Semantics... so you think you are agnostic? Think again.

One of the things I enjoy about listening to the Non-Prophets is that they share a similar definition of atheism as I do, which is simply one who rejects theistic claims. I also agree with them that any claim that one can know the non-existence of a god (or gods) is a ridiculous assertion of a negative position that few rational atheists would actually take.

Because the word atheist has been so well demonized, I think it is time to reclaim the term and apply it to this broader sense.
