So what is the word, name or phrase for somebody like me?

I am entirely prepared to accept the possibility that beings may exist within this Universe that are far more evolved and powerful than we are, and who may have interfered in one way or another with our development in accordance with an agenda of their own.

It may be the case that there is a pre-existing First Cause for the Universe, and that this first cause may be intelligent. But this would be a level and type of intelligence so far beyond, and different from, our own as to be incomprehensible.

In neither case, as far as I am concerned, would such a being be deserving of, or even require, worship. It may want worship, but that ipso facto would render it undeserving.

So while I consider it possible that as being exists which might fill some or all of the criteria required to be designated a god, I don't know if it does. If I did know, I would still refuse to worship such a being, according it only the respect one intelligent being owes another.

So, am I agnostic, atheist, SBNR are just bloody awkward?
