"The central premise of the novel is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a form of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them dwarves, elves, leprechauns, and other spirits and gods. However, the power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs wane. New gods have arisen, reflecting America's obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among others."


This sounds dreadful. A book about the God of beaners being overran by Tacobell and reefer? No. Just no.

Fun fact: Agnostic technically meant that a person believed in some sort of higher power, but believed that they were too powerful for us to know anything about them, meaning it used to be leaning more away from atheism until everybody who didn't want to piss off their relatives by saying that they were atheist called themselves agnostic
tl;dr: agnostics are becoming more and more pussies

that is not "technically" what agnostic means at all.
ag·nos·tic
agˈnästik/Submit
noun
1.
a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.

tl;dr agnosticism literally means no knowledge.

>Implying agnostic is a thing on its own

It's either agnostic theist or agnostic atheist. Sure you can call yourself what you want but the simplest most legit way is atheist or theist. I know what people are going to say "oh I can't prove 100% there is no god therefore I'm agnostic" congrats that's pretty much similar to "I can not disprove god. But since no won has proved his existence similar to unicorn. I do not believe him, I'm an atheist" saying you're agnostic doesn't tell me ****.

TL;DR There is no such thing as JUST agnostic. It's either agnostic theirs or agnostic athiest

I respectfully disagree with you. I'm an agnostic because I believe there is no proof that a higher power exists nor there is proof that one does not, but largely I don't think it matters. Wikipedia tells me this is pragmatic agnosticism, so I'll rely on it for now until I have more time to google, and so did my Religious Studies teacher quite a few years ago.

Eh I think its really blurry because I can say the same thing just with atheist. You don't have to be like I KNOW FO SHIZZLE THERE IS NO GOZZLE. It its the act of not believing. You see we can't disprove unicorn (its impossible to disprove a negative) but what we can say is there is no reason we should believe because there is no evidence provided.

But that's not what an atheist is. An atheist believes there is no higher power. In your words, they KNOW FO SHIZZLE THERE IS NO GOZZLE. Sure, they don't have to be dicks about it, but that's what atheism is: rejecting the existence of a higher power.

That's true, but your position is weaker than the absolute of atheism, and can't be defined as such. "True" atheism would be rejecting the existence of god, even in light of new evidence. If your belief is that until there is further evidence you cannot know if a god exists, or that you do not believe in a higher power but don't claim to know for certain, it is agnosticism.

I think ill call myself an agnostic atheist then because I do see your point but atheism at its core is just "disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods." To me you don't have to reject god, but in one way I am but in another I'm not. I am open but i still don't believe.

The only arrogant thing i see here is the picture itself. There is nothing arrogant about not believing in God/gods or self-centered about believing in one/them. They're both just ways to interpret the world around you. The arrogant or self-centered thing is thinking you're better than someone else for your beliefs.

If you are using the definition of agnostic correctly, then everyone is agnostic.
You can be Agnostic-Christian, or Agnostic-Atheist, but saying just "Agnostic" doesn't really make sense, because the lack of belief and knowledge in a god or gods is atheism, by definition.
(by the way, atheism is not the belief that there is no god. It's the lack of belief in a god. lack of belief =/= belief. big difference.)

Agnosticism isn't even a religious preference. It just describes what you know.

And since it's impossible to know if there is a god, literally everyone is agnostic.

You're so wrong that it hurts.

Agnosticism is a blanket-term for five categories. You listed two: Agnostic Theism and Agnostic Atheism. The other three are...

Apathetic agnosticism: "If there is a God, he's obviously not interacting directly with us anymore, so who cares?"
Hard agnosticism: "There is no possible way that we will ever know if a God exists or not."
Soft agnosticism: "I don't know if a God exists or not, but someday, we may find evidence that will allow us to make a claim."

Stupid people find out about the first two, and instantly assume that there's only those two options. Atheists were actually the ones who started spreading this mindset in order to get more people under their banner, and that shows just how much of a cult atheism is becoming. They criticize Christians for spreading misinformation to bolster their beliefs, and go ahead and do the same.

"Atheists were actually the ones who started spreading this mindset in order to get more people under their banner, and that shows just how much of a cult atheism is becoming."

Oh get over yourself. It's the result of the 4 point scale which uses modern definitions to develop a framework, instead of working with severely lacking older ones without framework, and can describe every position on the scale so its descriptive power is enormous.

Whether you agree with it is another matter but has nothing to do with an "atheism-cult", but modern philosophy.

Alright, let me hit you with some knowledge. I'm agnostic. It's not because I'm an atheist afraid to admit it. It's because if there's one thing I know for sure about religion, it's that I don't know a DAMN thing about religion. I don't know if there is or is not a God, and so the only logical thing to do is admit that I don't know jack **** until I learn the truth.

I see where you're coming from, that's how I feel too, but I've studied enough about the universe and human interaction to feel comfortable with myself in coming to a conclusion of what I think is surely the most likely thing. I think it's important to come to peace with something you truly believe one way or the other.

Most people do that , I just dislike religions that inhibit scientific progress and indoctrinate children forcefully. I find Christianity to do both of these things the most ,at least in the US.
And I find Buddhism to do these the least. Maybe it because Christianity has more radicals, or perhaps because of their values.

Christianity as a whole isn't what you're making it out to be, buddy.
There's tons of sub-religions within Christianity. Baptist, Pentecostal, Protestant, Catholicism, etc.
Then there are the cults that have Christianity as a front, and pretend to be what they are not. Mormonism, Westboro Baptist Church, etc. Yes. Westboro is so bad, they're a whole sub-religion on their own.

