Any other ignostics here? We seem to be a rare breed, wasn't even one of the options signing up. Ignostic means I've never seen a definition for the word God that made sense to me, it's just a ritual word people define and use as they please, with no more inherent meaning than the word Fod. I see no evidence for supernatural agency in the Universe, so I'm an athiest in the sense that a rock or a dog is an athiest. Since I can't answer the question 'Do you believe in God?' I can't identify as an athiest. I don't care what people believe as long as it doesn't scare the horses. Interesting site, enjoying myself so far. I like cats too.

Learned something new. It's a somewhat fine line or distinction. The photo/cartoon is priceless!!

I learned that term in here and I believe it fits me. I'm a cat person also. Maybe there is a correlation.

yes I think god is a load of crap

Oh shit that prophetic black cat Muriel is the funniest thing I've seen all day!

I'm close. I'd say 'god' has too many meanings and none of them are clear.

Just to clarify:

Ignosticism is the idea that the question of the existence of God is meaningless because the term "god" has no unambiguous definition.

Ignosticism requires a good, non-controversial definition of god before arguing on its existence.

I can classify myself as an ignostic in the sense that if there is no clear definition of 'god' there is no reason to bother discussing it.
The problem is, most people don't know what an ignostic is which causes me to explain it to them possibly leading to a discussion about their god and ignosticism.
I just usually go with atheist unless we're really diving into the heavy stuff. 😉

I think it is fair to say that I am an ignostic atheist. When I ask people to describe what they mean by god they have different, and often times contradictory, incomprehensible descriptions so I don't believe it.

I don't see the term ignostic used much and haven't given it much thought until now so thanks for your post.

Yeah it is. Agnostic is the first option on the left when they ask how you identify at the bottom.

Agnostic and Ignostic are related but not the same thing.

So Ignosticism is the idea that because God is a completely unambiguous idea, that it's useless to argue on it until both people can agree on their definitions of God?

We welcome all freethinkers. Ignostic makes sense to me.
