Agnosticism deal with knowledge while theism/atheism deals with belief. I'm an agnostic atheist, meaning I don't know whether or not there is a God. Please tell me if your definitions are different than mine, but I consider anyone who doesn't accept theism or deism, an atheist. I'm not trying to be hateful or anything, I'm just curious.
Agnostic is simply a statement of knowledge(not a statement of belief) and technically everyone is agnostic whether they admit it or not. There are agnostic theists, agnostic atheist and agnostics here's the difference
when some is asked do you believe in god?:
the theist will answer...yes
the atheist will answer...no
the agnostic will say..."idk"..."i cant answer that"...N/A..."that question is irrelevant", etc
