My personal stance now would be 'weak agnosticism' which means:
The view that the existence or nonexistence of any deities is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable; therefore, one will withhold judgment until/if any evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say, "I don't know whether any deities exist or not, but maybe one day, when there is evidence, we can find something out."

Now why say your an atheist and you dont believe in God when there is NO PROOF of that.
Now why say you believe in religion and there is a God when there is NO PROOF of that.
Now why not say your agnostic and just admit that we DO NOT KNOW if there is a God?
As for the religious people on here i know they will come back and say oh but the bible is proof of God. Actually no its not, God did not write the bible, men did who say they where influenced by God, (Old testament) and im afraid men saying there where influenced by God just isnt good enough. Try passing of something like that in these times it wont go down well i tell ya.
I see what u mean, altho i thought of and atheist as one who says there is no God and will never be
I neither belief or disbielf in God
ascal's Wager (or Pascal's Gambit) is a suggestion posed by the French philosopher, mathematician, and physicist Blaise Pascal that even if the existence of God cannot be determined through reason, a rational person should wager as though God exists, because living life accordingly has everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
The Atheist's Wager is an atheistic response to Blaise Pascal's Wager. While Pascal suggested that it is better to take the chance of believing in a god that might not exist rather than to risk losing infinite happiness by disbelieving in a god that does, the Atheist's Wager suggests that:
You should live your life and try to make the world a better place for your being in it, whether or not you believe in god. If there is no god, you have lost nothing and will be remembered fondly by those you left behind. If there is a benevolent god, he will judge you on your merits and not just on whether or not you believed in him.
Agnostic atheism, also called atheistic agnosticism, is a philosophical position that encompasses both atheism and agnosticism. Agnostic atheists are atheistic because they do not hold a belief in the existence of any deity, and agnostic because they do not claim to know with certainty whether any deity exists. The agnostic atheist may be contrasted with the agnostic theist, who does believe that one or more deities exist but does not claim to have absolute knowledge of such.
