: Could someone explain me the real difference between being agnostic and being atheist? : I know something but I'm not 100% sure, so I'd prefer an answer from someone who really knows what is he talking about.

: Thanks.

An Athiest believes that anything that exists is part of the universe, therefore there can be no supernatural events, only natural ones, no matter how super or ununderstandable they are. An Agnostic refuses to state they have or do not have knowlage to decide, although everyone believes something, even if you are an agnostic.
