I've always assumed that he was at least a very strong weak agnostic, if that makes sense.

Here is what Twain had to say about Robert G. Ingersoll upon his death:

“I heard four speeches which I can never forget by that splendid soul Bob Ingersoll. It was just the most supreme combination of words ever put together since the world began. His words will sing through my memory always as the divinest that ever enchanted my ears. America will never again see his equal. Of all men, living and dead, I love Ingersoll the most. Except for my daughter, I have not grieved for any death as I have grieved for his.”
