So if I insist that there are flying, pink, fluffy, unicorns, you will only "doubt" their existance?<quoted text> there are a lot of things to be solved by science. but there are more things not to be attributed to magic. the ones that are neither are to be unsolved, lived with, and wondered at with interest - and that is the joy of agnosticism. not knowing is the base from which one should begin in all candor. and one should not rush to abandon it to claim a knowledge one does not have. I am also an atheist, a nonbeliever, but I make no knowledge claim. my guess is is that there is much that cannot be known. that is no excuse for believing in something evil or ridiculous. but it is also not something to be uncomfortable with and try to wipe out with an unproven scientific certainty. the joy of science is in not be conclusively sure, and in always being open to new evidence.
