can respect that, since you likely don't try to convert others or rationalize the problem of evil.

Naaah, I'm a bonafide theist. I don't think G-d is indifferent, I just think that our believing in him isn't necessary and isn't going to change the way we live our lives.

I'm trying to lure a few of the sane ones over from Amazon.
It's slim pickins, though. Consider

I dunno, it's kind of like Kurt Vonnegut's "Church of God, the Utterly Indifferent".

RE: Amazon Refugee Roll Call
To all you Amazonian refugees, I welcome you with song and dance. I posted the Allan Commings version on another post so I give you Joel Gray's version of Willkommen here because, why not.
