Atheist VS Agnostic - How Do They Compare & What's The Difference?

Some of us believe in gods, some in reincarnation, and some are unsure, or believe it’s the end of the road once we find ourselves six feet under. No one really knows for sure but the quest to understand truth and whether there is life after death has been a goal of humanity far beyond the first history books were written.
How are some of our belief and non-belief systems alike? That’s what we’ll be attempting to find out in today’s episode of The Infographics Show: Atheist vs. Agnostic - How do they compare & what’s the difference?

Atheism is in a broad sense the unbelief in god or the belief that there is no god. Many atheists argue that it’s a label that shouldn’t really exist at all, as we don’t create names for other nonbelief systems. For example there is no word to describe someone who doesn’t believe in astrology. If there were, we would probably call them non-astrologers.
But in recent years the atheist movement has become a lot larger with many outspoken famous atheists, such as scientist and author Richard Dawkins or comedian Ricky Gervais. The two main divisions within atheism are often called gnostic atheism and agnostic theism. Those in the first group state that they definitely know there is no god and can prove it, the second group are people who say that they can’t prove it with certainty, but there is most likely no god.
In his book The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins suggests a spectrum of seven levels of beliefs from those who believe in God to those who do not.

+SkyTech RTS Thank you my friend for spreading the truth about atheism, with this video full of misinformation and misunderstandings.
BananaJunior11
+username1nmillion I would like to correct you: An atheist doesn't believe a god exists. It does not say anything about afterlife or other metaphysical beliefs. You can believe in leprechauns, unicorns, spirits afterlife and more, and as long as you don't consider any of those a god or gods you are still an atheist. This video is just FULL of misinformation about atheism and agnosticism.

The Greek prefix A does not mean opposite. It’s means without, lacking, etc. Atheism is not the opposite of theism. No where on the “atheist scale” is there gnosticism. That would be anti-theism. Atheism lacks theism, not opposes it.

Religions and Atheism is the same, both based on beliefs in things which you can't verify or falsify for yourself, and are not part of your direct experience. Atheism goes into Scientism/Metaphysics, which is another cult just like mainstream religions.

If you're atheist that's your choice If you're religious that's your choice If you're agnostic that's your choice A religious person cannot go and begin insulting an atheist just because their atheist and vice versa. We should learn to respect other religions. This does not mean following these religions but rather acknowledging that different people believe in different things and it's not right to just to blatancy insult religions and beliefs.

No, it was magically created by a wizard who came from nowhere. That wizard made the universe 99,9% uninhabitable, earth with 99% deadly enviroments for humans, earth´s surface with 80% water and only 1% drinkable water. After he created everything he made it all look like it wasnt created at all, he made it all look like it was formed naturally and all life seemed to have evolved naturally. Then the wizard erased all traces of himself and went into hiding to never show himself again. Some crazy people later wrote a book about this wizard but nobody is able to understand it.. it is so badly written that everyone can interpret as they self see fit.

It is the same with all monkeys, apes and humans, we all share a common ancestor and we all are part of same species of primates. All cats are subspecies of felines and humans are subspecies of primates. All protospecies also share a common ancestor that has been and can still be proven to trace all the way back to single cell organisms. This process of evolution is the basis for all parts of biology, medicine, chemical processes, molecular interactions and physiological mechanisms. I will not force anyone to blindly believe me. It is everyones own duty to educate themselves. We must critically question and demand evidence from both religion and science.

@ 0:45 if something exists and has no contrary existences, or said contrary existences deviate in all directions (making the non-deviant existence the default / standard) there generally isnt a word for the default. just like we have the words fat and thin which are specifically used to refer to being over or under weight, we use the word "average" to describe people of average weight. and 1000 years ago we may have had a word for air, but likely not vacuum since a vacuum didnt exist, and thus likely didnt have the word, or a word like "atmosphere" we dont have a word for people who dont believe in astrology because there is no significant group of people who dont believe in astrology, unlike "flat earthers" and the reason we use the term atheist is due to the fact that theism used to be the default / standard, and had been for thousands of years. thus the deviation from the norm was given a name, a name that exists to this day.

Atheism and agnosticism are not different sides of the same coin. They are different coins. The opposite of atheism is theism. You either believe or you don't believe in a God or gods. Agnosticism is a knowledge claim in that it's states that we cannot know something with absolute certainty. So you can be an agnostic atheist or agnostic Christian etc. However you cannot say that you're 20% atheist or 20% Christian. That's like saying you're 20% pregnant or 20% not pregnant. Your faith is either active or not active.

