Religion flowchart?
I know labels only create divides but out of curiosity, is there an unbiased religion flowchart to see what exactly my title would be? I can't seem to find one.

Ex. Strong atheist agnostic irreligious, weak religious atheist, or strong agnostic theist etc. etc.

I wouldn't bother with the "strong/weak" contrivances; they tend to misrepresent things, and in a somewhat inflammatory way. Much like the word "militant" does.
The question is: do you believe or accept any claims of a god or gods? If no: atheist.

Simple as that.

Short answer: no.

Different people have different ideas on what a label stands for.

The charts you've been so far presented with show one possible interpretation of the most common labels, as often championed by atheists, with the view point that things you know are not the same as things you believe in, but the former is a subset of the latter. In this model, if your answer to the question, "Do you believe in a god?" is anything but "Yes", then you qualify as an atheist, that is to say, you're not a theist.

(A)gnosticism then only further specifies the strength of your convictions, i.e. how certain you are that your beliefs are true.

use a <edited my mod to remove link to flowhart software promotion> like creately, and there are templates for the exact scenario where you can get a example and edit it immediately
