I'm theist, and I'm certain I'm right
I'm atheist, and I'm certain I'm right
I'm theist, and I might be wrong
I'm atheist, and I might be wrong.
Whether you're Atheist, Christian, Muslim or any other 'believer' in some state of affairs, does that belief mean you are certain beyond the possibility that you may be wrong?
Of course not, no one can claim absolute certainty about anything, especially not regarding a god.
However, I cannot know with absolute certainty that It's not possible to know anything with absolute certainty.
Anybody who picked "I'm certain I'm right" should be ashamed.
I'm theist. It's arrogance to say you know 100% that you're right
I am an athiest. I am absolutely certain that I am right in my belief that the belief in a deity does not stand up when subjected to the scientific method.
'Ali ibn Abi Talib(ra), among others, would say:
"Even if the veil of the Unseen were lifted up, my certainty would not increase." ('Ali al-Qari, al-Asrar al-Marfu'ah, 286.)
Make of that what you will, but that's how many Muslims feel.
I'm some sort of atheist - meaning that I don't think that the idea of a "God" even makes sense
but, of course, there is some very small possibility that I may be wrong
why, there is even a small chance (say, about 1 in a billion billion billion) that e.g. Islam or Christianity might be correct, and that I will have to spend an eternity in Hellfire
however, the possibility is so small that it's not worth loosing any sleep over it
