missing options:

humanist

non-theist

Non-theist = atheist.  The prefix "a" means "not."

I'm Jewish, and half of Israel's population that considers itself Jewish also considers itself agnostic or doesn't believe in God.

Yeah, are you a a kosher agnostic?

"In silent resignation, one must never submit to them voluntarily, and even if one is imprisoned in some ghastly dictatorship's jail, where no action is possible - serenity comes from the knowledge that one does NOT accept it. To deal with men by force, is as impractical as to deal with nature by persuasion... Which is the policy of savages who rule men by force, and who plead with nature by prayers, incantations and bribes (sacrifies)." - Ayn Rand

Nah I don't keep Kosher, it's really an outdated rule, but I still don't like pork that much.

Indifferent - closest to agnostic. Honestly I don't care whether there is a higher being or not, it doesn't effect my life.
Probably doesn't affect your life, either.

You're going to do this everytime I mess up now aren't you?

Why don't you foil his sinister plot with your spell checker, or do you consider that cheating? E.g., my spell checker tells me that "every time" is two words.

As the state feeds off of the limitation and destruction of legitimate government, anarchy is its essence.

To claim "economic rent" from someone Else's labor when applied to land, which is something no one can own outright, is in itself, to claim landlord status over raw nature. It is an attempt at coercive monopoly power that is at the root of statism.

I'm pretty surprised there are so many "pagans" who listen to the show. The christian block is rather suprising as almost 70 percent of americans who are religious have some christian religion.
Do any believers  want to share why they are convinced there is a god (or gods)?

Humanism is a philosophy...it can be religious or secular, so I would say no.

Definetly agnostic.

I have no idea what is out there - I'm pretty sure that something is more complex than humans and the earth as we know it; but I can't even imagine what it is, or the magnitude of it.
