What does it mean to be religious? Atheistic? Agnostic? Probably totally different things to different people. But to take an entirely deluded approach and make my own generalizations, I would venture to say that those who are agnostic neither believe nor disbelieve but are non-religious; that those who are atheists believe science and religion are mutually exclusive and tend towards being irreligious; and that those who are religious identify with a particular belief system to such a degree that it can be nearly impossible to communicate or find mutually agreeable language with those in other traditions or systems of thought, causing divisiveness and giving religion a bad name.
