I'm up to patch 8.2 Reptilian Edition if I'm not mistaken.

True that, at least the Tooth Fairy gives you something in return for your belief and sacrifical offerings. When was the last time god ever did anything for anyone?

Which is ironically what it has been diluted to now.

Except for some highly selected parts of their dogma (and some items they made up subsequent) that MUST be codified in secular law for EVERYONE to follow regardless.

The 'diluted' version only applies to folks claiming to be part of the club and partaking of the shared ritual of donating money to keep the show running.
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

I'm not a fan of these options but for the sake of choosing one option I chose gnostic atheist. I am pretty convinced there is no god and I live my life as if there is no god because I find no logical reason to believe there is one. To take a page out of Dawkin's book, I am a gnostic atheist in the same way that I am a gnostic a-fairyist.

That's the thing, really. Your average agnostic atheist probably lives their life in exactly the same way as a gnostic one. You'd have to have very serious concerns about a specific kind of God being possibly real before it affected your behavior. Just thinking "there might be some sort of God" isn't enough to affect behavior, as far as I can see. What difference does it make, if you have no information about it?

For sure. There's this weird pass that we give religion and/or god(s) where just because we cannot prove it is untrue, we have to consider ourselves agnostic atheists, when in reality most of us, or at least a lot of us, are probably gnostic atheists in the sense that, what difference does it really make?

I am extremely angry at there being no "nonbelieving turtle" option. Damn racists.

RE: Poll: What is your Specific Level of Atheism?
Noting in the poll really works for me.  I voted "skeptic" because I'm an atheist for the same reason as I'm an a-unicornist.  No evidence.
There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide mankind that cannot be achieved as well or better through secular means.
