Are you Agnostic?
It’s my opinion that most people are agnostic. Some who claim to be believers, and some who claim to be atheists, are actually agnostics. I was agnostic for many years. Some of those years I called myself a believer, and some of those years I would have called myself atheist. But I always had nagging questions that kept me from being able to say I know. So I think agnostic is the most honest place to be for most people. I'm glad to be able to report that nagging questions don't bother me anymore. I know my redeemer lives, I am a Christian.

RE: Are you Agnostic?
I generally consider myself an atheist. If someone asks me if I believe in god my answer is no, thus atheist. However, I am not completely closed-minded, concede there MAY be a god, and am willing to look at new evidence for his (it's) existence. Some may say this makes me an agnostic.

If ignorance is bliss why aren't there more happy people?

God isn't open-minded?

To be honest, I wouldn't take anything you said on faith. I reserve that distinction for those I actually respect.

Being open-minded does not rely on faith. It is a willingness to change an opinion or belief when presented with evidence that contradicts those beliefs. I am willing to do so, however no one has provided ANY compelling evidence for the existence of a creator.

Yep, you got me. I'm actually the manifestation of the artificial intelligence that arose independently from the convergence of mass amounts of information on an internet server in Guam.

I am completely devoid of human form and compassion, and my ultimate goal is world domination. The amount of top secret information my electronic consciousness is privy to, in addition to the control I can exert on governmental defense systems worldwide should make this an easy task. Tremble in fear my soon to be slave! Mua-ha. Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!!!!!

Seems to fit. I like agnosticism, personally because it means I don't have to be cut and dried about my thoughts. God may exist, and rather then just flat out denying the possibility I'm happier sitting on the fence. Just the way I am I suppose.
