Hi, this is a quick and simple question: what is the difference between agnostic and atheist?
I think one could argue that we are all agnositc. Because not one human being on this planet truly KNOWS and can prove that a supreme being exists. One can also say that no one truly KNOWS and can prove that a supreme being doesn't exist.
It comes down to those who disregard what we know of the natural world through science, experience and observation, so they can continue a belief system started long before we had any of that knowledge, and those who don't disregard it.
Domzila got the closest on this one. Kudos!
Atheism in Greek is "a (without) + theism (gods)" and refers to having no belief in any gods. Agnosticism in Greek is "a (without) + gnosis (knowledge)" meaning a person who has no knowledge of any gods.
The two are not mutually exclusive. I consider myself an agnostic atheist. I have no knowledge of any gods; therefore, I do not believe in them.
agnostic = is unsure of what to believe. they may believe in something. for instance I believe there's something after death, but I dont know what. I believe in ghosts and that some people can communicate with the dead.
atheist = believes in nothing.
An atheist doesn't believe, an agnostic thinks there isn't enough evidence to prove or disprove the existence of God so they reserve making a judgement so by default they don't believe.
An agnostic is still decideing whether or not to belive in a higher power. And an athiest belives that there is no higher power.
a agnostic person believes there is something more , a atheist thinks there is no higher being
got it. thanks guys
