Someone who does not think there is enough evidence to prove or disprove God's existence. It's a valid viewpoint.

Some people say agnostics can't make up their mind or do their research on what to believe. I did my research on different religions and philosphical beliefs, and I made up my mind. And now I'm an agnostic. Deal with it.

Oh, and agnosticism isn't weak atheism. Atheism is believing that there is no God. You can be an agnostic athiest - one who doesn't believe in God. You can an agnostic deist - one who believes in a higher power. What you believe is different from what you know.

An agnostic is somebody who believes in agnocism. Which is a belief that there might or might not be a God. They don't live by strict religious rules, but are not atheist assholes. unfortunately agnostics are rejected by both atheists and religious peoples, but religious people tend to be more understanding towards them. Agnostics do worry about an afterlife unlike atheist that think people just stop existing after death (sucks to be a dead atheist). Agnostic people are more open minded than atheists and are a lot less annoying since they don't call their opinions facts all the time.
1. Matt Groening may be an agnostic, but at least he's not an atheist like that jerk Seth MacFarlane.
2. Atheist: You're agnostic right? Tell these catholic nerds that there is no God and that they are stupid for not sinning.

Agnostic: I can't say that because there is no proof that God does not exist, I'm just not sure which religion is right!
Atheist: The fuhrer will be very unpleased with you, how dare you disagree with me! Everything I say is fact! If there was a God I'd be him.
Agnostic: Right, why don't you sleep on it.
Atheist: We shall one day take over the Earth and when we do you religious peoples and agnostics will suffer!

One who subscribes to doubt in regards to deities.
The agnostic concluded that their was no way to tell if God or gods existed, thefore he stopped trying to find out.

One who chooses doubt or uncertainty as a philosophy of life.
He is an agnostic. He'll never be sure about religion or irreligion.

n. One who neither acknowledges nor refutes the existence of God
The Agnostic didn't worry about the afterlife, only that which he was living

Agnosticism, contrary to popular definitions, is not a belief. on the belief system you have theism and atheism. Agnosticism is in the knowledge system with gnosticism. Now you can combine these two. Agnosticism means without knowledge, and gnosticism is with knowledge. So you can be an agnostic atheist, an agnostic theist, a gnostic atheist, and a gnostic theist. You can't be just a plain old agnostic.
"I'm an agnostic"
"Agnostic what? agnostic christian, agnostic atheist, agnostic muslim, or what? Please tell."

It's Greek, and it literally means "without knowledge." (a=without, gnossos=knowledge). An antipathy towards religion and/or the existence of God.
More and more young people in the West are considering themselves agnostic.

----------------The Biological Hierarchy of Intelligence----------------------------------------------------------------------------
(In reverse order of intelligence)

The Bacterium:
Is minimally conscious of its surroundings and lives to replicate itself.

The Plant:
Is also minimally conscious of its surroundings, although more so than the bacterium, and it acts as a medium by which sunlight is transformed into energy for an ecosystem.

The Theist:
A delusional creature that refuses to study and become aware of its surroundings. It lives with the sole purpose of brainwashing others into accepting its ridiculous beliefs.

The Household Mosquito:
Semi-intelligent creature, the household mosquito is sometimes capable of successfully extracting blood from a host and avoiding being crushed by hands, newspapers and other household items.

The Sub-Saharan Elephant:
An exquisite creature with admirable intelligence. It is capable of seeking out pools of water from miles away.

The Atheist:
Widely considered the second smartest specie on Earth, the atheist battles the evils of religion.

The Agnostic:
Without doubt, the smartest creature on Earth. Agnostics realize that theists, are simply not worth arguing with.

Hey prof! Can you explain the Theory of Evolution?

Professor of biology at Stanford University:

Sure Billy! First, there was bacteria. They involved into plants, which evolved into the theists, which involved into household mosquitoes.


Oh, but where do atheists, agnostics and Sub-Saharan Elephants come from?

They didn't evolve Billy, they were always smart.
