Don't know.

Like this quote though:

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 :)

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. :)

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.

no, you're absolutely right, should have made that clearer. It wasn't the focus of my post tho, but thanks for pulling me up on it!

But the thing is, I do believe there could be, just not in the form that we're lead to believe in. On top of that, the actual belief system itself can be so detrimental to the individual, to society and to civilisation, so whether I believe or not is irrelevant - hence the "happy not to go to heaven" comment. I simply don't think its worth what it costs us.

I don't care that much for labels; but I would definitely be considered a theist.

I view myself as more of an adopted son per Galations 3:26

26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

PS. I've had some experience with the supernatural, and there's just no denying it. It's real; it's no fairy tale and it's not make believe. Just so you know....
