The difference between atheism, theism, and agnosticism.

The chart below is made in response to this chart, which was meant to show that atheism is not a belief, and that there can be agnostic atheists and agnostic theists.  
In contrast, my chart shows atheism ‘is’ a belief and that there is no such thing as an agnostic atheist or agnostic theist (only an ‘agnostic’–that’s why there are two boxes for that view, though they could easily be combined into one).  Previous articles on this topic are below the chart and may or may not need some rethinking in light of this chart.
