The term ‘atheism’ formally entered the English language in the 17th century but examples I cited from Indian philosophical schools of thought dating back 1000 years earlier openly and completely rejected notions of a God.

Likewise, Buddhism rejects the idea of a supreme deity.

Those are most certainly not examples of agnosticism Ray
