the problem is that people DO NOT BELIEVE but don't want to be part of "those people" that all their pseudochristian family looks down on
it's basically a case of "being one of the majority" or not
real christians are dumb as shit, you have to be, just like we'd think a kid who believe azeroth and the titans were real is dumb.
the average christian just goes with the flow, refuses to step on toes or be part of the minority, but is no more christian than me or anyone else who thinks it's all a joke
You're basically saying we can invent terms for what we believe in, regardless of what those terms actually mean, as long as WE know what it means, deep down inside.
Just because it's a "matter of faith" doesn't mean it has protection from criticism. It would be like me claiming to be the King of England. I could claim it all I like, and get really upset about it when people question me, but at the end of the day, I still wouldn't be the King of England.
I don't believe in religious bullcraps but at the same time i'm not 100% confident that doesn't exists a super-entity whatever ...
Everything works so much fine and in total balance that i can't be really sure that this odd (0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000....1%) random chance happened
Thus i define myself an Agnostic. I don't know so i don't really care. But i still get really mad at religious tards
Human written books hardly are the truth, wake up!
(i'm more interested in why caverns man were painting aliens all over the world tbh)

This sounds like a hostile takeover of ideologies to me. You believe or know god exists, you are theist. You believe or know god doesn't exist, you are an atheist. You don't know either way, you are an atheist? If the opposite of theism is atheism, that they have to be opposites, there has to be a position that doesn't know either way that is theistic but that isn't true.
To an "agnostic" (agnostic atheist): Does he? No. Could he? Yes.
Theism is believing in a God.
Atheism is NOT disbelieving in a God. It's not believing in theism.
| | <- this is theism
Everything else out here is atheism. This includes agnostics who don't believe in God. You are theistic or you are not. If you are not, you are atheistic, regardless of how loudly you scream at people that you're agnostic and not atheist. If you really want to tell people you're agnostic and not atheist, what you're telling them is that you believe in God, you just can't prove it. At least, that's what you're telling people who understand these definitions.
I consider myself agnostic and when people ask me about my beliefs I tell them just that. If they don't know what agnosticism is I explain my stance on it. I'm not so passionate about it to tell them I am an agnostic theist. I dont need to be throwing words around like the most knowledgeable person out there in a casual conversation, actual debates are a different story. And to tell people they dont "know" about something like religion which is based on faith or the lack of it, is pretty dumb, to be quite honest.
Agnostics are worse than Christians. At least Christians can say what they believe, Agnostics are just losers that are too stupid to decide.
Personally, I'm a poly-atheist; I don't believe in any gods at all.
