What would you call yourself if you don't care for the importance or either theism or the lack of theism or just dont think about it at all?

For example if someone were to tell me what exactly is my religion or faith system I would say "screw you" cause I'm not bound by the idea that I must have a label to either identify me as someone who is either religious or an atheist. If I wake up one day being in one mood or the other, I will be like that but it's not like I am identified as any side. And I cant stand religious people and atheists arguing with one another because I think those are just stupid things to argue about in our short lifespan.

Is it some form of agnosticism?

Militant Apatheitic Agnosticism

Wikipedia wrote:
Apatheism (a portmanteau of apathy and theism/atheism), also known as pragmatic atheism or (critically) as practical atheism, is acting with apathy, disregard, or lack of interest towards belief, or lack of belief in a deity. Apatheism describes the manner of acting towards a belief or lack of a belief in a deity; so applies to both theism and atheism. An apatheist is also someone who is not interested in accepting or denying any claims that gods exist or do not exist. In other words, an apatheist is someone who considers the question of the existence of gods as neither meaningful nor relevant to his or her life.

Apathetic agnosticism (also called pragmatic agnosticism) is the view that thousands of years of debate have neither proven, nor dis-proven, the existence of one or more deities (gods). This view concludes that even if one or more deities exist, they do not appear to be concerned about the fate of humans. Therefore, their existence has little impact on personal human affairs and should be of little theological interest.[1]

Hate the word - face it, I hate a lot of neologisms.

But I do not have as better word.

Read a sci fi tale once in swhich the aliens who were about to sterilize the planet claime humanity's most salient characteristic wa a drive to have a label for eberything.

If you are not caring about the God thing, why not also opt out of having a DSM label for your position? Or pull something out of the air:

"What do YOU think about Creationism?"

"Oh, I'm a Binkerite."

"Hey, way cool. What do Binkerites believe?"

"We are not encouraged to discuss our position with the Unrealised. Sorry."

Then you walk away making am obscure gesture with your fingers [NOT that one, it would just spark controversy].

I think you should say "none of your f*****g business"

That could be marked under "other".

Either you are apathetic or you intellectually beyond the rest of us.

I consider myself areligious. If there is a God, then he/she is my God and no one but my own God knows who I am. The idea that any individual is qualified to supervise any other individual's relationship with their God is...I can't think of anything stronger than "absurd". It's beyond absurd. Absurd to the nth. Absurd times pi to the nth.

Also, if there is a God, then the creating portion of the program is already done. The mechanism is in place and operating as designed and what do I need a teacher for? I am a result and part of the same mechanism as everyone else. If we can understand it, then it must contain everything an individual would require to figure it out.

Religion, by nature and including atheism, condemns both the universe and its nature. Apparently, that's its job and I don't have a problem with that - I just don't have any interest in that particular level of the mechanism so I consider myself "areligious". I put it in quotes because the spellchecker thought it wasn't a word. It is. Really. Sometimes I have to make up words, but this isn't one of those times. It's a real word. ROFL!

i do not "call" myself anything at all. i am "me" and i live the life of "me", and i do not need a name to call myself by to calibrate my idea of "myself". i just "am".
i could not give a damn for descriptions or worded approximations of myself.

there are not enough words in the language i know to fully describe me so i do not even begin to try to do so.

i would just ignore them completely and they would have no effect on the flow of my internal river of consciousness that can not be deflected by foreign stones thrown in by passers by. i am fluid and they are static and ne'er the twain do meet.

any thing that people try to "instill" in me is inevitably only going to sink to the river bed of my unstoppable continuity.

like a pebble thrown into a torrent , so are other people's antagonistic contributions to my way of being.

they may float their boat on the surface current of my inevitable course of volition, or they may sink as a rock to the floor of my fluent existence and be wedged in the mud of my immutable beliefs only to be mercilessly eroded due to their obstinacy to my unstoppable flow of inevitable being.


my course of consciousness is preprogrammed and no one can alter my code of sentient execution.

I would that's simply a form of agnosticism. Agnosticism is quite a wide term.

Agnosticism would suggest taking a stand--that no-one can know about deities.

Apatheism would take it one step further--accepting that someone may be right, but just not caring.

Thats Mormonism. Or Scientology. Or maybe its Free Masonry.

But seriously - you made me think - would someone that absolutely refuses to divulge any facts of their beliefs be less trusted than an forthright atheist?
