Don't know.

Like this quote though:

Quote

Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature.
Carl Sagan


Guess I'm an atheist.

There is more than just those 3 you know.

I'm antitheist.

Antitheism may be adopted as a label by those who take the view that theism is dangerous or destructive.

Realised that  -just changed it original.gif

Abrahamic Antitheism also sounds like quite an attractive proposition.

Nah, there is a difference. Atheists don't know if God exists. Antitheists don't care (at least I don't), but do think that religion causes much more harm than good.

Myself, I know for certain that my being, self and future aren't at the behest of some almighty, and when I die my body will simply transfer its energy to the ground and life will go on. Nothing could be more amazing.

I could never be a theist, and try and balance my own eternal life against the suffering of millions. It has no justification. I would be happy to be wrong and not go to heaven.

I think you've got those two mixed up. Atheists do NOT believe there is a God and apathetic while an atitheist is actively or vehemently against the belief in God.

Sorry about my mistake when I first posted. The poll thing on this forum works kind of funny. But I fixed it as soon as I noticed. original.gif

My line of thinking of only the three choices was you either:

-Don't believe there is a god of any kind
-Believe there is a god (Take your pick but a creator of all things, all knowing, eternal, etc...)
-Not sure if there is a god

I realize there are other choices out there but those 3 I feel pretty much go right to the point.

I'm an agnostic atheist. I don't believe we can know whether or not god exists, therefore I'm agnostic, but I personally don't believe he does, therefore I'm an atheist.
