Godspeak

When we associate people with their beleifs about God, three definitions are most common.

Theists: People who beleive in the existence of God
Atheists: People who beleive in the non-existence of God
Agnostics: People who admit they do not know, but remain open to either possibility

But are these the only possibilities?

What about people who know that God exists? I would like to call these people Mystics.
What about people who do not know, but intuitively feel God exists? I would like to call these people Seekers.

Logically, there are two more possibilities. But I do not know what labels to associate with these options.

People who know that God does not exist (I am guessing this can only be a logical conclusion, partly because I would like to call myself a seeker :)), and people who intuitively feel God doesn't exist (I am not sure if this option is even possible!!).
