YouTube Commenter Breaks It Down

Theist = Believes in a god.
Atheist = Doesn't believe in a god.

Agnostic = Doesn't know whether or not god exists.
Gnostic = Does know whether or not god exists.

Agnosticism/Gnosticism and Atheism/Theism are NOT mutually exclusive. Everyone takes one of the two positions regardless of what else they say.


I would just add to the above that the Gnostic can not REALLY know one way or the other.  They can only have "faith." (If a Gnostic can prove conclusively that there is a God(s)/Goddess(es), then that will be a historical first for humanity.)

So, I'm an Atheist AND an Agnostic.  Fun!
