Actually it would be more accurate to state that a high percentage of atheists are agnostic.
That is rather stupid but of course not surprising assertion considering the source.

Atheism is the *DISBELIEF*, not the lack of belief.

Agnostic atheist is no different - no less nonsensical- than agnostic Christian.

Almost pregnant?

Deists are considered agnostic theists. I am an agnostic atheist, so you are saying that I am a figment of your imagination, interesting. If you think one label can describe anyone, then you are more deluded than I had suspected.

You can also tell us that you are a being from a galaxy far far away in a parallel universe.

So what?

You also told us you weren't fat...

Theist agnostics, perhaps. But atheist agnostics, we're just honest enough to say "we don't know." ;)
I would like to meet someone who does know for certain.

Really? How?

It was you that claimed the Constitution is based on Biblical principles. I merely asked you to demonstrate that, and stated that I don't think you can.

But then, your grasp on logical fallacies is very weak, as demonstrated by your continual use of them.

You mean like when you insisted that there was a logicality fallacy in my argument where I provided two arguments to whether or not the United Kingdom was a monarchy, yes or no?

And I slapped the snot out of you and you ran away?

Happy to pick that up again, my dear, the options of the two sided coin...

Yes, precisely that...where you exercise the fallacy of the excluded middle.

See, that was easy.

You really should try harder.

I already slapped the snot out of you on this.

There is no middle.

There is no 'a little bit pregnant'.

Your ankle bracelet, your arrest record, and the red circle on the map around your house seem to indicate you try.

Certainly: you can't prove you haven't.
