This is why I like Camus' take: there's no evidence for God, therefore living as if he/she exists is living in bad faith. Making any belief system around things you don't have evidence for is bad, and making beliefs centered around things that could be true is equally bad. I don't think being agnostic is optimal because you're forming a belief system that incorporates both the lack of evidence for absence and presence of something.

It has no bearing on truth, but conventionally those claiming something exists needs to bear proof of a positive, not proof of negative as this is less informative and consequential.
