You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. Though it is generally taken that agnostics neither believe nor disbelieve in God, it is possible to be a theist or atheist in addition to an agnostic. Agnostics don't believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof). Agnosticism is a philosophy that God's existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.

what about writing a little note here? and what if i have no idea what to write about?
let's say that i'm a little sick at the moment. that i'm in a knitting period. that i'm desperately in need for a new appartment. that the weather is a little grey and the trees a big green, that i like this period.

let's rather entertain you with this pretty picture of emily browning.

You match Lane. While you have a healthy
appreciation for almost everything, you are the
Goddess of obscure music. Most people have
never even heard of your favorite bands, but
you don't mind educating them. You're pretty
much obsessed with all things music. Your dream
is to play drums for one of your favorite
