Not really. I find it very unlikely that there's anything remotely similar to our concept of God (which doesn't make me an agnostic, I'm hardly "in doubt" or thinking that this is an answer we can't ever have) and even if there were, I don't think we should even care (reason why I'm quite comfortable saying I'm an atheist rather than an agnostic).
Now, the reason why I disagree with most atheists is because I loathe normativity more than I disbelieve in God - I couldn't care less if there are religious people in the world. The moment Thagard says you shouldn't base the meaning your life in religion, I'm almost tempted to say "Oh, yeah? Watch me!". But then again, in order to do it I'd have to give in and adapt to the normative rules of any religious system - which takes me back to my original position
So you actually dislike conformity <--- granted an over-simplification of the nuance inherent to your position.
Yet you conflate your thinking with this non-conformist attitude, thereby conforming to a strict adherence of your own making!
This existential paradox will soon implode and it WILL END VERY POORLY FOR YOU!!!
You have been warned.
Now with extra singles!