The next time you feel like tipping that fedora and bashing a religion, please try to have some knowledge of it before doing so.
I've yet to meet a Christian who "inhibits scientific progress." -- And no child is forced to be a part of the religion, sure parents can tell their kids they have to go, but it's not like the members of the church are beating kids up for not listening.
I mean, really... That could have passed back in the middle ages, but not today.

Sure their explanation for how we are here differs from your point of view, and many others, but it surely isn't inhibiting scientific progress.
If Christianity does so, then Deism, Theism, and Monotheism do as well. You can't pick on one without picking on them all. So again, please study up on something before attempting to bash on it.

"dislike religions that inhibit scientific progress and indoctrinate children forcefully."

I think you'll find Islam is the worst at this, not Christianity

Regardless of what you beleive (theism, atheism, etc...) you should feel comfortable enough in your beliefs to allow others to practice their own. If an individual is so caught up in trying to disprove the beliefs of others, all it really shows is that said individual is not confident in their worldview, and feels threatened by the worldviews of others. If you are a true believer of whatever worldview you choose, the choices of other should have no affect on your own resolve. As long as you are respecting the common ideals of liberty, justice, and respect for others, you should be free to worship as you please.

The problem lies exactly in that. People with different worldviews have different morals. These morals affect people's everyday life.

Because of the moral differences we can't improve life (human/animal) in certain areas.

For instance we could mitigate world hunger by growing meat (just the meat, not the whole animal) in laboratories. And we could end world hunger engineering gene manipulated crops which grow in harsh enviroments and have a resistance against pests.

We could also improve human life allowing abortions and use of condoms. And of course allowing euthanasia for terminally ill patients.

In my opinion people should care the environment and each others more because those are the only things that matter. Life is fragile and only lasts for a lifetime.

I agree to a point, but there's some things you're forgetting.

Oftentimes, they're just trying to help. They believe they've found the path to success and that all others are doomed to failure. They're trying to show you the problems on your map. They're genuinely trying to help you out of love and kindness. They're going out of their way to try to help you.

In addition, spreading the word is a key tenet in many religions. If you follow, you're obligated to try to bring others to your side. You can't just sit idly by even if the non-believers aren't affecting you in any way.

Yes, however in some things, like atheism, I don't see why it matters what someone else believes. If you don't believe in life after death, why should you make fun of someone who does? If you don't think there is a God, why try to take the faith and hope out of someone who believes in something better? To me, it doesn't make sense.

Because you want what's best for the world.

*The following is not a reflection of my own beliefs*

You believe religious thought is hindering our progress as a society. You see how the Church sought to quiet Galileo and the Creationism vs evolution debates as evidence that religion is holding us back from our full potential. Even when not in direct conflict you still see problems. You see every hour spent in church as an hour that could have been better spent feeding the hungry or developing new technology. Instead of working to better our world, they're focused on getting onto a cloud and spending eternity with a guy who looks like a ZZ Top roadie. If only you could get them to see the foolishness of their ways, the world would be a much better place for us all.

As well, if an atheist stands against religion, he will always paint it in negative light. The same way a theist will always paint atheists in negative light. It's how it works. You need to get an agnostic, or non-theist (which isn't the same as atheist) to bridge the gap between the two. It's kind of like sitting there and accepting what North Korea says at face value. The only way you'll listen is if you're an easily impressionable fool, or don't know better.

The same way Feminists are the reason women should be shot on sight, furries are an abomination amongst mankind, the rich are always one dimensional and inhuman, and blacks are obsolete farm equipment.

I don't see any relationship between these and the quoted sentence. Have you seen the video? Just go from 6:10 to about 21:10, 15 minutes of your day. Sure, religion might make people feel a little better about themselves sometimes but clearly its presence in the tangible world has been more negative than positive.

Uh huh. Like when Christianity single-handedly stopped science from disappearing during the medieval era in europe, right? See, the thing you're not getting is that religion only provides religion for whomever likes it. The religion itself doesn't do any bad. To assume so is to assume that guns are the reason people are killed, and eating utensils make people fat.

If your parent is devoutly mormon, to the point of militantism, the problem is in the people, not the religion.

You are at an impressive point of denial to deny religion has any part in that. Tell me how exactly it is that religion has ONLY positive repercussions, given these;
Atheist parents are denied custody of their children explicitly on the basis that they are atheist.
Biology classes all over America still have to battle to teach evolution, which by now is a fact with overwhelming evidence. Evolution is the most fundamental basis for humans to understand humans.
Thousands of people die of aids in Africa because the catholic church is teaching them that using condoms will make them burn in hell. Tell me whose fault that one is.
I could go on but moral of the story is religion DOES have a negative impact on the world. Of course religion doesn't kill people: It needs people, stupid people like the catholic priests who rape children and tell them that it's the will of god, like the parents of those gay kids, to carry out its stupid rules, like "no homos aloud" and so forth. Saying that it's not religion's fault, saying what you JUST SAID, is like saying "Hitler didn't kill any Jews. The Nazis did. Therefore, Hitler had no hand in the holocaust."

Goodwins law, eventually Nazi's will be brought into an argument to gain sway in your favor. Nice, but no dice.
Wanna go off that last one there? Religion teaches these things into impressionable people who are probably afraid. They then take these things to extremes because they feel endebted to, or just understand it best. At the end of the day, it's the people who are taught a specific mindset that end up acting like assholes. Religion is a tool, much like a gun or a knive, or a fork, or perhaps even to go as far as congress or a judge. They act on the behalf of something.
Also, The hitler analogy was ****, he directly ordered their deaths. The only spot that condemns homosexuality is leviticus, which was over-ruled when Jesus gave his life on the cross.
