    Thats very interesting and , if one looks at it in a particular way, very philosophical...even spiritual.

    I'm not atheist and I'm not religious. I don't care about religion - I don't have any real thoughts about religion whatsoever. Whereas being an atheist means you believe there's no God etc., I don't really know or care.

    Not exactly. Atheist means exactly what it sounds like it means... a-theist... free from theism, hence free from religion and religious beliefs, or free from a belief in God. That's not exactly the same thing as actively disbelieving in God (small distinction I know). It's sort of a misconception that it means something as simple as "there is no god", because that in itself is a religious belief.

    Agnostic means that you are uncertain about the existance of God, but not that you simply don't care OR that you disbelieve it specifically. Athiest is usually used to describe both those who don't care and those who actively disbelieve in God, but that's something of a misuse of the term, as the meaning should be roughly "free from theism and religious beliefs".

    The word you're looking for is probably areligious, which Webster's defines as "not practicing a religion; indifferent to or uninfluenced by a religion". Pretty much exactly what Robertinho described.

    Anyway, my family is historically Anglican, and I was christened, but I was raised Athiest and am Agnostic by belief.

    That's called narcissism, and it's a condition, not a religion.

    I'm agnostic - to me many atheists conform to a belief structure and devotion not unlike that of a religion. I can accept the idea of a god (or gods) were it proven, but it'd be pretty funny if they conformed or were party to the changing social reasons we've used their name and stories in service of. Most likely if creator-like superior life-forms were to exist, they're uninterested in intervening in our affairs - if they are, and they meddle, well, that's got be a real worry and certainly shouldn't be a precursor to worship.