Atheism and theism are a stance on a belief claim of the existence of a deity. Agnosticism and Gnosticism are knowledge claims of the existence of a deity. You can be an agnostic atheist- I do not know if a god exists and I do not believe in a god. You can be an agnostic theist- I do not know if a god exists but I believe a god exists. You can be a Gnostic atheist- I do not believe a god exists because I know a god does not exist. You can be a Gnostic theist- I believe that a God exists because I know that a God exists.

Einstein talking about "God" has been misunderstood since the day he said it. To him, "God" was just the unknown workings of the Universe, the physical forces at play, not an all knowing man in the sky.
Universal Blasphemist
You cite a definition of Agnostic, then cite the creator of the word who actually used a different definition. It's A+Gnostic (Big letter 'G') as "Not like one of those Gnostics" - which he justified by pointing out that so many of his friends, on both sides of the argument were "as the Gnostics", meaning that one group was convinced beyond doubt that there was a god and the other group was convinced there wasn't a god. He sat in the middle wondering what a god was, and what necessary characteristics a god would have, and concluded that it would be impossible to honestly fall on either side if one were to approach the topic with true scepticism. Agnosticism therefore is the BELIEF that nothing is, or can be, known about the supernatural world, specifically about the existence of a god.

Who really *knows* whether there's an afterlife or whether god exists or not? Like how many times have you died so now you know about that? Why is it so difficult to be honest and say that you don't know? I don't think agnostics are cowards, they're honest. It's not cowardly to not choose to pretend you know something which you actually don't.

I feel like I’m both because when I was really young, I was forced to go to church and pray and just went along with it because my dad wanted me to. My dad is catholic and my mom is agnostic. I get told I’m more atheist than agnostic because I normally argue with people who talk about their god but then accept that they believe that. Half of me is like “there is no God” and half of me is like “but what if there is something out there” . I think it’s just the way you were raised, if both of my parents were atheist, agnostic, or believe nothing - just living life, I don’t think I would believe in anything. But since my dad is catholic and plenty of people around me talk about the after life, aliens, etc ... I get curious. (I also do not believe in most religions because they are all racist, sexist, and against many things. I’ve also been forced to believe in God or else I would go to hell and have seen others being hit to believe in God). I honestly think that we just need to love life because we only are here for a short amount of time - be happy.

Well understanding the difference from Agnostic and Atheist was simple to me. Imho Atheist is the belief that there is no creator and we happen to be the 1 in a billion draw at random (possible). Agnostic is the that there's possibility of a creator but all the religious text on it is has flaws, so the way I understand it is (I consider myself Agnostic) they cant be followed or trusted so just live life the best you can.

Your definition of agnostic theism is incorrect they claim that such things are unknown and may be unknowable but believe it's more likely a creator exists hence the theism part...

sugibudder

At the start it says that atheism isnt even a category, this is how atheists use the term, an atheist (like with agnostic, the a stands for the lack of something) is simply just someone who is not a theist and because you either believe something to be true or you dont, it is logically impossible to not be 1 or the other. i can totally see all 3 sides, but there are not 3 sides, there is only 2, you either believe or you dont and whether you admit that you cant know is totally irrelevant when we are talking about belief. at 3:35 you can see this clearly, the 2 are not in a disagreement, they are not even talking about the same thing, 1 says he doesnt believe and the other doesnt claim to know either way when in reality neither of them believe and neither of them claim to know. And btw, knowledge is just a subset of belief, to know something is to believe it very strongly, you can claim to know something that you believe, but you cant claim to not believe something that you know. tl:dr, people trying to separate agnosticism and atheism as positions on godd existance are either making a strawman by saying that atheism is a belief in no gods or directly contradicting the logical absolutes (Law of Excluded Middle). you can still be an agnostic theist, you just cant avoid both theist and atheist lables without being dishonest.

I think of atheist/agnostics like this: Lets say i have in front of someone a box. And i say "what is in the box?". An agnostic will say "i do not know what is in the box" and that would be a correct statement. An atheist would also say "i do not know what is in the box". However atheist are willing to take things a step further. If i say "is a dragon inside the box?" an agnostic might say "well we can not know for sure, so i do not know" but an atheist would say "based on my knowledge on dragons, the evidence for their existence, and the characteristics they are said to have... no... a dragon is not in the box". Almost all atheist are agnostic, but we are willing to take things one step further. Almost no atheist will say "it is impossible for a god to exist" but most _will_ say "it is not possible that the god described in your holy books is real". And they make this claim based on knowledge of this god. For example Mormonism. It might be possible that a god is real, however based on all the information we have on Mormons we can confidently say that the Mormon religion was all made up. We do not need to be agnostic on this because we have evidence to back up the claim.

would describe myself as agnostic atheist, meaning: non of the god claims have convinced me, but am i a 100% certain there is nothing we could or would call a god or gods? NO!

