    I can't imagine anything less relevant to Atheism than Pantheism.  To believe that the sun, a table and a human being are all one/synonymous with some sort of god, is quite religious to say the very least.  Agnosticism, on the other hand, is much closer to Atheism than Pantheism can ever be, because, an Agnostic is neutral about the subject of god---if they are not then they are not an Agnostic.

    I agree with John Sarkis. Atheism is most definitely not related due to the fact that an atheist does not believe in a higher being at all. Pantheism is the belief that god is essentially tied in to the universe itself from what I understand... it's all one thing. So I would say that Pantheism would be closer associated with a religious person because they would be able to relate to the idea more than an atheist who does not believe at all in a god of any kind no matter how close that god becomes to being the actual universe.

    I do believe it's possible for pantheism to be more relevant to an atheist. For example, many theists believe in god as a literal deity, a.k.a. the guy with the white beard. Therefore, the idea that god is everything, and everything is god, suggests that he is not literal, but more of an unseen force. Similarly, atheists might interpret pantheism as more of a description than a method of worship. The universe, and everything in it, is incredibly beautiful and mysterious. Pantheism may just be assigning the word 'god' to describe that beauty and mystery. As an atheist, I've frequently referred to incredible things as divine, but it's not because I believe they have any connection to a god or heaven, it's just that normal words do not describe something's majesty. But, that could just be because I'm a writer, and I see all of these as words first and religious associations second.
