they therefore exercise faith in the probability that future evidence will never come about, which would necessitate a change to their determination.
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.
