I prefer to go by apathiest. Don't know, don't care.

But, uh...well there it is.

Honestly, it depends on the proposed god. For the Abrahamic god and most defined gods, I am rather gnostic about their existence. But for gods I've never heard of, obviously I don't believe in them or disbelieve in them since I don't know anything about them. And for the vague idea that there could be a god, well those too fall into the simple lack of belief column.

So the "I lack a belief in god or gods" definition matches all cases involving any god. While I'm apathetic towards undefined or vaguely defined gods. And I'm gnostic towards most of the gods that people have presented to me.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I think I can explain it.
Look at the poster's name.
Look at Pasta Chick's answer.
Look at where the poster of the .gif is--an atheist forum.
Pasta Chick is an apathiest, and he's very happy to have found someone like him.

That's the sort of happy that makes me a little afraid he might try to wear my skin or something though.

I can fit under a number of different labels - Agnostic Atheist, Secular Humanist, and Anti-Theist.

Although that still doesn't fully define me, because despite being very much an anti-theist, I don't have much of a bite, especially off of the internet. If someone I really respect is a very strong Christian, I will respect them being religious... Even if it makes me very sad, because I see how much they devalue themselves because of it.

I would call myself an Atheist-humanist, simple!
I've seen and heard discussions on this, and whoo!, people get worked UP about it, talking around in circles....

I guess you could say, I'm the, "don't ram your beliefs down my throat, and we will get along just fine." type of atheist.
