Everyone, I would like to make a proposition on a certain little thing that has been nagging me for some time on this forum: the ‘Religion’ section of member’s profile pages. While for the most part there is very little wrong with this – it names all of the major faiths, and with respect to small, or fringe groups has a selectable ‘Other’ status too - there are two titles on there that I find to be misused: The words Atheist and Agnostic. My problem is that the two words have two different interpretations, depending on who you ask. Let us look at the word ‘Atheism’ for example. Some people claim the word Atheism means the decree, or idea that a god or a group of gods do not exist; others claim it is the rejection of the assertion that a god or gods do exist. While these two definitions are very similar, they are NOT the same; and this is sometimes a source of conflicting opinion when a lengthy debate arises on a site like, say, YouTube – and might have even been either debated about or hinted at here on this sight in the past. Bizarrely, if you look up the word Atheist in the Merriam-Webster website it contains the following definition: one who believes that there is no deity; while it defines the word Atheism as following: And it is the same story when it comes to the word Agnostic; to use the Merriam-Webster websites definition again, it states that the word Agnostic means either: Again, these two definitions are in a very real sense completely contradictory. Also, in a very real way everyone is an Agnostic, as ultimate truth is at present, and possibly always will be, beyond our grasp. And so I propose the following: that we replace the entry ATHEIST to WITHOUT BELIEF, or alternatively GODLESS; because - as I have pointed out - the word Atheist is really a 'broken' word.
