T.H. Huxley

The term "atheist agnostic" is the product of two questions:

  1. Do I believe in a theistic God? No, I’m an atheist.
  2. Do I believe that a deistic God exists? There’s not enough evidence, I’m agnostic.

The two answers are joined together to form the term atheist agnostic, this process is detailed above.
