    When Atheists are included in a religious poll, Agnostics should have been as well and would probably end up at the top given the demographics I've seen at DP...

    I'm surprised people are taking the atheist choice considering I've been repeatedly told that atheism isn't a religion.

    "Agnostic" either means some mystical conviction that there things unknowable in principle, or it means nothing. I see no evidence of gods existing, so they are not a part of my worldview, and I am an a-theist. I do not know for sure that gods do not exist. How can I - or anybody, considering that we don't even know what to look for? All atheists are then "agnostics" (or else inverted religious fanatics who believe that there no gods, based on nothing).

    Well, it was italicized, as a separate option. "None" would do just as well.

    No, it means a real uncertainty, or one can hold a belief that something can be created from nothing...

    Dude, it's only italicized for you because that was your answer.

    I'm guessing a fundamental lack of curiosity, or perhaps he feels the subject has been made too much of already, is the most likely explanation for his peculiar lack of interest in this topic.
