Any agnostic here? - April 19th 2014, 09:02 PM

Hi everyone, I'm an agnostic person. For me to prove the existence or non existence of god to other people is not important at all. I focus mu energy, time and intellect into discovering more about myself and about the humanity; thus making me a humanist too.

Re: Any agnostic here? - April 19th 2014, 11:38 PM

I'm a Christian, but I'm beginning to lean towards the agnostic side. I'm not sure if that's the exact religion that I am leaning towards, though. See, I don't see any solid proof against God, but I don't know of any solid proof for God either. Other than that tingly feeling I always used to get in church, which has gone away ever since I started questioning. So what, if I don't fully believe, then God is just leaving and giving up on me, or what?
What is the exact definition of the agnostic religion, anyway?

I'm agnostic, not really serious about it though, mainly because I don't really care about religion.

Agnostic - which is basically the belief that the existence of a deity (or deities) is unprovable. Which doesn't mean denying the existence (athiest), although different strokes for different folks.

This view may correlate slightly with apatheism, rather than agnosticism, where someone is apathetic to the God Question. However, if you're more focused on "discovering oneself and humanity", that is a very humanist belief. I, myself, don't really identify with either atheism or agnosticism, but more with secular humanism, while similar to yourself, I don't think it is overly important whether or not we can prove or disprove the existence of a deity.

I am a weak-agnostic. I've wavered back and forth between atheism, weak-atheism, and agnosticism, but as I begin to experience more in the world and have more of an open mind towards other people and their beliefs, I've discovered that I am a weak-agnostic.

I'm an atheist-agnostic So I don't believe in a God or an afterlife or anything like that but I am open to the idea that maybe something is out there, I'm just not concerned about what it is at this point in my life, science and human nature is first, then spirituality

I wave between Atheism and Agnosticism too. I don't believe in a God or afterlife but I'll admit I could be wrong. Nobody knows for certain what happens before we die. I just find the existence of God very hard to accept.

I believe that whether there is a god or not, we're on our own.

Eh, mostly. But some days I find myself going back to old habits and calling on the Christian God. Other times I find myself strengthening my resolve by the Norse Gods. *shrugs*

Re: Any agnostic here? - April 27th 2014, 03:34 AM

I don't think very many people here actually know what agnosticism is. the "gnostic" in agnosticism basically means "knowledge". So Agnosticism basically means "without knowledge".

Theism/atheism refer to belief, not knowledge. Agnostic and atheist are not mutually exclusive terms. I'm pretty sure that the majority of the world is "agnostic".

I've noticed that some people say "I'm not an atheist. I'm agnostic." The majority of these "agnostics" are also atheists, because they haven't accepted a god claim. In fact, I'd guess that the original poster is technically an atheist too.
