...i just choose not to believe in religion itself or a set of rules used to govern my life. i don't doubt there could be a god, or doubt that there might not be one
agnostic vs atheist: i am scientifically-minded and to be atheist would be against my "beliefs" as a scientist.
i am my own god; i believe in myself and live by my own religion. if i was wrong all along and there happens to be a god when i die, i will not have done anything to piss it off in my lifetime, so i'm fine either way.
