Stylebook entries on Atheism/Agnosticism

Someone who is unsure whether there is a God or who believes it is unknowable whether God exists. Sometimes, the former is referred to as “weak agnosticism” and the latter is called “strong agnosticism.” Do not confuse with atheist.

Critics, including some in the freethought community, dislike the word, which they consider pretentious and condescending.
