"Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way." - Hitch
I am absolutely convinced that the main source of hatred in the world is religion, and organized religion. Absolutely convinced. - Hitch
Agnostic atheism, also called atheistic agnosticism, is a philosophical position that encompasses both atheism and agnosticism. Agnostic atheists are atheistic because they do not hold a belief in the existence of any deity, and agnostic because they claim not to know with absolute certainty whether any deity exists. Agnostic atheism is the only tenable and intellectually honest position with regards to the existence of a deity. Anyone who maintains otherwise is welcome, and encouraged, to put forward their argument.

"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded, because the elements -- the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life -- weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today."
— Lawrence M. Krauss
