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 […]

Another agnostic

I highly doubt the existence of a God. I believe observable evidence points to the lack of a God. I do, however hold agnostic beliefs. I accept the fact that the only definite truth is that we exist. There may indeed be a God, who is hiding his existence to you for an unknown purpose. […]

An agnostic

Atheism, by definition, is the belief in the non-existence of any deity. I am non-religious, but no sir, I am not an atheist. I believe there is something more to life then what we can possibly come close to understanding through science or religion. If you cannot truly believe(

Agnosticism = fearful atheist?

Isn’t Agnosticism the fear of God by an athiest? That’s a perplexing idea. I don’t believe in God, or a diety, but JUST IN CASE… I’m going to say that I can’t prove either way, so I don’t want to difinitively claim there is no god… hmmm… Just my thought on Agnosticism. Agnosticists believe that […]

Absolute Agnosticism

Workability: When I say something supernatural has zero workability I mean simply that it does not provide me a tool for accomplishing anything or discovering other reliable information. A map of London may prove useful and workable. A map of heaven is not of much value that this feeble mind can imagine. Of course a […]

Absolute Agnosticism

Hello again. “Yet you have resisted my attempts to get you to assign a degree of “workability and usefulness” to the supernatural or unproven. Ah, but I do. I assign values of zero workability and zero usefulness. That is precisely the point, I believe. Any statements about the supernatural/untestable are, from a scientific viewpoint, meaningless […]

Absolute Agnosticism

Hello: Ah, this shows every sign of spinning out of control into “angels on the heads of pins” land and beyond. We agree, it seems, about something fundamental here: The problem, to a large extent, is rooted in language. So, rather than continue down this language-trapped track, I will just say a few words about […]

Absolute Agnosticism

My my. A big one. Let’s consider the basic question: Is the universe:- (A) something created by a sentient, all powerful being, (B) the result of naturally occuring process containing no element of will – like the Big Bang or vacuum fluctuations (C) something that always has existed as we find it (a la steady […]

Absolute Agnosticism

Hello. Curioser and curiouser… All right, let’s do some house cleaning. Let’s forget that the words “theist”, “atheist” and “agnostic” exist. Let us say: 1. There are people who believe that god exists. 2. There are people who believe that no gods exist. 3. There are people who do not believe that god exists and […]
