"Слава мне!" :)

I've scored for agnosticism. I am 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.

UPD: My comment:
A little fun thing about explanations. Some lazy fun test-passers are likely not to even know what is agnosticism, so, the author of this test seems to have presupposed this, or why explain otherwise? The interesting point is the concept of a 'devout believer' and the 'true believe'. Belief has actually nothing to do with proof. If we do believe in something, we do it regardless of weather it's proven or not, and If we believe in something proven because it's proven, that means, we KNOW it. Knowledge is a value by its ground, belief is a value by itself, so, there's no proof or even provability needed. By the way, concerning God, its more appropriate to speak of faith rather than of just the notion of believing. So, a believer takes the God he believes in for granted a priori, so for him the God does exist in any case, and it doesn't require any proof at all. So what difference in the world would make the idea of whether God's existence can or can not be proven? Moreover, a faithful believer is the One who believes and won't change it the next moment even under certain influence or pressure. Even in the exceptional case refuseng once belief and/or faith as a result of some dramatic life experience occures due to emotional shift or devastation, but not to logical proof.
So, a theist-agnostic can believe in God as truly as I disbelieve, and all - regardless of any proof. That's a question of value, not of logic.
