An atheist's opinion • An agnostic is someone too intelligent to believe in gods but too cowardly to be an atheist. • A secondary opinion is that since an agnostic lacks positive and explicit belief in any gods anyway, they are, well, technically an atheist anyway. • A more charitable view suggested by Leon Baradat is that "Agnostics are the only people smart enough not to take sides in religious matters."
A theist's opinion • An agnostic is someone too intelligent to be a closed minded, outright atheist but too cowardly to believe and commit to belief in gods. • A secondary opinion is that since an agnostic is prepared to believe in gods in principle, are open to the idea of religion and don't reject the concept of a higher power outright, they are, well, technically a theist anyway.
An agnostic's opinion • A theist is someone who stubbornly insists that their imaginary friend(s) are real. • An atheist is someone who just as stubbornly insists that the theist's friend(s) would be measurable have measurements if they exist. • An atheist, furthermore, is someone who (1) insists that the question "Does God exist?" is answerable, (2) claims to have the correct answer, and (3) promptly paints hirself into the less-than-sunny corner of having to prove a negative. • A secondary opinion is that theists and atheists should turn their stereos down because some of us are trying to sleep. (Actually, for many agnostics this is the primary opinion -- and for some, the only relevant issue.)
An agnostic lightbulb joke • Q. How many agnostics does it take to screw in a lightbulb? • A. "Are you sure that's a socket? That could be part of the sprinkler system. I can't get close enough to see...as far as I can tell, it could be either one. There's no real way of knowing."
Another agnostic lightbulb joke • Q. How many agnostics does it take to screw in a lightbulb? • A. None. They'll ask you to prove it can be screwed in.

Said by a smart Arktos member,
"A slavic girl may be so sweet. The nicest one you'll ever meet. She might seduce you if she can. You'll think she is your greatest fan. But cross her, and your fate she'll seal, with a will of titan steel."
