I'm a Knack fan, so you tell me...

I don't think having bad taste in games qualifies as being a minority.

That's it, I'd like to speak to your manager. Now.

I'm both white and atheist, which means I'm a double minority on this planet. Our people don't get a lot of respect.

Me too. And we're males as well, so it's open season if someone wants to come after us. Unless you're gay, that affords some protection.

At least we live in countries where it's safe to be an atheist.



Well, I'm gay, but I don't associate with the LGBT community. Not my style, I've never even thought about being a minority before. I'm also a type 1 diabetic with no toes and im missing a couple of fingers, that's why I'm TheTitaniumNub, im just a big nub at this point!



On this site? Yeah, since I'm in the PC camp. In my country? Definitely not.

Atheist is not really a minority in many developed countries these days. Many who identify as a member of a religion tend to live secular lives or know very little about scripture.

If anything, most people are agnostic. Even people who claim to be atheist will often show they're agnostic and even entertain some spiritual ideas.

You can be both agnostic *and* athiest.

Gnosticism is about knowledge. Theism is about belief. Most Theists and Atheists alike are agnostic. It's the gnostic variants that you should look out for. 

I know enough about Gnosticism to know its a form of Christianity. It just has different ideas of how we achieve salvation.

Saying you're agnostic AND atheist is essentially saying, "there is definitely no God, but there could be!"

I mean both atheism and agnosticism is both kinda philosophical. I am sure people who identify as either entertain spirituality or supreme power in some sense. The only thing I know for certain is the person who identifies as an atheist will generally be the bigger asshole and complains about Christians.

Being agnostic and athiest means, You don't know if there's a God but you don't believe.
Being agnostic and thiest means, you don't know if there is a god, but you believe there is. 

The same way I don't know that life exists outside of earth, but I believe it does.

There's only 2 races: White and 'Political Agenda'
2 Genders: Male and 'Political Agenda'
2 Hairstyles for female characters: Long and 'Political Agenda'
2 Sexualities: Straight and 'Political Agenda'

I hope this doesn't turn into another action packed religion discussion 😅 

just wanted to add that in fact we are all have at least a bit of agnosticism in us, since no religion claims to be able to understand God, and no one has a certain answer on whether God exists or not - perhaps apart from Saints, Apostles, prophets, mentally healthy witnesses, monks etc...

so, do I believe God exists? - deist, atheist or agnostic

if deist, do I believe God came into contact with humans - theist

if theist, which religion makes the most sense, most evidence/probability of being right, is best for me... then denominations, interpretations, personal beliefs...
