Actually, if you don't actively believe in at least one god your beliefs are not theistic, therefore they are atheistic. Agnostic is just a word used by people trying to claim a non-existent middle ground.

There is a middle ground, it just doesn't have a formal name.

We call it the I don't give a shit either way belief.

Well, no. See, if you don't believe in God, you're not a Christian, you don't believe in Allah you're not a Muslim, and so on. Bottom line, if you don't actively believe in at least one god you are not a theist, hence the term a-theism. People just don't like calling themselves that because it lumps them in with all those kids in school who kept ranting about how evil religion was because it made them feel special.

I definitely believe in God, but I'm not one of them super religious nuts who believe you should have the Bible memorized. I also honestly don't care what others believe or do not believe in. I also don't take kindly to people who try to push their beliefs/nonbeliefs, or who think I'm a dumbass based on my religious beliefs

I know there are things beyond human comprehension and accept we do not know if there is a god or not so don't take too much time dwelling on it.

Had to make an emergency Vet run earlier my dog cut herself on glass and bled heavily due to the muscle tissue having a deep cut. Just spent 2 hours scrubbing blood off the porch and basement floor, damn it started as an awesome day (range, wings, my paycheck came in.) Then it went to shit.
