Robert Ezell Posted over 3 years ago Atheists also beleive. Not all atheists believe there is no god. A theist is one who believes that some god(s) actually exist. An atheist is the logical negation of a theist; that is, one for whom it is not the case that they believe some god(s) actually exist. I agree that agnosticism is a good approach. Agnosticism deals with knowledge, not belief. One can claim to know a claim is true or false, and be a gnostic... or they can say they dont know and be an agnostic. I, for example, am an agnostic atheist. If there actually exists some god(s), I'd love to find out. As of yet, I haven't encountered any good reason or evidence to justify that there actually exists some god(s). If I ever do, I'll become a theist. I just get tired of all the straw-manning of the atheist position that abounds around here.
