Welcome to Ignosticism
Until there is a clear and unambiguous definition of the term "god", it doesn't really make sense to be anywhere on the scale.
I think this is the fundamental argument for your current transition into ignosticism - which everyone should, if they're honest to themselves, have this position.
A belief in god/s not only requires faith that there is something that can be refered to as a god (whatever that means), but, if you pick one particualr religion, you must have faith in every human being that testified to the veracity of the scriptures they're preaching about.
To me, it's not so much as "you have faith in god," it's "you have faith in who ever exposed you to a particular god concept."
And since humans are full of shit, it's safe to assume that humans have always been full of shit.
In any case, I have always been skeptical of religion, and thus god/s, so I can't fully grasp the conversion crisis you must be feeling. If it was up to me, I'd just tell you, "Stop it dude, just stop giving a fuck," but I can imagine that doesn't help in the least. So I'm out of ideas, but not pot. So if you ever want to convert to Rastafarian, I will gladly help you in that conversion.
Good luck bro...
