There's no such thing as a gnostic atheist.
A gnostic atheist claims to know that there is no god.

It's simple.

Like you.

No.

Catholics are a member of Christianity, but they're not Christian.

Try calling a catholic a Christian......

Close.

A gnostic atheist "knows" there is no God.

Since this is something they can't know, there's no such thing as a gnostic atheist.

While all atheists may have beliefs, what they all have in common is that they do *not* have a belief in a god.

A very set of *specific* beliefs, relating to "Christ".

So what was your point, then?

Quite the contrary, a gnostic atheist is an atheist who believes that it is possible to know that gods do not exist.

It's pretty simple:

Agnostic theist - "I don't think we can know if there's a god or not, but I choose to believe in one."

Agnostic atheist - "I don't think we can know if there's a god or not, but I don't believe there is."

Gnostic theist - "I know for certain that there is a god."

Gnostic atheist - "I know for certain that there is no god."

Ok.

If that's the case, then there's no such thing as a theist.

Or a Christian.

Again...thank you.

I love it when you do my work FOR me.

Ps:....You contradict yourself. While professing to be a hatheist, then why worry about people when, according to you and your ILK, you're NOT going anywheres when you suck in your last breath anyways!!!

You just may be on to something, with the word “hatheist,” perhaps it could be hatetheist or angryatheist. How about assholeatheist?

Why are these people always so angry?

Like someone shot their favorite horse or in the case of Catcher, his ass.
