I see you took some inspiration from me here ;)

While it's not a position I take, it's certainly one that, if more famous, would have a large amount of followers. There are thousands of gods in history, and an infinite number of combinations. So when we say "God", how do we know we are correct in our usage?

Sure did. But if you read my debates you'll know the subject is nothing new to me.

Got a reason why?

Oh dear you'll have to get to know someone deeply and personally, and who wants to do that when stereotyping them is so much easier!

Because I don't think any concept of God is correct, any concept that invokes the supernatural cannot be empirically proven, and thus doesn't interest me. Unless the true concept of God is natural, which defeats the point of being God, all the different concepts can be disregarded simultaneously.

I'd never seen the term before. I don't know that I am one, I have for a long time considered myself to be an atheist, but I can see the logic. I certainly don't think that any of the definitions of 'god' that I've seen actually exist. I certainly can't disagree with the position.

A view that we have not met God and therefore don't really know him, would be a more reasonable approach. No religion knows the true God. All religions maybe talking about the same god, but may have the details about god wrong. Religions are formed by man trying to identify what and who God is.

So they are basically like agnostic agnostics.

Wow, I understand being undecided that's why I flocked to agnosticism, but to be undecided about being undecided is just a step too far.

It's not long before their is the religious view that claims ignostics claim too much, then the view that claims that they think too much. When will it end?
