I usually reply to these 'word meaning' posts, --- I was born godless, raised godless, still godless, - Call me whatever you want except too late for my dinner; and I never think about god questions till someone else brings it up and then I wish they hadn't as its totally gobbledegooky meaninglessnessing to me
As you may already know, you earn website points, and help other members get to know you better, when you upload a recent, clear photo of only you, write an informational profile that includes your hobbies and interests, and answer all the profile questions, since that's the first place many people look when they see a new member.
The website uses your profile to find member matches, so the more details you include, the better the match.
As you probably also know, you make comments and write your own posts to earn more points and privileges. You get different perks with each level, and when you reach level eight you get an agnostic T-shirt. You have already made many points with your comments.
In case you don't know already, to find members near you, click on the "Meet" button at the top of the page, then on "Members," and enter your preferred search parameters.
Or click on the "About" button at the top of the page to find links to FAQ or the website tutorial.

Levels are mostly a way to help identify and reward those who contribute to the growth of the community. The website also gives more access and benefits depending on level. [agnostic.com]

I've stopped using the term agnostic all together, it just started getting annoying. I'm also sick of people not understanding the burden of proof and equating being unconvinced about something to believing the opposite. On some definitions of the word, god is unknownable. How do they know that? Is that not assuming there is one and then making an observation of it? The term is useless to me as is the term spiritual.
And we are also back to @themiddleway wrongly assuming that if you do not believe that theist claims are true, you are claiming that there are no gods. Just because you do not believe that something is true, does not mean you believe that it is false.
Like in court, you find the defendant guilty or not guilty. You are only addressing one prong of the argument. On the evidence I have been presented with, I find god/s not guilty of existing. Should sufficient evidence appear to convince me otherwise then I will change my verdict.
I hate to be the one stepping on the Easter eggs, but I do get a kick out of pissing on buildings with the lower case letter t on them. It's something you gotta ask yourself. To me. No there's no such thing as God. I've never believed or pretended it exist. I can only say so much at the time being, but there are people so fucked up mentally it's a shame. That's all I have to say. ?
@themiddleway I’d like to hear your thoughts on this. I enjoy your perspective but when you split hairs over agnostic vs atheist I believe you’re arguing against “gnostic atheism,” as shown here, correct? I think it would be helpful if you acknowledged the distinction because speaking as though agnostic and atheist are mutually exclusive is fairly misleading.
