A. One who believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God.
B. One who is skeptical about the existence of God but does not profess true atheism.
2. One who is doubtful or noncommittal about something.
One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.
They have two separate meanings, according to thefreedictionary.Com
and they are both wrong,
Only Islam is right, There is a God, because where else could the universe have come from?
And Muhammad (saw) is His Last Prophet because he was given a Book that no one can imitate,
The Quran is the Word of God and proof that God exists and that Muhammad (saw) is His Last Prophet Alhumdulillah
Atheist say the universe put itself together and slime mutated into a human being over the magic word millions of years
the agnostic says maybe, maybe not?
Both are wrong
become a Muslim today and you will go to heaven forever inshallah
become an atheist or agnostic and you will burn in hell forever inshallah
It makes sense that you can believe that there is a god or goddess without knowing who or what that God or goddess actually is but the words agnostic atheist obviously contradict themselves! Agnostic atheist are two different things agnostic, means you believe in a deity and atheist means that you don't believe in anything, seriously people!!! What has the world come to?
There are varying levels of atheism. An agnostic atheist is simply someone who doesn't believe in a god(s), but doesn't know for sure one way or the other. I think it's important to keep in mind the terms "believe" and "know" when referring to agnosticism and atheism. Either way, there is no contradiction here.
Agnosticism is a position on KNOWLEDGE not belief. Atheism is a position on belief. These are not mutually exclusive.
An agnostic is a person who thinks that the existence of a god cannot be proven with certainty or is inherently unknowable. It has nothing to do with whether that person believes in a god or not. It's opposite, gnosticism, is actually very rare for theists and atheists alike.
An atheist is a person who lacks a belief in gods, versus theists who believe in one or more gods.
The combinations are thus:
Agnostic Atheist- Doesn't think a god can be proven/disproven, but doesn't believe due to lack of evidence. Around 9 out of every 10 atheists.
Agnostic Theist- Doesn't think a god can be proven/disproven, but believes in one anyway, usually based on faith. Probably 3 out of every 4 theists or so.
Gnostic Atheist- thinks you can be certain that no gods exist. Rare.
Gnostic theist- thinks you can prove a god exists. Less rare than gnostic atheists, but still not mainstream.
EVERYONE is agnostic to some degree. Though you may believe you are correct, you cannot know for certain if a god (or anything for that matter) does NOT exist. Nothing of the sort can be dis-proven, for example: Can you disprove that there is a pink unicorn in my basement? NO, you can't. It is still illogical to believe there is, however, because it was not proven that there IS a unicorn.
"Agnosticism is the belief that the truth values of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, as well as other religious and metaphysical claims—are unknown."
"Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists."
There isn't any contradiction there. Agnosticism is a position on knowledge or possibility of knowledge of a given topic. Atheism is a position on belief in the existence of a God.
The two can easily be combined without contradiction, as indeed can agnosticism and theism. An agnostic atheist does not claim knowledge on the existence of God, and likely claims that such 'knowledge' is impossible to attain in reality, whilst also not holding and belief in said God. An agnostic theist holds the same position on knowledge, whilst also holding belief in the existence of God.
One can also be a gnostic atheist, or a gnostic theist, which are both *much* stronger and, frankly, irrational positions, wherein certain knowledge of the existence of God is claimed, coupled with either position that God *definitely* does not exist(gnostic atheist), or *definitely* does exist(gnostic theist), in light of said 'knowledge'.
