Would you call a person who believes in God but not religion Agnostic?
No, Agnostic is someone who is undecided about the presence of God.
A person who believes in God, but not religion is a Deist.
I am a Deist.
Religion is a man made concept, God has no religion. He made all of us, and He pretty much likes all of us, even though He may not like some of the things we do.

A person who believes in God or a "Universal Mind" but does not believe in religion would be considered "Spiritual" in my opinion. Some others would call them "Non-denominational", meaning they don't practice any particular religion.
God made man and man made religion.
Religion early on in many ways was similar to a form of government designed to keep society in check.
You don't need a church or middleman to have a relationship with god. One man's opinion!
If I remember my philosophy professors correctly, I believe that "agnostic" is an epistemological term, referring not just to someone who is undecided about the existence of God, but to someone who believes that we have no way of knowing such a thing (hence, the issue of epistemology).
I've heard the term "Theistic Agnostic", which I've always taken to mean "someone who believe in a God but doesn't believe we can know too many specifics about Him/Her/It". That may be closer to what you're talking about.
By the dictionary meaning a person who doubts the presence of God is an agnostic. If someone believes in God then they acknowledge the presence of a Superior energy that contols the working of the Universe. They just do not like the strucured form of accepting a form put forth by a religious group.

Why do so many people have misperceptions about atheism and agnosticism?
by Cattleprod Media 8 years ago
I find most people are clueless. They say they are atheist, but can't properly form an argument as to WHY, or they say they are agnostic, with zero clue as to WHAT that is.Ignorance, above all, is our weakness. Not religion. Although ignorance and religion are good bedfellows.
