Are You An Atheist Or An Agnostic?
I am compiling a blogroll of atheists and agnostics. Do you consider yourself to be in either of these categories? And if so, would you like to be added to the blogroll?
Please leave a reply here.
"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)
Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"
I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

I am an atheist living in the USA. I am surrounded by dangerous people who believe that they do the will of invisible, mysterious, all powerful beings. They believe in devils, angels, hell, heaven, and gods. They thank god for good things that happen and take the blame for all bad things that happen. They think that I am the crazy one. My name is Paul Maybury Jr.
I would consider myself an agnostic. It is a shame that there aren't more agnostics or atheists living in this blasted "Bible Land" known as Oklahoma.
I am an atheist. I don't know how interesting my blog is . . . I just started it a few weeks ago. But I'd be happy to be on the blogroll.

Might as well add me in the atheist category…
August 28, 2006 at 4:29 pm
Yeah, feel free to add me as an atheist
Beep, I am definately an atheist (and also, in some senses of the term, an agnostic), so to sure.

Please count me as an atheist! There are far too few of us in the U.S. as it is, so I'm happy to be counted on your blogroll. I figure that after we come to terms with the myth of America, we might be ready to tackle the absurdity of believing in a God. Time will tell.
I'm the Executive Exchequer of Chocolate at Baylor University's Inherently Unofficial Atheists and Agnostics Society, so count me in!
I'd love to be on your new blogroll. Please put me down under atheist. I'm assuming that belief in the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Holy Sauce doesn't count.Eh?
I'm an atheist and I'd love to be included on your list. I am certainly open to proof and am willing to change my mind, but the way things stand at the moment, I don't see me becoming one with Christ, Allah, Krishna or anyone else anytime soon.
An atheist. Thank god.
Carnap used to say that when a normal person asked, he would say he was an atheist, but when a philosopher asked, he would say he was an agnostic.
Count me in as an atheist.
Count me in as atheist/agnostic.
Add me to your blogroll of free thinkers.
I am an atheist. I do not believe in the existence of gods or goddesses or any supernatural entities.
I am an intransigent atheist, so feel free to count me in. I too live in the USA and, as Paul Maybury, Jr., said of himself above, I am surrounded by potentially dangerous people who believe they are in contact with invisible magic beings who "see" and "know" more than they do. Christians think of themselves as fishers of men's souls. Think of me as one fish that got away.
My blog is Incinerating Presuppositionalism.
Sure, why not? I'm somewhere between an atheist and an agnostic. But I don't care much for either title. Both words assume some abnormality in what would be default position in any other field of thought. I am not an amermaidist just because there is no evidence for mermaids.
you can add my blathering blog http://occamsedge.blogspot.com/
Somewhere between agnostic and atheist
Semantically, there is no content difference between “In the beginning, God said “let there be light” and “from the singularity (the Big Bang) the universe exploded in a burst of energy”.
There is a diametrically opposite world view between the two statements.
For my simple mind the major difference can be stated thusly; The first statement implies explicit knowledge that is handed down from on high, unalterable, unquestionable and non falsifiable. The second implies questioning, wondering and experimentation – and the ability to discard theories that do not adhere to observation and measurement.
As an engineer, I can not look at what little of the universe I’m able to perceive without awe and wonder at how well it all works – however, as a curiosity driven homo sap I also can’t resist poking and teasing with the miniscule tools at my disposal at some the more accessible bits, in my case the electromagnetic spectrum, - I’m still playing with the two slit problem with Schrödinger's cat.
I'm happy to join this Merry Band.......
I'm an atheist- I sometimes post about atheist related things...
(Also a Douglas Adams fan)
I really dislike labels. Mainly because I have spent way too much time trying to find any suitable ones to fit me. I don't think I am an atheist, but I wouldn't really fall into the agnostic category unless your definitely is that no matter what happens life, I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe there is a "Heaven", maybe there is darkness and dirt, maybe you come back as an "eyeball" or maybe it's the aliens. So, if that qualifies me, I would be honored to be added to your blog roll. How's that for an excruciatingly long answer to a simple question?
A Rational Being - Atheist
I'm an atheist. My blog doesn't have much at all to do with my atheism, however.