That would violate the Law of excluded middle, would it not?

Atheism is often misunderstood. Atheism is lack of belief in a god and therefore agnostics are atheists. Atheism describes what you believe in (or in this case that you don't believe in any god) and agnostism describes what you know.

The main thing that’s keeping me to theism is the fact that it seems impossible to turn unconscious chemicals minerals and rocks etc to living conscious beings. Until now atheists can’t validly explain how that happened and no matter how good our technology is we can’t even create one living cell out of non living material. You can say evolution exists but when you go back to point zero I see no possible way for the theoretical ancestor of all of life to come of scratch.

I would hope that you see this is the very definition of an argument for incredulity. This argument also goes by the name, "God of the gaps". In essence, using God as an explanatory "filler" anywhere that science has not yet be able to explain. The problem is that while it may feel like you have an answer, in actuality you are nowhere closer to an explanation than if you simply said, "I don't know." If you define a God as being able to do anything, then of course it can be an answer for everything, but an explanation for nothing. Just be honest with yourself and recognize that you don't have an answer to the origins of life. Be humble enough to recognize the limits to your knowledge and that it is okay to say "I don't know".

Not knowing or not understanding the origin of life is not proof for any gods existence. Can theism validly explain how nothing became everything? A story of a creator saying "Let there be light" doesnt explain anything. It only brings more questions that needs to be answered and "because god" is no valid answer to anything.

No Atheist in fact does not only mean 'The Unbelief of God', and 'The Belief there is no god' these are in fact Christian fallacies 101. Atheism can mean any of the following and more : Never accepted any god, or gods, do not subscribe to a god in any form, (And note this isn't just the Christian gods), If you are born in a non theistic country you are an atheist ipso-facto. by default. the theistic belief must be taught, learned, inherited (such as family, peers, culture etc). As an Atheist I can find proof positive all religions not only are plagiarized myths, they come from previous plagiarized myths. Man-made mythologies to ensnare peoples minds to priests thinking for money, obligations, servitudes, and more. however like video suggests, all if Christians don't belief in Zeus, or the millions of other gods, and deities, they too are atheist. Instead picking 1 god of millions then calling it their own. making them nearly 100% atheist. Sure, Sure I could be wrong, and your countless millions of times altered deity may have magically poofed everything into existence. Besides, the Sun was "GOD" at least a million years longer than all the current gods combined, and created everything long before all yours over a million years earlier. I too in that retrospect am an 'A-Sunist' see how silly it gets?

Preaching and quoting your Bible will get you nowhere with people who don't already believe.

Ofcourse a book that wants to brainwash people say that everyone who deosnt believe in it are fools. The bible is gods words, because it says so in the bible. The bible is true, because it says so in the bible. Those who doesnt believe this are fools, because it says so in the bible. It also says that "Whoever says, 'You fool!' will be subject to hellfire."

I’m a closet atheist though I wish none of us had to be.

You might be surprised once you come out how many people around you think the same way. I remember when i told my father i was an atheist (we were talking about the factuality of the bible and it was implied that i did not believe anymore) he said "yeah... i dont think any of that happened either". From there it turns out my two sisters were also non-believers and my sister's husband seems to be shifting towards an atheistic mindset more and more every time i see him. In some ways its almost like when a kid still believes in Santa, but as they get older and older both the kid and the parent pretend Santa is real because they don't want to be the first one to burst that bubble. To make the first move. A lot of it is about appearances.

Mary decided to have sex. Once Mary got pregnant she realized she would get in trouble. So Mary then lied about how she got pregnant, and now we have a religion because of it :)

I'll become an atheist the day science can prove that matter can create life,that macro evolution is a fact and the big bang/universe/life form was all one big coincendence.

I´ll become theist when anyone can prove that any god exists and can create matter, energy and life from nothing. All living things are made out of dead matter. Macroevolution and speciation happen all the time, it has been observed. There is no magical line that stops microevolution from becoming macroevolution. Small changes becomes big changes given enough time.
