Nullifidian

Atheistic, skeptic or disbelieving. ''In matters of religion, some people consider themselves nullifidian.''

Nice find, Grogie. I do believe I will use this one. Atheism seems now to be treated as nearly a religion in and of itself, and agnosticism doesn't get any traction at all. Nullifidian is, so far at least, rather neutral.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

I'd say atheism is only portrayed as a religion as a way to discredit that perspective, implying lack of belief is an article of faith.

Still, nullifidian may be a better way to describe the state of existence of a baby or young child, that has not yet been told of such concepts. A bit clumsy, but I quite like it.
