Absolute Agnosticism

Hello again. This is fun, indeed. Most of what we have both said is raised in this: “You say that it is “attractive, but nonsense” to say that an atheist and an agnostic share the same belief. I think this is a matter of defining terms. I see no reason someone can’t be an agnostic […]

Absolute Agnosticism

Hello. Thank you for your lengthy and considered response. You have touched on precisely the point I was trying to make in my cryptic message and in my blog post. “…that someone who is not convinced that deities exist is just as correctly called an atheist as someone who insists that deities do not exist…” […]

How amusing and sadly typical that, upon visitng iamanatheist.com I am informed that, like it or not, I am an atheist. Well, folks, I am not. http://www.johnbennett.info/index.php/2007/12/27/agnosticism-and-the-new-atheism/ Sorry to hear that you find instant conversion to atheistm through visiting a Web site typical. Personally, I think it’s rather atypical, but you may have more experience […]

Sorry, In response on my earlier post, I must remark that I do not deam it impossible to find a true answer on the question of the existence of god. In fact I am completely in doubt. Is there an objective truth? I don’t now. I define agnosticism as doubting the truth in religion as […]

I was curious if anyone had ever discussed the point of deciding whether or not there is a God, diety, etc. I say this because I consider myself an “apathetic agnostic” in that I just don’t care whether or not God exists. I consider a Supreme Being’s existence, or lack thereof, utterly inconsequential to my […]

Hello to the site host and his dedicated readers. I have taken an interest in your site and wanted to contribute some. After browsing through some of your posts and other “atheist” blogs (you’ll understand the quotations later), I thought it may be appropriate to help define the terms by which many of these debates, […]

If you admit a deity is possible, why not call yourself an agnostic or just say you don’t know how the universe occurred? Are you against the concept of God, or against the concept of a Creator? Are there some facets of evolution that make you believe a creator could not have created all the […]

I read in one of your posts that you acknowledge the possibility that there is a god, however slight that possibility may be. Doesn’t that make you an agnostic? If I thought that existence of God was ultimately unknowable, I’d be an agnostic. I don’t think that’s the case. I also see no reason to […]

First of all, I thank you profusely for you well-structured and reasoned arguments, along with your (surprisingly) un-confrontational manner. It’s a rare thing, and something I don’t possess (however much I wish I did). I’d like to point out a few of things that, as an agnostic, really annoy me, and get me quite riled […]
