    Lot of people have said that all atheists are agnostic because there's no ecidence or proof that god doesn't exist
    I think thinking like this is totally avoiding the real question of whether god does exist
    There's infinite amount of things we can say have no evidence of lack of existence and it's just a really bizarre way of thinking about it
    There's no evidence that the universe isn't controlled by a unicorn that doesn't mean there's a chance of it and nor should I consider it

    Exactly! I find (most of) those who are agnostic to have a belief that all evidence is equally likely, but it is demonstrably not, it always makes me wonder how agnostics can rule out all the stupid stuff but keep the last bastion of stupid stuff as something that is as likely possible as not. I reckon it is mostly a kicking and screaming out of religious indoctrination reaction. Also why are so many of them heavily into Philosophy.

    No agnostics are those who are non committal
