Not really, what separates me from agnosticism is demanding evidence, I have no concrete evidence either way so it would be impossible for me to say, for certain, that there is a god or not.
An agnostic would say 'I don't know, there might be'
An atheist would say 'I don't know for certain but the evidence would suggest not'
Its possibly a subtle difference but its there.
For me there is simply too much evidence that contradicts what the bible says, that's not to say that at some point in the future that evidence could become apparent and my beliefs, based on current knowledge, would be challenged.
A similar thing could be said about psychic abilities, I don't believe, based on existing evidence, that it is possible to talk to the dead. I could, at some point, be proved wrong but extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof and as yet, as far as I'm aware, that proof does not exist.
