A true atheist

is truly hard to find.
As they say in Albania:
Vetë e vërteta s'është shumë e fuqishme -
The truth, in truth, has little power.

Perhaps a true agnostic is even harder to find? In the words of T H Huxley- "In matters of the intellect follow your reason as far as it will take you, without regard to any other consideration, and do not pretend that conclusions are certain which are not demonstrated or demonstrable." In my experience, it is very rare indeed to find someone who is content to live with (not least accept) such constant uncertainty and enquiry! Atheism has slipped into drawing conclusions just as surely as any other religion.

For me, atheism is the conviction that the existence of a Judaeo-Christian-Islamic god is extremely and utterly unlikely. But of course not impossible.
If that entity exists in any or all of his described aspects or avatars - and if there is an afterlife as described - then most of us are truly scuppered.
Even the alleged Heaven of the J-C-I believers is a kind of hell - with no dogs in it, and certainly no bonobos.
