Richard Dawkins: Militant atheism
I consider myself agnostic because of the definitions I've heard of it. I've heard agnosticism described as either (1) not knowing if there is a god or (2) not believing such knowledge is within the realm of human understanding. Both definitions apply to me. It really chafes my sack when people ascribe motivations to people they don't know, all the more so when it's done to me. I'm not being polite to religious people by calling myself agnostic instead of atheist. I'm just not an atheist. I do like the idea of taking the fight to religion because, f#ck religion.
