Checking the dictionary
Author of this site really needs to look up what ‘Agnostic’ means.. or maybe just *understand* it. That was a terrible response.
“…but you are wrong that I do not believe in the possibility of a God…”
- That is the very definition of agnostic.
Not to say I don’t find the aethiest extremity hilarious and for the most part, useful to refer to when trying to ’smack some sense’ into idiots that get carried away with how great their god(s) are.
Oh well. It’s all in good fun (I hope; massive countrywide and worldwide wars lasting years have started over this kind of crap).
Okay, just to be safe, I looked up “agnostic.” Blatantly stealing from Dictionary.com, I get:
1. a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience.
2. a person who denies or doubts the possibility of ultimate knowledge in some area of study.
Neither of these apply to me. I don’t hold that the existence of God (or other deities) is unknown or unknowable, and I think knowledge of God’s existence is possible, which specifically makes me not an agnostic.
While we’re here, let’s check the site’s definition of “atheist.”
a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings.
And that part after the “or” would be me — I disbelieve the existence of God. But show me compelling evidence, and I will believe.
