Between your comment and shocktroop's comment, I'd have to agree, especially with up-against-the-peg atheists like Dawkins. We're probably getting into subtle word definitions here, but I tend to think of agnostics as people who are leaning towards existance of a deity or universal force of some kind, and atheists as people who are not. Really though, agnostics and atheists are more like each other than they are like theists, in that neither is using a purportedly divine handout to bolster their prejudices.

I know you think you thought you knew what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you understood what you thought I meant.
