"I'm not an atheist. There's a really big difference between an atheist and someone who just doesn't believe in religion. Religion to me is a bureaucracy between man and God that I don't need. But I'm not an atheist, no. I believe there's some force. If you want to call it God... I don't believe God is a single parent who writes books"

"Simply put, theists don't deny, agnostics don't know, atheists don't believe, and apatheists don't care about the existence of gods. "

"Apatheism -- a disinclination to care all that much about one's own religion, and an even stronger disinclination to care about other people's"

He may say he is but the notion that is often coupled with apatheism is the "disinclination to care about other people's". Apathy is not rational.
