Too many people assert that, since nobody can know, we must all be agnostics. And some atheists call themselves agnostics because they do not understand (or hold to) the above definitions.

I can't be an atheist, because I do not know that there is no God. I also do not know that there is one. But my mind is open to the possibility of either.
I choose to worship the FSM because he is thought to be so forgiving and tolerant. I love those qualities in a God.

Wikipedia wrote:...in a religious context, to be 'Gnostic' should be understood as being reliant not on knowledge in a general sense, but as being specially receptive to mystical or esoteric experiences of direct participation with the divine. Indeed, in most Gnostic systems the sufficient cause of salvation is this 'knowledge of' ('acquaintance with') the divine.
Does that make me an a-agnostic, and, according to my previous statement wouldn't that make me an a-a-agnostic as well.
