there really isn't a difference between what you said and what I said. In terms of religious discussion
Gnosticism (not Gnosticism; only capitalized as per grammar) is an idea that floats in between atheism and theism and only serves to describe either one.
With the stuff we're discussing in this thread, it's necessary to understand that we're effectively dealing with three (or more, if I deem necessary later on) different gradients. Since the first is least related to your post, I'll spoiler it.
Atheist -- Theist
Also, stealing this from the link HarrisonH posted, but I think it's definitely useful to be in this thread:
Your over thinking it. on a basic level Theist = there is a god. Add the prefix "A" meaning "no". Thus they believe there is not god.
Gnostic = Know and A meaning no = Does not know. Agnostic and Atheist are no different things.
The point I was trying to make is that it is stupid not to think in depth and to just say yes there's a god, or no there's no god.
Words are also very much open to the interpretation of the reader as well. Your definition may not be the exact same as mine. Words are almost like poems. The writer had his own view and each person who reads it has there own view. Of course on a much smaller level.
Perhaps you miss understood me because it seems we are arguing the same point.
