The Internet judged me and found me uncertain.

You are Agnostic

You're not sure if God exists, and you don't care.
For you, there's no true way to figure out the divine.
You rather focus on what you can control - your own life.
And you tend to resent when others "sell" religion to you.

Frankly, I think I'm more of an agnostic theist. Sure, the concept is inherently contradictory, but then so am I.

I think the ability to admit both doubt and a lack of understanding requires a lot of strength. Having faith can sometimes be the easy way out. Accepting that which cannot be proved also means that at some point one gives up being analytical.

Or so it seems to me tonight. Ultimately I must admit I have nothing but questions.

Fortunately I enjoy omphaloskepsis.

I don't think that agnostic theist is inherently contradictory at all.

Having questions is a good thing. Doubt and faith go hand in hand. In fact, a healthy sense of questioning and doubt can be healthy. When you're really certain about something then would I say that faith is weak and can stifle growth or maturity.

Faith in general is about trusting things you don't completely understand or know, not being certain.
