    So I have to deny the existence of aliens now to be a "real" atheist, but lack belief atheists are fine? I lack belief in aliens. Happy?

    Yes, I never wanted you to be the same as me, or try to tell you what you believe, if you wish to replace your lack of belief by substituting them with "powerful aliens" that is fine. All you have done is redefine gods to suit your beliefs, cool.

    I am an atheist I lack belief.

    You are an atheist, you think most gods could be powerful aliens.

    I am a "Real Atheist", do not believe in any man created version of a "God", yet I am a "Lacker"(Agnostic) because I am not ignorant enough to pretend I KNOW nothing exists. Do I get your new label or should I just stick with calling myself an Atheist?

    I dont know what you are, so you are saying that you deny the existence of all G/god(s), or just man made gods?

    Real atheists deny the existence of ALL G/gods without reservation.

    How could you possibly be confused by my direct and simple explanation...is this some purposeful ignorance manifestation? I am a "Real Atheist", do not believe in any man created version of a "God", yet I am a "Lacker"(Agnostic) because I am not ignorant enough to pretend I KNOW nothing exists. How can that be misunderstood?

    simple you used a disclaimer 'man created', which means you 'would' believe in a God that was not man created.

    a real atheist does not believe in Any G/god(s) period. No disclaimers. No reservations. No hedging their bets.

    Thus the Atheist/Agnostic designation. I do not believe in "YOUR GOD" but don't know what I don't know.

    Its pretty tough to believe in an agnostic God, since you cant be agnostic and atheist at the same time any more than you can be a theist and atheist at the same time. agnostics do not buy into 'either' side, and are neutral, and clearly that is not the case with you since you label yourself an atheist therefore you cant be agnostic.

    By using the label atheist you are saying that you have concluded there is no God which is a conclusion based upon knowledge then saying you are agnostic and have no or not enough knowledge which is completely contradictory.

    Okay...obviously you are unfamiliar with the whole "Open Mind" concept so I will try to explain it in a way you might grasp:

    Ya C deres dis thangy folks be callin' thankin' dat gits ya dizzy sumtimes butt cin make folk smarter. Dat Gawg feller bees sumthin' wit bigly thankin' stuff in 'em dat kin be powefill hedsplittin' so ya is best just puttin' it in da corn shed til it comes a callin'.

    The biggest problem the Theist has would be the requirement to say they "Know" something impossible to know, this forces intelligent persons to immediately mark them as dishonest or ignorant.

    You dont seem to understand what an agnostic is.

    agnostics do not buy into 'either' atheism or theism.
    atheists buy into no Gods exist

    so calling yourself an agnostic atheist is non-sequitur, because to be an agnostic you cant buy into either and you are buying into atheism which is completely non-sequitur.

    When I consider the level of competence, understanding, and even logical/rational thought you project here pardon me for dismissing your opinion as flawed.
