Agnostic?

The Christian notion of a Deity would make the reason of a sensible person revolt - although some will disagree.
Their 'God' is touted as the One & Only and unless you could accept this, you are automatically and arrogantly deemed to be 'godless'

There are other understandings of this, of course, but in any case how could the lesser - humans - claim total knowledge of the greater -Deity?

Just how does a person prove the non existence of the figment of another's imagination

Can you prove that He is a figment of my imagination?

The onus is on you to prove that. If you are claiming that there is a god, show us some evidence ...

Since we know it can't be proven one way or the other I say to each his own. People believe in different higher powers if that's what you want to call it or not at all and they should be able to do it freely but also without pushing their own beliefs on others. It's annoying dealing with pushy holy rollers.
