agnostics confuse me to be honest
Sometimes I think agnostics claim to be agnostic based on a false or skewed definition of atheist.

As an atheist I view the concept of a god as illogical I also see that I cannot know a god doesn't exist. I never claimed to know god doesn't exist I simply do not have belief one does.

atheist : one who lacks belief in a deity

I was not aware I had to know a god doesn't exist in order to be atheist.

Re: Are We All "Agnostics"?
then I suppose, technically, you're not an atheist.
I disagree all atheist means is not theist which means an atheist has no belief in a god.

If you don't know then you obviously lack belief in a god.

Could we say Agnostic is a type of atheist?
