"A true skeptic must be an agnostic, not an atheist, because the existence of God can be neither proven nor disproven."
If you buy that statement then the position of belief is as illogical as the position of disbelief.
How about "a true theist must be an agnostic, not an Christian, because the existence of God can be neither proven nor disproven"? Exact same yardstick but it sounds stupid.
Why do skeptics have to act noncommital when believers get to tout their labels? While you cannot disprove Vishu, Zeus, and Qetzcoatl - I'm certain you are not agnostic about them. Look I'm certain about something that has not been proven!
I cannot prove otherwise but would like your permission to call myself atheist.