Sure, why not.
I, most definitely and proudly, am an atheist. :-) Please count me in. Thank you.
You either believe in a god or gods, or you don't believe. I don't believe. I am an atheist person
. Do I have knowledge about the existence or non-existence of the supernatural? I do. I am an atheist person.
How am I defined? I am an individualist. I am Alleee.
Agnostic. Defiantly so.
Although, I sometimes wish that I was an apatheist again - so much easier.
I consider myself to be an "agnostic animist." I have no need for gods of any form, but think the other species we share this world with are worth trying to communicate with (however we might do that) b/c they can teach us things. Definitely skeptical & pro-science, so count me in.
I consider myself an atheist and an ignostic. I live in Baltimore, surrounded by Baptists and other emotionally stunted humans. My website is mostly concerned with the religious loons taking over, so I guess that counts as an atheist blog. Do I make the cut?
Representing a whole lot of atheists and agnostics in the Toronto area.
Yeah, I am, but I also amn't impressed when atheists are rude about preaching any more than when religious people try to instruct me on why their views are superior. I care more about whether people are annoying than why.
I'm an atheist, unless believing in the FSM counts...
Now I know why I like that Liberal Girl. I'm an atheist too.
I'm in too. I'm kind of inbetween atheist and agnostic, but probably more atheist.
I may already be there, but please include The Galloping Beaver
I'm a (mostly) strong atheist, blogging at http://abstractnonsense.wordpress.com
Didn't my last comment come through?
Anyway, I like to think of myself as a "Secular Humanist" like one of my favorite authors, Kurt Vonnegut. But I wouldn't be shocked if there actually is some type of diety. I guess that makes me an agnostic.
I conside rmyself an atheist.
count me in!!!
I am an ATHEIST and proud of it! Religion of any kind divides us, as does nationalism and capitalism.
We the people have to reclaim our world from the madmen who are running the world and us!
I'm an atheist of the "I haven't heard a good definition or seen good evidence" kind. Now quit with the comment spam. ;)
Yes, Beep Beep. I am an atheist and agnostic too. Not exactly a warrior on this cause. As a matter of fact, I have other war here in my city against corruption e in favor of democracy and citizenship.
But you may include me in your new blog rolling.
Count me as one of the godless assholes.
I will gladly sign on! I guess I would consider myself an agnostic. I believe there is something out there that influenced this world at one point but not sure what yet.
Still working on it! I do know the bible is full of inconsistencies and misconstrued facts and asserstions!
These perverted funamentalist have screwed us all up. It will get a lot worse. We have unbridled religiosity on both sides of this so called war on terror and that spells serious trouble. I blog on http://www.anaveragepatriot.com
Hi. Please add me as an atheist. Thanks.
(second atemmpt) As I think I'm in a transitional status, please consider me AGNOSTIC. (I think there are too many things I just don't know)
And as many had talked about their context, I must say I'm surrounded of many mystical people who believes in ghosts, green people, spirits, misteriuos energies,... and all combined with the catholic
I am neither Atheist nor Agnostic. I am Pagan, complete with gods, goddesses, and mythologies.
I don't "believe in" the gods and goddesses -- I am the gods and goddesses.
And unlike most folks with religious leanings, I'm fully aware that my mythologies are just that -- myths made up over the course of time (probably in the long cold winters when there wasn't much else to do) to keep mankind from freaking out over the self-aware fact that he is mortal and will someday die.
I'm not quite sure how you're gonna categorize me on this, but I'm looking forward to exploring the blogroll!
I am an atheist.
Sign me up Beep. Atheist.
I am an atheist, however I do not have a blog.
I don't mean to make trouble, but I find this comment to be hypocrite:
"I am an ATHEIST and proud of it! Religion of any kind divides us, as does nationalism and capitalism.
We the people have to reclaim our world from the madmen who are running the world and us!"-daniel
Daniel, you are anti-nationalism, yet you believe in a concept of "us". That sounds ridiculous. Do you mean us as humans? and if so, why must I be associated with you?
I am just actually curious.
Hmm - does an apatheist count?
