Uh... is there a name for what I believe?
I recently officially un-converted from Christianity. I know there are a lot of people who have, so I figure there's probably a name for my belief system/religion:
-I don't believe in God, exactly, although I believe it's technically possible that there is a G/god
-I don't follow any organized religion and am sceptical of all of them, to a degree
-I'm pretty open to being shown evidence of the truth, but I'm not going to accept something as always objectively true unless it's proven, not just testified for
-I know people sincerely believe in religion even if they're "sincerely wrong" and that we should respect each other's differences that way
-I don't claim to know the origin or nature of reality (could have been created [though how did the creator come to be?], could be brains-in-a-jar, could be something no one's imagined)
-At the moment, I don't really believe in life after death (though since that's not been proven, I still accept it as possible)
-I don't worship anybody (and now I'm feeling hit with hubris-guilt, haha)
I'm not asking this to be preached to... ^^; But is there a name for my stance on religion?

"Agnostic-Atheist: does not believe god exists, but it can't be proved "
False. Although to be fair, perhaps a better term is "Out of date".
Atheism is a position on belief. Agnosticism is a position on knowledge.
I believe there is no god. But I cannot prove or claim it. I do not claim to KNOW this as a fact. I am an agnostic atheist also termed weak or negative. as well.

You are describing Agnosticism bordering on Deism.
With all due respect to Clive Jones (above), there is no such thing as Agnostic Atheism. Agnostics are uncertain about the existence of God. For an Atheist, there is no doubt. Atheists completely deny the existence of God.
