The existence of God

There are three positions people can take on the question of the existence of God:

  • Theist - someone who believes that God exists. Theists do not necessarily believe they can prove God's existence.
  • Agnostic - someone who holds the view that it is impossible to know the truth about some things, such as God's existence or the afterlife.
  • Atheist - someone who holds the view that there is no God. Atheists do not necessarily believe they can prove atheism to be true.
