I believe that God exist, is good, and want’s to be know because I encountered Jesus. Absent God’s work, I am very skeptical that human reason alone can build a rational case for or against God. Yes, I know the rational cases. I’m just not sure any of them are definitive.
Am I a Christine agnostic? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agnosticism
Agnosticism, in fact, is not a creed, but a method, the essence of which lies in the rigorous application of a single principle … Positively the principle may be expressed: In matters of the intellect, follow your reason as far as it will take you, without regard to any other consideration. And negatively: In matters of the intellect do not pretend that conclusions are certain which are not demonstrated or demonstrable.
— Thomas Henry Huxley
For example, I insist that science is silent, is agnostic, about Adam.
I often say that had it no been for Jesus, I would likely be an atheist. Maybe I would have been more likely an agnostic. Which brings me to some pointed questions.
Am I an agnostic in any sense of the word?
@Dan_Eastwood you identify as an “agnostic atheist”. Why? Why not an “agnostic theist” or just an “agnostic”? Why say “atheist”?
@Patrick and the other atheists here, why are you “atheist” instead of merely “agnostic” or even “nontheist”?
To keep the conversation about non-Christian religions going, here is a quote from a Hindu Agnostic:
Who really knows?
Who will here proclaim it?
Whence was it produced? Whence is this creation?
The gods came afterwards, with the creation of this universe.
Who then knows whence it has arisen?
Curious what I will here.
