very very very basically, agnostics believe there is a higher power but they don't really know what it is, atheists think there is no higher power at all.

Thanks guys, I was wondering exactly what the TS asked.

Woot, I'm Agnostic.
It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty

Atheist is the belief there is no God or higher power. Agnostics doubt the existence of a god.

Atheism is a religion.
I see no sign of fortress.
#7
Agnostics believe that it is impossible to determine whether or not God exists.

i thought agnostic means you dont beileve in god no matter how much proof there is and atheist's are not convinced till they see proof?

Atheists know how to use the search bar.


Also, they don't make as many threads on impossible topics for the Pit.

Quote by green room
okay and is antichrist a religion? and why would people practice it?


I don't know that "antichrist" is actually a religion. If it was, it would have almost no serious followers because it doesn't really mean anything to just worship the opposite of another religion and to say that evil is actually good. Satanism is an actual religion, this could possibly be what you were thinking? But satanism is completely unrelated to christianity, contrary to popular belief.

As far as I've thought, agnosticism is "I don't think there's a god" and atheism is "there is no god." I guess if I had to choose I'd say I'm atheist, I do not believe in god.

Atheism is not a religion because it is not based on a belief. It the denial of beliefs.

No it isn't.

And there's a religion thread. It's stickied right at the top of The Pit. Try it next time.

BTW, agnosticism means that the question of whether God exists or not is beyond our knowledge.

Well, Agnostics can also be people who believe in a God, but not in organized religion.

Quote by HaKattack
Atheists are much more pretentious about their beliefs.
Hardly. There are plenty of arrogant atheists, myself included, some of which are specifically assholish about their atheological beliefs and some who aren't. But there are a whole lot of self-described "agnostics" (most, hardly in the Huxlian sense) who think they're brilliant for believing whatever it is they profess to believe.

Yeah, Atheists are sure there is no God. Agnostics basically say "we don't know".


Don't they basically say "we don't know and we don't care"? That's what I thought it was, I could be wrong though. Like atheists believe there is no higher power, Agnostics doubt a higher power and don't really care whether or not there is one as it doesn't really affect their lives.

Agnostics are unsure.

Agnostics don't particularly just say they don't know, its usually backed by a "we're not supposed to know" or an "it's not possible to know."
And Atheism isn't always a denial of God's existence. It's just the lack of religious beliefs. This may or may not entail a denial of God. In many cases (such as mine) it's just the complete lack of beliefs, not an explicit denial.

I'm Christian, but I have a hard time to believe in God. I pray and all that, I just sometimes question if he's really there. So, I guess i'm somewhat Agnostic, and a Christian...
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.
#35
Agnostics don't pretend to know for certain whether there is or is not a god, and they generally seem not to care. Atheists rule out the existence of any higher power.

Then you may not be a Christian. If you're doubtful enough, think about it and see what you feel to be true. Most of us are told from birth how to believe, based on surroundings or how adults around us believe. You'd be surprised what you come with agreeing with if you put your original religion aside for awhile and figure it out.

Wikipedia is usually an unreliable source of information because the people who edit it are the sort of people who put what THEY think is right as facts and then shout "Next time use wikipedia" whenever someone asks a question

Okay, I always thought I was agnostic, but reading this thread im not so sure.

I beleive there is a higher thing (which I guess could be seen as me beleiving in a god) but I dont beleive in any of the many religions. So what would that be?

You're nothing. Who cares about labels. As far as I know, you're just areligious. Which spellcheck tells me is not a word (interestingly enough neither is "spellcheck").

Agnostic means you believe we don't know (possibly we can't) know if there is a god. Atheist means you believe there is no god. If you believe there is a god but aren't sure which religion if any is right for you, then you're neither religious nor any of the above.

An Agnostic is someone that doesn't believe in a higher power, simply because there is no solid proof.
An Atheist is someone that doesn't believe in a higher power.
