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.

Refering to a person who believes you cannot prove nor disprove an ultimate reality, specificaly in deity's

Also sometimes refered to as "weak atheists" although that is incorrect.
The term 'agnosticism' was coined by Professor T.H. Huxley at a meeting of the Metaphysical Society in 1876. He defined an agnostic as someone who disclaimed both ("strong") atheism and theism, and who believed that the question of whether a higher power existed was unsolved and insoluble. Another way of putting it is that an agnostic is someone who believes that we do not know for sure whether God exists. Some agnostics believe that we can never know.

"Weak atheism" is simple scepticism; disbelief in the existence of God.

One who believes that it is impossible to prove whether a supreme being (or a 'God') exists or not. An individualist who has finally realised that the statement 'Billions of mindless drones can't be wrong' is bull.

Someone who would like proof of God before devoting their whole life to him/her, but acknowledges that there is a possibility God exists. They often believe that people who state either 'yes' or 'no' are too close-minded.
An agnostic does not have proof that God exists. They look for it, but more often than not never find it.
