What is The Difference Between Atheism and Agnosticism?
First off, it is important to realize that these terms are not mutually exclusive. Atheism is based on belief and means to be without a belief in god or gods. Agnosticism is based on knowledge and means to be without knowledge of a god or gods. The “a” in both terms means to be without. Many people, like us here at Philosophical Atheism are agnostic atheists. We do not have knowledge of a god or gods, so our belief is that they do not exist due to lack of evidence.
