Another way to say that you're agnostic
, which is a polite way to say that you don't believe in God, and is far too often confused with atheism
, which means you don't believe in ANY religion. What's important is that none of these terms relate to having a religious belief, rather they signify a lack of belief.
Chris:"So, you're an atheist? Why do you worship Satan?"
Norm:"No, atheists don't worship Satan, and I never said I was an atheist."
Chris:"So, you're agnostic? That's almost as bad as being atheist!"
Norm:"No, you're confusing your terms."
Chris:"So what DO you believe?"
Norm:*sigh* "You know what? Let's just call it being a free thinker. OK? I'm not atheist, or agnostic, or satanist, which you're confusing them all with; I'm a free thinker."
Chris:"Well, OK, that doesn't sound so bad."
