RE: Rational Agnostic Beliefs vs Irrational Agnostic Beleifs
Thanks for the update on the definition of agnosticism. I pretty sure I understand now. Learn something new everyday. I will no longer used that word outside of a religious reference or use the word agnostic with the word belief.

I was incorrectly using to word to describe both religious and non-religious beliefs that lack the highest quality of evidence.

So all agnostics are atheists because they lack the belief in God or Gods, due to the fact that it's unknowable. Correct?

Rev pretty much covered it. It's possible to believe in one or more god but not claim to know such a thing. I would have put myself in that quadrant toward the last bit of my 30-year stint as a theist.
