Lacking belief is not asserting that something is definitively not true. The atheist position doesn't require any assertion. To be an atheist is to simply not believe.

I don't believe that leprechauns are real but I do not claim to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that they do not. I am an aleprechaunist.


I won't argue with that. I just mean when a poster here said he was agnostic, I didn't necessarily mean the same as he was atheist. I don't see them as the same, but I don't have a strong position about it.

I meant to assert that there is room in Christianity for levels of doubt.
Also, I'm leprechaun agnostic.
