I made this very simple. Not trying to influence the results. Just curious.

How would you describe your beliefs?

Good poll. Seems you've made the distinction I'd like to see. Not that the Briebart System applies to me, being an agnostic apatheist.

I did get the idea from you, I hope you don't think I stole it. I just go for the KISS method.

@barjoe Completely different idea though. I was basically asking agnostics if they'd prefer not being called atheists as postulated by Dawkins and Brietbart.

The last response was a gnostic atheist disqualifier, knowing they'd have to respond even though it didn't apply to them.


I prefer not using "belief". I know some things but that does not, in my opinion, quality me for theist, yet, it would disqualify me from atheist.

If I had said disbelief, I'd be leading people on. In my case "disbelief" is more accurate.


I am an agnostic but leading the way to be an atheist somehow on some certain circumstances 🙂


Best I can figure, Atheist, Agnostic, and Theist are most often referring to various levels of belief in literal God persons, and I'm not a religious literalist, so I don't feel at home in any of those categories.

I believe that gods are personifications of things/forces/systems that do exist in the natural world ( for example: God = Universe ) so I guess that makes me a religious figuratist, and probably a pantheist.

I do believe the universe exists, and I do believe figures of speech, such as personification, exist, and are useful. So some might call me a theist.

I don't think we can really know anything for certain, so some might call me an agnostic.

And I see no evidence whatsoever that a literal man-in-the-sky-who-created-everything exists, so some would call me an atheist.

But I consider myself to be devoutly religious, so call me what you will. I'll call me a human.

Anti-theist so far as religion is concerned atheist in relation to gods and the supernatural.
