I'm agnostic because, while I know the bible and stuff isn't really supposed to be taken all that seriously, I don't believe a whole heck of alot of stuff that people say happened. It doesn't seem possible.

I'm also agnostic because I'd like an open mind, so I don't just disprove any religion, though I don't accept it as reality either. I also believe that there is life after death, but I'm not sure what it is, exactly. It could be heaven, it could be ♥♥♥♥♥, it could be paradise or some other crap.

And I do have belief in the supernatural/paranormal. Or a half-belief in it. I've always been interested in Ghosts/Aliens/Cryptids, and I do believe some of the things people see are out there. Only some things may not be exactly as described or something we already know of.

But I don't feel like typing more, so, I'll leave it at that...

Thats me right there, thanks for typing it for me. ;D

Im neither atheist or agnostic, but i respect their viewpoints. I can see (kinda) how those could come about.

Yeah but your not alone. A lot of people use language like that without even knowing.

Atheism and agnosticism are not mutually exclusive terms.  Contrary to popular belief, agnosticism is not this happy intellectual middle ground.  If you don't believe in gods, you are an atheist.  Period.  Atheism and theism refer to what you believe, and gnosticsim and agnosticism refer to what you know.
There is a great explanation of this here:  http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php?title=Atheist_vs._agnostic
Sorry, I know it is knitpicking, but it just annoys me to no end when people who, by definition are atheist, try to avoid the label due to the stigma that theists have placed on it.
I am an atheist and damned proud of it.

Atheism isn't a fairy tale.  It has no dogma and no tenants.  It is simply a response to the claim "God exists."  If your answer to "Does God exist?" is ANYTHING but "yes," you are, by definition, an atheist.  If your stance on the God claim is neutral, you are an atheist.  More specifically, you would be an agnostic atheist, meaning that you don't belive a god exists, but you don't believe a god doesn't exist and you claim no knowledge on the matter.  Atheism is NOT a religion or a system of belief.  It's not a system of anything.

That's really the way it should be, I think.  There shouldn't even be labels for any of this.  We don't have words for people that don't believe in unicorns or fairies do we? :P
