I would be described as an agnostic atheist - agnostic because I know that there is a possibility (theoretically) that a god could exist and also due to the difference in definitions of god (I could believe in a certain type of god) and atheist because I do not believe that any of the religious deities that are portrayed by religions today exist.

People need to realize that religion is nothing more than belief. And belief is nothing more than hope. Everyone is at least agnostic, even though they wouldnt admit it.
For all those who "hope" in god you could easily prove to non-believers that one exists. As soon as you know in god, you show us why you know in god. Then we will all know in god. Until then, you only believe. Belief is not knowledge!
So the fact that everything at this time cannot be explained through scientific method means that God exists? All that means is that we dont understand the scientific mechanisms yet not that some Omni done it all.

Instead I will point out that people say that science proves there is no need for god to exist. Well in that case when they can explain why + attracts - then I might agree with their point more. And don't say because of the electromagnetic force, as we don't know why that exists. Science generally explains what happens, at a large enough scale why something happens but on a microscopic scale we do not.
