      That's why we need a new word. It would denote people who are agnostic as to God's existence but think it's nevertheless obvious that God doesn't care about human welfare and therefore they hold no reverence toward any God who might exist. I think a position like that would be tenable in the Marvel Universe.

    Sounds a lot like Deism?

No, most Deists are reverent. They figure we didn't have to exist at all, so since we do, we have a reason to thank and praise the Creator. They also have a sense of wonder and appreciation with regard to wildlife and its awesome diversity. It's a half full/half empty thing. Do we vilify God because kids are starving in Africa (which, by the way, is mostly the fault of humans) or do we revere God because Africa abounds with giraffes, elephants, lions, and so many other amazing creatures?