Okay-dokey, I see people that I know here. Atheism in the belly, fire in my eyes. No gods, no masters, no clown cars. Nyuh-uhh.
an agnostic-christian. thinking about it hurts.
Became an atheist 35 years ago at the age of 18. I was told, over and over, that the day would come when I "return to Christ". I have had numerous trials in my 53 years that could have led me fall on my knees and pray - if there were even the tiniest thought in the back of my brain that there were some higher power out there capable of delivering me from my anguish. But I am so thoroughly convinced that no such thing exists, that regardless of my pain there was absolutely no reason to waste a moment of my time with it. For better or worse, this is all I have. I'm not going to make up a "happy ending" to comfort me in my rapidly passing years. I'll die rational, if nothing else.
I am a self-avowed, practising athiest. After 35 or more years, I'm pretty good at it, too.
Ok bearcastle, welcome to the new blogroll :)
Why yes, yes I am.
I'm in the process of switching to Wordpress, and I don't want to make that blog public until it's reasonably attractive, but if you could quickly shoot an email to dietcoupon (at) hotmail (dot) com I'll give you that URL to add to the blogroll as soon as I can!
Big atheist here. Although, my blog is mostly about me also being a big homo. But yeah, atheist.
I'd like to be included if you allow Zionist Atheists.
Add me too. I'm an atheist as well. :)
Please include me. Should we be posting our URLs? Otherwise you'll have to go through all the links to get them, and as you're already up to 64, and counting, that could take up valuable blogging time. Mine is www.deaconbarry.blogspot.com
This is a great idea, and a valuable resource.
Atheists are for the Devil. I mean no disrespect by that. I think almost everything is for the Devil. I think I might have a problem.
Thanks for all your comments on my blog--and for the most recent one luring me here.
Yes, I consider myself an atheist and would appreciate a link in your blogroll.
This comment thread is already a valuable resource for finding some interesting blogs I didn't know before!
Take care everyone.
I'm a long-confirmed agnostic, because I actually enjoy the process of learning that comes from admitting that I don't know the answer. There's a great deal in various religious systems that's frightening, and there's also much that has genuine value.
I find that those who are especially rigid in their belief systems, whether religious or secular, have to work especially hard to keep from learning anything that might upset their view of the world. I'm all for having my worldview turned upside down and often.
I am not prepared to give up a "secular world view". I have quite a few reasons for this, but I am not sure I will go into them at this stage.
There are forces of dominionism happening from 2 very politically active sides, that of christian dominionism and islamic dominionism. I don't want to live in a theocracy. I enjoy the fruits and benefits of a secular, liberal society.
I'm Atheist. Add me, please.
I've been away and busy doing other stuff and I've managed to miss this one. I'd like to be included as well, if that's ok...
Ohhhhh, you may, indeed, add my lill' blog to your list of Atheist Blogs.
Stay on Groovin' (DNA Jungle) Safari,
agnostic. great blog BTW
my podcasting co-host and I are both atheistic. we try to keep our science podcast out of the realm of religious criticism and stick to the stories of the week, but hey, pro scienec is pro freethought, am i wrong?
Hi! Can I play, too? I am definitely one of the godless. But have yet to commit acts of terrorism, genocide, or other crimes against humanity. Go figure!
please add me. strong atheist.
Sorry this took so long, but you can count us all as atheists.
Always considered myself an atheist...brought up that way.
Some atheists claim I'm not an atheist or that I should call myself an agnostic because I do believe that there are NATURAL forces at work that we may not be able to measure with current technology; just think back to before we knew anything about quantum physics if you don't get how I can think that.
However, I don't believe in any sort of deity putting these forces in order...call me what you will, but I guess I'd consider myself an open-minded, non-theistic skeptic! :)
You are making the common mistake of assuming that one cannot be both. Atheism is a position of belief while agnosicism refers to knowledge. As an atheist, I do not believe in the existence of gods. As an agnostic, I hold the view that it is impossible to prove or disprove the existence of gods. In other words, even if gods did exist, it would be impossible to prove it. Therefore, I am an agnostic atheist...I do not believe in the existence of any gods but I don't believe it is possible to prove (or to know) that gods do not exist.
