Top definition
One who professes ignorance on the knowledge of whether or not any gods exist, or even what the term means. It is a play on the words "ignorant" (to lack knowledge) and "gnostic," (knowledge pertaining to gods).

Ignosticism is sometimes compared to theological noncognitivism, and while one may be both an ignostic and a theological noncognitivist, they aren't mutually inclusive. It is also often compared to agnosticism, and nontheism in general. Most ignostics would be categorized as "weak" or "negative" atheists.

Not knowing if there is a god or not. You choose not to believe in a god because you don't have proof.
Are you atheist??

No, I'm ignostic. There may be a god, but theres no proof.
