: What do you call someone who doesn't care whether God exists? I'm neither theist nor atheist nor agnostic. I simply don't care one way or the other.
That's an interesting question in that there are 2 possible answers :)
I'm not aware that there is such a term available, but I could be wrong. I'm sure someone can come up with a creative name.
How about notheist?
On the other hand, does anyone exist who doesn't subconsciously wonder whether God exists at some stage of their lives? Very few people who don't care would even bother writing on this site, due to natural apathy :) Unless of course, they come for the free entertainment!
Fundamentally within the human psyche, I would think that everyone at some stage would consider the concept of higher religious deity of some sort for a short period. If for nothing more than contemplating what happens after death, or forming some semblance of a meaning towards life. Then again, I guess enjoying life without considering this is more than possible too :)
Perhaps, you signify the silent majority finally using their voice.
Perhaps, in 2002 the big question should be 'who really cares?'
