No, he means Atheist. ^^|| Atheism is when you believe, bluntly, that there is no 'higher power'. Agnosticism means that you neither believe nor dis-believe in God, or other deities. Kinda like if you're on the fence.

I picked Other for Agnostic, because it best describes me. If you show me substantial, scientific proof that God/Jesus exists now or existed in the past, then I'll be tempted to convert to a not religious Christian -- I won't pray, or go to church, or stop saying "God dammit", but I'll know that Jesus died for us and all that jazz.

But personally, I feel that if there is a God, then he's one angry, bitter, self-righteous mofo, sitting on his pedestal, casting judgements for the afterlife, but never coming down to earth to intervene. There's a term for it, but I can't think of it off the top of my head...

EDIT: Ah, got it. Well... 'them', rather. xD

Code:
Authoritarian: God is very angry and willing to punish anyone who is unfaithful.

Critical: does not intervene with the world, but he will cast judgment afterlife.

Distant: a cosmic force that set the laws of nature into motion.

Benevolent: gentle, forgiving, listens and responds to prayers, and cares deeply.

Mystical: God didn't create the universe, God is the universe.
So Critical, Authoritarian Agnostic, is what I am. :P Herpderp.

It seems like I'm the only Muslim so far :P

Anyway...I was brought up a Muslim; and so my opinion is probably a biased, although I have studied briefly on other religions (mostly Christianity...in briefness?). To be specific I'm a Moderate Muslim (as most should be, but what I mean is that I can choose if I want to wear my hijab, excluding religious occasions...not that other people should force a girl to wear the hijab...I should stop this bracket now, shouldn't I?) and a Sunni.

And...yeah. That's it lol.

I find Islam to be the most interesting religion. Islam used to bolster its people, giving them knowledge of science. Nowadays, however, it seems it does the same Christianity did during that time. I find it interesting how Islam was once the greatest religion on Earth for knowledge, but now it shuns it and turns it away. At least, that is what it does in many parts of the world.

Did you know, also, during the Dark Ages that Muslim women had more rights than Christian women did? I also find that strange how the reverse happened.

That really is the only problem I have with Islam. The fact that women are so gravely mistreated. I can't say I agree with the whole, "Cover up your skin or Allah will punish you," sort of thing either, though fundamentalist Christians believe in the same thing.

Isn't the Islamic religion supposed to be unbelievably similar to Christianity?

Not in the slightest. They are both Abrahamic religions, but they are currently very different.

'Currently very different'? As in they used to be alike? And sorry, must've confused Islam with something else. ^^||
