Weak atheism

Weak atheism or negative atheism is the lack of belief in any gods without the conviction that no gods exist. This also describes some agnostics.

Weak atheism is in contrast to strong atheism, in which the atheist makes the positive assertion that there are no gods, and theism, in which the theist asserts that there is at least one god of some kind. The terms atheist and atheism are often used to indicate strong atheism, though it also includes weak atheism in some contexts.
