2. Somebody who can't decide whether there is a deific force. Generally caused by not giving a shit.
3. The person who has the position of "it's just as valid a position to say that the sun will rise in the west tomorrow as it is that it will rise in the east," only replace "the sun will rise in the west tomorrow" with "magical sky pixies exist" and "it will rise in the east" with "they don't." Widely reviled by most other people. A beloved theological position of solipsists, relativists and other irrationalists.
2. Many people just don't give enough of a shit to stop being agnostic.
3. Ugh, this agnostic guy keeps butting in on arguments about the existence of a deity by saying "it's just as plausible that there's an invisible leprechaun who can't be proven as there not being an invisible leprechaun that can't be proven, so don't argue that believing in an unproven invisible leprechaun is stupid."
Agnostics on religion (Christianity, Islam, Buddhists, etc): Religious zealots are often viewed as ignorant by agnostics’ because of their blind following of a supreme being which may or may not exist. Agnostics will often question the existence of a supreme power because a lot of modern religious beliefs have no basis in modern logic; therefore blind following of popular religions is viewed as an easy out for people who chose not to think for themselves.
Agnostics on atheism: On the other end of the spectrum, unlike atheists, an agnostic uses a more scientific approach to their belief system. An agnostic knows that just because there is no physical proof of the existence of a higher being, it dose not automatically mean that one does not exist. An agnostic views an atheist on the same plane as a religious zealot; often because the belief that human beings are the pinnacle of intelligence and there are few things that we do not or have the potential to understand.
The realization of knowing that “we cannot know everything” is the backbone of the agnostic belief.
Agnostic: Prove it.
Athiest: There is no way that a god can exist.
Agnostic: Prove it.
It is often said that agnosticism is a stepping stone to atheism. There is truth to this, as often the transition from theism to atheism is travelled through agnosticism. However, this is not the only form of agnosticism. Agnosticism can also develop as a rejection of both atheism and theism, for a number of reasons. All three discuss divinity in different ways, so it is foolish to say that agnosticism is simply a stepping stone to atheism, or undecided secularism.
She calls herself an agnostic instead of atheist, because she finds them disagreeable.
2. Someone who neither believes fully that God exists nor that s/he does not exist. This is the more common usage. Note that such a person can be neither an atheist or a theist.
