Evid3nc3 Great explanation. Remember: most atheists are consciously or unconsciously Agnostic Atheists. The terms are not mutually exclusive:
Glaucio Alves That's a very acurate and helpful piece of information from you. I used to get confused sometimes when thinking about what definition would best suit my way of seeing that all. But reading about the teapot metaphor from Bertrand Russel some years ago, I agreed that it was impossible to prove that a theistic god doesn't exist - the same for centaurs, elves, fairies etc. And yet it would be unreasonable to believe in this God due to lack of convincing evidence to it. It was Occam's razor principle already working in the back of my mind, though I'd never heard about it before watching your videos. I began to define myself as an agnostic since then, for I defectively reasoned that being atheist was the same as being "absolutely sure about the non-existence of a God" - as if it were scientifically verified with the technology we currently have. Now on seeing the video you just sent, I don't feel inadequate to call myself an atheist anymore. Interesting reasoning... I am an atheist (under the agnostic poing of view). An Atheist. Sounds good to me. It just came to me the guess that there are lots of atheists out there who'll never be conscious that this definition suits them perfectly.
